Discovering the Classic Appeal of Woven Wood Shades

In interior design, texture is one of the core design elements. No matter the size of your space, mindfully placed texture can help create a sense of depth and movement, which can enhance the overall appearance of other elements. Not only is adding furnishings with varying texture good design practice, but it is also an interior décor trend. Textured window treatments, like our woven wood shades, are both in style and provide a pop of visual interest to help break up walls and keep the eye engaged. Woven woods are also a great choice for classic design styles, like rustic and even minimalistic themes. At A Shade Above, we specialize in window treatments, so we know the intricacies of what goes into a great décor accent. This month, we’re focusing on a few of our favorite woven window treatments and why they’re worth the investment if you’re on the market for new interior décor.
