New Extra-Affordable Faux Wood Blinds

United Supply has come out with their brand new Pinnacle faux wood blinds line! We got a hint about it in June, but this incredibly affordable line has just debuted. In fact they're SO new, I can't download any photos yets. But I've seen them in person and they are just beautiful. These premium 2" shades, which are available in three classic shades of white come with all the bells and whistles, such as a clean-lined decorative faux wood valance to hide the headrail, a breakaway cord consolidator (so important for child safety), decorative wood tassel and trapezoidal bottom rail, which provides tighter closure than a rectangular bottom rail.

However, what is really special about these shades is their exclusive light blocking feature, which cuts down on those eye-piercing pin hole rays of sunshine at 6am that always seem to be pointed directly in your face. Not only that, they are stronger and lighter than other competitors' shades, making them much easier to lift and operate. They will not warp or yellow in up to 140' temperatures. That sounds a lot like this summer, doesn't it? And the slats are attached to the cording ladder, which means the slats won't shift back and forth. If you've ever spent time lining up the slats on your wood blinds, you know what I'm talking about... Another great feature is these shades are lead and VOC-free, meaning they manufactured with no dangerous chemicals. So important in bedrooms and nurseries.

Now I know you are asking the Big Question: just how extra-affordable are these super-duper magic shades? Here is a sample price: one shade at 36" wide and 48" long retails at $95.00. (and that doesn't include the current LFCDS 20% discount.) cha-ching!
A comparable Everwoods shade by Hunter Douglas retails about $178.00. I'd call that pretty substantial savings, wouldn't you?

I just love finding great products at great prices!
