  • Overtones Review

    Posted on July 20 2017


    We have been selling Comfortex Window Treatments for over 20 years, they’re a great company.  A few months ago they re-launched one of the prettiest and most versatile shades we’ve ever sold.  It’s called the Comfortex Overtone.  It has been redesigned, has more fabric options, and has really been refined over the first generation.  It has become one of our most popular shades and for good reason. The shade’s fabric vanes can be opened at any height allowing you to see through a sheer.  They are double sided roller shades that bypass each other while raising or lowering the shade.  They have a nicely finished fabric wrapped headrail and the bottom rail is also fabric wrapped.  I think the bottom rail is a very nice touch and a definite improvement over the last generation.
