New Shades for Summer: Hunter Douglas Premieres Vignette and Parkland Wood

Besides introducing the new PowerView Motorization System and Pebble Remote Controls that we raved about last week, Hunter Douglas also shared some other great new products with our window treatment designers at their recent Premieres Event.


“My favorite among the many is the Vignette,” says Diane from the Eden Prairie Hirshfield’s.  “They simplified the style options, it either rolls, stacks or glides. They also updated the fabrics with 5 new options.”

“I was most excited about the Vignette, now offering the tiered style with room darkening fabrics,” says Dawn from Hirshfield’s Shop at Home.  “Also, the new UltraGlide control for the Parkland wood blinds, which will operate like a Silhouette.”

In fact, Hunter Douglas’ wood blinds were a universal hit with the designers.
“I’m excited about the new species of wood that Parkland woods can be manufactured in,” says Beth from the Woodbury Hirshfield’s. “It’s called Abachi, like hibachi, but no h,” she jokes. “It’s lighter weight and textured, from Africa.  The wood can also go through a wire-brushing technique for a more weathered look.”

Premieres is done all over the United States and introduces the dealers to new products, enhancements to products and categories as well as changes and drops to the Hunter Douglas line of products,” says Shannon Scarrella, manager of Hirshfield’s Window Fashions.  “Dealers get to meet with brand managers from many divisions of Hunter Douglas and talk one-on-one.”

You can see the latest Hunter Douglas products at all of our Hirshfield’s locations in Minnesota, Wisconsin, South Dakota, and North Dakota. Talk with the designers about them, they’ll be glad to share the latest information.

We’ve Served Countless Satisfied Customers Over Generations

I have come to rely on the staff at Hirshfield’s Design Resource for their fabulous customer service and variety of products. The service is always friendly, timely and professional.

As a designer, their advice on window treatments is forever appreciated, and they are always able to show me something new in the displays and samples. They provide quick and accurate estimates, measurements and suggestions when I am struggling with a budget. The final product and installation has been nothing but flawless on every project.

I truly value what they continue to bring to our design community!

Want to give a shout out to Madi. Madi took a pretty awful experience and made it right for us. We had ordered cordless blinds and over half of them did not work right or hang right. Madi helped us return all the blinds and reordered a new product for us which we are very happy with. Madi was persistent in helping us get the issues we experience resolved.

She is always so warm and friendly and definitely puts her customers first. Thanks Madi you are a gem! Also want to add that my overall experience with Hirshfield's in St. Cloud has been an excellent experience. They made things right and put their customers first!

Greg is amazing! We have worked with him throughout the years on both existing homes and new builds and we could not be happier. One of the things I appreciate about Greg is that he gets us to really think about how we will use our space, not just now but in the future when the kids get older. This has honestly has saved us from making some pretty big design mistakes. Finding durable fabrics and pieces is important to us while we have a preschooler running around, yet on the other hand, our teens have a different use for the space.

He is able to make it all work together seamlessly by understanding the space and its function. He has a fresh and distinctive feel to his work and builds in a variety of styles. I HIGHLY recommend working with Greg out of the gate, you will not be sorry. I honestly don't know what we do without his help;)
