Hunter Douglas, American Design & Craftsmanship
The Hunter Douglas commitment to designing and crafting in the United States gives House of Window Coverings an important competitive edge and allows us to offer our clients distinctive, high functioning window treatments.
The President of Hunter Douglas, Ron Rubinoff describes how their emphasis is on American design and craftsmanship. Unlike many other products out on the market that are manufactured overseas, Hunter Douglas’ commitment to American made products is what sets the brand apart.
Mike Goldberg, Director of Engineering led the change to redesign all Hunter Douglas products. Goldberg worked in collaboration with other divisions and resources inside Hunter Douglas. As a result Hunter Douglas has proprietary operating systems LiteRise, UltraGlide and PowerView motorization. Goldberg and his team developed the innovative Modern Headrail for Provenance shades, Austria Woven Textures, Roman shades, Design Studio and Austria products, the headrail is designed to provide “two shades in one” as it holds both a shade and liner, able to operate independently. Goldberg states “The Modern HeadRail and new operating system had an immediate impact”. Hunter Douglas continues to differentiate their products using systems that are easy and aesthetically appealing to House of Window Coverings customers.
The latest product Solera Soft Shades, may be the poster child for America Design and Craftsmanship, being fully developed in the United States, from concept to execution. Unique in the marketplace, Solera shades combine a soft, sculpted look with cellular construction. Solera shades are unusual even though the fabrics are U.S. sourced. While most of the textile industry has moved overseas, there are still boutique mills making narrower width quality fabrics in the United States that can be used in the manufacturing process of the fabric for Solera shades. Adding to its appeal, the mid-priced Solera product offer the LiteRise cordless operating system and the UltraGlide retractable system. This proprietary and patented product has been embraced by our customers.
Mr. Rubinoff states ” Many different things make Hunter Douglas make the needle move when it comes to being a leader in the industry, we look for what makes us different”. American design and craftsmanship is an important advantage for Hunter Douglas and House of Window Coverings.
