Roller Roman Shades



Window shades have come a long way from grandma’s roller shade. Optional operating systems add flexibility and motorization offers functionality with the touch of a button. Many Genesis shade fabrics are resistant to the elements and are ideal for use as SeasonVue® Shades to control light, glare and energy for outdoor rooms, lanais and screened in porches.

The addition of E Screen with KOOLBLACKTM Technology offers dark solar shade fabrics that provide
exceptional glare control and comfortable view through while reducing heat at the window.

Genesis has evolved to include roman shades to provide you exceptional light control with functional flair. Lafayette's TLC™ child safe lifting system works perfectly on lined or unlined roman shade styles and is now the standard for all roman shades made by Lafayette Interior Fashions.

For information on Panel Systems, see Genesis Panel Track.

Explore the exotic beauty of hand woven wood shades made from natural materials such as bamboo, wood, reed, bark, grasses and jute. With an unmatched selection of styles, the Manh Truc® Collection will take you on a whole new adventure. You'll not only find flat and hobbled roman shades, but you'll discover Panel Systems and even Shutters made with woven shade materials. Lafayette's TLC™ child safe lifting system works perfectly on lined or unlined roman shade styles and is now the standard for all roman shades made by Lafayette Interior Fashions.  The TLC Cordless System with CareRING offers enhanced child safety on any unlined flat contemporary roman shade.
