Roman shades are vertical window coverings that combine some of the characteristics of curtains with some of the characteristics of venetian blinds. Like curtains, Roman shades typically feature fabric or cloth as a material (although manufacturers sometimes use other materials). Like venetian blinds, the individual sections of these window coverings overlap or stack together when in their open position.

Classic: This version of a traditional flat roman shade has concealed support rods at every pleat to fold neater and lie flatter than other flat shades. Classic Roman shades work well with most fabrics. This shade style is highly recommended for fabrics with a pattern.
Soft Fold: Fuller in body, this style keeps its soft folds even when lowered. Support rods are concealed in the pockets at the back of each fold. These shades work best with solid or textured fabrics. Not recommended for fabrics with a pattern that will be interrupted by the folds.
Batten Back: Doweled pockets on the back of the shade hold support rods and form decorative seams on the front of the shade. These shades work best with solid or textured fabrics.
