    Just recently I've had a couple customers that have been upset by the fact that we won't allow a free hanging weight on vertical blinds like in the past. The reason for this is that Federal Law has told us this is illegal due to children and pets getting caught in the cord loops and choking. We are mandated to fasten all cords to the wall with a tension pulley.

    The newest edition to the Hunter Douglas family is the Hobbled Roman Shade called the Solera.  It is beautiful, elegant, and easy to operate.  What I really like best about it is the way it compacts so neatly at the top head rail when it's open, unlike traditional romans that have a lot of "stack."  It comes in light filtering and room darkening options.  And similar to the honeycomb's design, it has pockets that are designed to make the shade more energy efficient.  I just ordered a Solera sample for our showroom this and should have it up next week.  Stop by the showroom and have a look at all our products on display, or as always we'll bring the samples and come right to you.

    Sunscreens come in many varieties from colors and styles to how much light they allow into your home.  The four main styles of sunscreens are 1%, 3%, 5%, and 10%.  On the picture above my sample shows the differences seamed together.  3% is on top, 5% in the middle and 10% on the bottom.  The easiest way to think about it is if you have a 3% sunscreen, we're stopping 97% of the light from coming through.

    [Hunter Douglas](http://www.aaablindfactory.com/hunter-douglas.php "http://www.aaablindfactory.com/hunter-douglas.php") just came out with a new hobbled fabric Roman shade called the Solera. It has some very elegant fabrics that come in light filtering and blackout style. It is also cordless and stacks very smoothly and neatly into the head rail.
