HARTMANN & FORBES
These shades are some of the best in the country, and we love to work with their team, who knows exactly where all their fibers are sourced from, who hand-weave your window treatments on a loom, customizing every single aspect so you have made-to-measure, perfect shades all the time. Motorized or manual, shades play an important role in your home and we partner with producers like Hartmann & Forbes to deliver the ultimate in luxury window design.
For 25 years, Hartmann & Forbes has delighted the design community by handcrafting the industry’s most diverse selection of bespoke, natural window and wall coverings. Using only sustainable fibers, woven by hand, on traditional wooden looms, Hartmann & Forbes offers a truly custom product in seamless widths up to 180.
In this time-honored, one-of-one method, Hartmann & Forbes’ artisans hand weave each shade on traditional wooden looms to a window’s dimensions. This painstaking technique comes with a longer lead time but delivers an exquisite loom-finished edge on shades up to 180” wide, without seams. Each shade is then hand finished to the most exacting standards, with the highest-quality components, in their Pacific Northwest facility.
Hartmann & Forbes begins the process of creating luxury woven products by choosing only the finest sustainable fibers, each rapidly-renewable and grown in well-managed ecosystems. Every strand is hand selected for subtle variations of color and texture.
NATURAL WALL COVERINGS
The presence of light and shade on a wall should always enhance your natural surroundings. Hartmann & Forbes’ collection of authentic grasscloth surface materials is created from rapidly-renewable fibers such as abaca, sisal, ramie and jute. Each textile is woven and finished by hand before being carefully backed and trimmed.
Christopher William NYC, a home technology integration partner, can help solve the challenge of automating your Hartmann & Forbes window coverings. Both wired-in and battery operation methods are possible, and you can rely on their expertise to help select the right site-specific option.
