Since 2017, Takoy Windows by Design has been Meridian’s full-service Hunter Douglas dealer, and our team has decades of experience in the window treatment industry. We’ve seen trends come and go—but one timeless style has been gaining popularity over the past several seasons and doesn’t look like it’s going away any time soon is bringing the look of natural materials indoors with wood or fiber accents.
Natural materials like wood, glass, stone, and woven fibers add grounding to a space and tie your indoors together with the outdoors. In 2022, people are looking for more authentic ways of life and environments—and this reflects through the items with which they decorate their homes from their groceries to their accessories to their window treatment systems.
Young people starting new households and retirees alike are looking for quality items that will last, not mass-manufactured products that look and feel cheap. Real natural materials look and feel authentic—they have a weft of weight and a natural luster that is artisan in nature and hard to replicate with synthetic materials.
Most important is sustainability—with climate change occurring all around us, people look for ways to connect with nature, especially if they live in a city environment. This includes buying record numbers of houseplants and shopping with a focus on purchasing ethically. Our buying habits affect our moods, from toothpaste to organic vegetables to bamboo blinds. Buying sustainably makes us happier, lowers stress, and improves focus.
One key feature people love about natural materials is that each piece is unique and carries the characteristics of the material and its weaving process. Accessories and furnishings that tell a story add character and contrast to other minimalist elements as well—combining pieces from multiple eras helps to create a dynamic, curated look.For example, the Hunter Douglas Alustra® Collection of Woven Textures® offers a wide selection of unique natural fibers with textures from raw silk to nubby woven reeds.
The Hunter Douglas Alustra® Collection of Woven Textures® comes in roller shades, Roman shades, and vertical Alustra® Skyline® Gliding Window Panels in a variety of fabrications and color stories. At Takoy Windows by Design, our team of designers will help you decide which options will work with your design plan or existing furnishings to help you bring the outdoors in or add vibrancy and textural contrast to your space. Consider our 100% hardwood shutters and blinds or choose a botanical fabric from the Hunter Douglas Design Studio™ to add some arboreal style to your interior!
