Welcoming homeowners into our motorized shading showroom

March 10, 2016

We’ve had some people come timidly into the showroom, unsure if they need to bring an interior designer with them. While most of our work is done with fabulously talented interior designers, we are always open and excited by the prospect of working with individual clients, to help them create and execute their vision. Many homeowners have found us through a referral, a web search or on the design site Houzz. Usually after a short discussion through email or phone, we invite clients into our showroom to see working versions of most of the beautiful products and systems we offer, along with the various customization options (some of which are shown in the photograph above). Recently, we had a client come in to get a better feel for our offerings. Not all products offer the same technology, and not all technologies have the same fabric options. She chose a system based on

We’d like to thank the Academy…

March 1, 2016

I’m pleased to share with you that Houzz, the home design, remodeling and decorating web site, recently awarded The Denver Shade Company a “Best of Houzz.” For the second year in a row, Houzz community members have rated us at the highest level. In regular terms, that means that we get good reviews. Why should you care about that? Because when it comes to selecting a service company, you look for the ones you know you can rely on to provide the best products and services. Our last review said we were one of the best contractors they’d ever worked with. Now, everyone likes to be noticed for good things they’ve done. But for us, it’s more about making sure our clients are completely satisfied with the system and design they’ve chosen. For us, it’s more about being the best service company than being recognized for it. Of course, we

Announcing Denver’s Premier Automated Shading Showroom

May 4, 2015

Buying anything sight unseen always feels like a gamble. Even if you can look at materials samples, it’s still nerve racking. We understand the challenge and to help calm our clients’ frazzled nerves, we’ve started building a showroom that’ll feature the very best in shading automation. Since we only do things one way—the right way—we’re excited to reveal that our showroom will be inside Denver’s hippest furniture and design center—Studio Como, the gleaming new furniture and design hub featuring B&B Italia, Flexform, Minotti, Ligne Roset and Vitra, to name a few. We chose their space because we want our clients to be able to visualize how gorgeous our products would look, feel and perform in the amazing rooms of your home. In case you aren’t familiar with Studio Como, Brad Fentress, founder and chief buyer, is as passionate about superior furniture and kitchens as The Denver Shade Company is about

We’re heading outside for some shade.

April 19, 2015

Until now my focus has been on interior shading options. It’s what I live and breathe. It’s what I dream about. It’s what my wife had to finally ban from dinner conversation so I would listen to my kids’ stories. For The Denver Shade Company, it’s always been about interior shading, to control light and maximize energy efficiency. But over the past few years, I’ve been studying net zero home design. I’ve begun to really consider how to maximize that efficiency and how exterior shading was just as important, if not more so, as interior. Here in Colorado, we pride ourselves on our outdoor living. It’s a huge reason why my family and I moved here from Boston a couple years ago (and this past winter made us all the more grateful we did!). In Colorado we have so many sunny days and we love that, but as these spring
