Standard, Sundown®, Couplitairetm, and Modernairetm

Allure Transitional Shades magically transition natural light into the best light of your life.  You'll delight in the nearly endless variety of light control and viewing options at every level. Close your Allure Transitional shades to create the privacy you desire or transition your shades to enjoy exceptional view-through while gently filtering harsh daylight. 

Allure Sundown harmoniously blends beauty with privacy. Your transitional shades can transform from light filtering to total room darkening for ultimate privacy or to block the sun's harsh light from your furniture, floors or artwork.

Additional Allure options include the Couplitaire and Modernaire

The Allure Couplitaire option offers two shades in one - an Allure shade to the room side and a Genesis privacy shade to the street side!

Allure Modernaire is cassette free for the barest of minimalist design and European style!
