Island Way Shades


Sheer Shadings are one of the most elegant and versatile products that can be installed in a window. Horizontal fabric vanes float between two layers of soft knitted fabrics, to soften your view outside with a choice of fabrics.  Sheer shades are operated with either a continuous cord or a Somfy RTS battery motor.


Vertical Sheer Shadings perfectly compliment its horizontal counterparts.  Both products are available as a translucent or a room darkening product. Vertical sheers use contoured sheer columns with soft fabric vanes and a tailored fabric header concealing the white track system.



  • Four distinctly different variations of vane positions are available for numerous combinations of privacy, view and light control.

  • An adjustable weight system hidden in the bottom rail end caps allows for on-the-spot skew adjustment for a balanced appearance in the window.

  • Vanes glide from open, to closed to “out of sight” with elegant hardware.

  • Operate Horizontal Sheer Shadings with the press of a button using Somfy battery motorization.

Cambrai roman shades gracefully covers windows with elegance and quality.


The jute and flax used to weave the fabric for Cambrai shades are uniquely beautiful with a touch of bamboo throughout.



  • All shades include edge binding

  • Privacy and blackout liners available

  • Multiple control options available

  • Energy efficient

  • Minimal light gap

  • Versatile controls and options

  • Matching vertical honeycomb has the tightest stack which gives you the fullest view when the shade is open

  • Operate with the touch of a button using Somfy RTS technology
