Provenance® woven wood shades were chosen for the first room featured on these pages. Available in bamboos, reeds, grasses and wood slats, these single-panel shades create a warm, casual look ideal for a family room or vacation home. The shades are semi-transparent, allowing varying degrees of light into a room. For additional control, independently operated shades fitted behind the woven wood can be lowered to darken the room.
