Woven wood shades or matchstick shades can be perfect for every room in the house. These attractive shades are versatile and pleasing to the eye. The weave can be customized to fit your personal needs. Loose weaves (open weave) allow light filtration and the tighter weaves are made for blocking light or “blackout” purposes (privacy weave). Matchstick shades will cover any window size and you can raise and lower them in one smooth motion.
