Roman shades differ from standard window shades. They stack up evenly and neatly when opened and look smooth, unlike the typical vertical shades of blinds. In summer we all try to invite the outdoors inside through the open windows. However, the problems of cooling and strong light start too. That is why we turn to curtains, blinds and shutters – to reach a balance between ventilation and shade. When it comes to window treatment, then you can find nothing better than elegant roman window shades.

The name itself – Roman shades – calls visions of a grand and majestic Empire in its zenith. Historically, they are really connected with the Roman Empire, more precisely it is believed that the window covering of the famous Roman Coliseum was a huge cloth that was brought forward by a system of levers and pulleys. Many people believe that the flexible roof of the Colosseum gave the idea for the modern designs. Of course, the story varies depending on the historical source.
