The Blind Alley, Custom Drapery and Window Covering Specialists serving Bellevue, Washington and the Greater Seattle area since 1984.


   Today, as consumers continue to search for ways to conserve energy and save money, Hunter Douglas has once again revolutionized window fashions with the Duette Architella Collection – providing the ultimate in energy efficiency and distinctive design. Duette Architella honeycomb shades feature a patented honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb construction. This provides two more air pockets than traditional honeycomb shades and dramatically increases R-values, which measure a product’s ability to keep heat in and cold out.

As a result of the energy crisis in the late 1970s, Hunter Douglas introduced the first energy efficient and fashionable window covering with Duette honeycomb shades. As a leader in the industry, Hunter Douglas continues to bring innovative new solutions into consumers’ homes.
