Crestron Adds Exclusive Hartmann & Forbes Shade Collection to its Line of Shading Solutions

New assortment of exquisite artisanal shading textiles expands Crestron's custom motorized shades offerings.

Rockleigh, NJ, March 16, 2015 - Crestron today announced it has partnered with Hartmann & Forbes to offer Crestron Shading Solutions in a new assortment of lavish hand-woven textiles.


Exclusively for Crestron dealers

This exclusive collection of hand-woven textiles designed specifically for use with Crestron roller shade systems, are designed for individuals who appreciate the benefit of handcrafted products created by artisans with a meticulous eye for detail. The entire collection features natural fibers sustainably grown and artfully hand loomed. Crafted with pride and infused with a rich sense of tradition, each custom weave brings a natural warmth, elegance, and refinement to any room.

With 40 premium textiles to choose from, the Crestron Hartmann & Forbes collection offers five color stories, from pure white to rich chocolate browns and grays. To provide the looped edge aesthetic for which all Hartmann & Forbes textiles are renowned, each shade is hand-woven to the window dimensions on traditional wooden looms, and can be seamlessly woven up to 180 inches wide.[1] Handcrafted valances are also available in matching or complementary textiles to elegantly conceal the shade motor components. All fabrics are woven to order, so dealers should budget 12-15 weeks for shade delivery.

Ordering

Given the custom nature of these shades, Crestron requires dealers to answer a brief questionnaire and complete an online training course prior to their first purchase.

Live Training

Crestron is offering its dealers live training sessions on March 24th, presented by Hartmann & Forbes, during which they will be introduced to the world of hand-woven textiles and the enrollment process. A Q&A session will be held afterward. Crestron dealers can register online for one of the two time slots âˆ' 11:00AM EST or 4:00PM EST âˆ' or by calling 1-855-53-S-H-A-D-E (537-4233).
