Hobbled Roman Shades (Soft Fold)

This roman shade style features horizontal, cascading soft folds that fall every 6 inches down the front of the fabric. These shades have permanent pleats when completely lowered and stack nicely into neat folds when raised. Traditional and elegant, Hobbled Roman Shades adds a tailored, lovely look to even the most casual room. The flexibility of this style works beautifully with all kinds of fabrics from more heavy, full-bodied to softer, more lightweight, providing privacy as well as insulation to a window treatment.

I deal with Shawn Bushway and he is always most helpful. The BlindsShopper process is very easy and I've never had a blind that didn't fit.
