The first type of roman shade is a Vignette roman shade. The vignette shades roll into a head rail and have a white backing for a uniform look. These can either be up or down, there is no way to vary the light and one of the more expensive treatments, although much less expensive than custom draperies. These are truly one of the most beautiful types of treatments.
There is also the type of roman shade that gathers when lifted, those are available in a hobbled (tear drop) or flat style. These are some of the most popular shades we sell since they are available in so many fabrics and can add a lot of style to a room. Some drawbacks, the strings are usually visible from the exterior of the home. Since they gather when lifted they can take up a lot of space at the top of your window.
