Relaxed Roman Shade

Roman shades are an excellent alternative to blinds or drapes. The shades help soften a window's harsh lines while also helping control light and heat. Relaxed Roman shades are characterized by the curvature of their bottoms. These shades are an ideal fit for traditional-style rooms or those packed with feminine decor.
