About EcoSmart Shades
We’re a small, family-owned company.
We’re not the biggest window shade manufacturer… just the best! We’re a small, family-owned (second generation!) company with a serious commitment to extraordinary service and manufacturing excellence. We build by hand, we treat you like family, and we stand behind everything we do.
We’ve been handcrafting our premium cellular and roller shades for over 30 years.
Talk about perfecting our craft. We were among the first producers of honeycomb shades, and we’ve been constantly improving our methods and materials ever since. This is all we do, and we strive to do it better than anyone else!
We’re in the beautiful state of Vermont, USA.
Yes, Vermont truly is beautiful. But it also gets brutally cold. What better place to start a window covering company? From the beginning, we made it our mission to produce gorgeous double-cell shades that offer phenomenal insulation. Our neighbors sure appreciated it, and now you can, too!
Maybe you have!
Perhaps you’ve heard of…
- Gordon’s Window Decor: That’s us! Gordon’s Window Decor is our company, and it was founded in Vermont over 30 years ago. We provide full-service consultation, design, shade manufacturing, installation, and the full gamut of window covering solutions here in our beautiful home state. We also ‘cover’ the world in premium, custom, cellular and roller shades through our eCommerce websites (below).
- SymphonyShades.com: From the beginning, our gorgeous, premium-quality, insulating cellular shades have carried the brand name “Symphony Shades”. As word of our quality spread and the Internet was becoming a thing (yes, it was that long ago!), we had to help people around the world find us. That’s when SymphonyShades.com was born!
- CellularWindowShades.com: But wait! What about all those people who deserve to have our custom-made, insulating beauties in their windows, but they’ve never heard of Symphony Shades? Well, they’ll probably search for cellular window shades, so let’s help them find the very best! Yup, that was the thinking that lead to CellularWindowShades.com.
So how does EcoSmartShades.com fit in to all of this? Well, truth be told, we decided some time ago that our shades needed a name change – to better reflect the value that we offer. Yes, our shades are beautiful, and they are incredibly functional. But what our cellular shades do better than virtually any window covering is insulate your home.
When you sell amazing shades that pay for themselves through energy savings, the name should indicate that, right? And thus, our shades became EcoSmart Shades! We made the transformation here in Vermont quite a while ago, and it was a smashing success. Now we’re taking the name change global. These are the same phenomenal Symphony Shades, handcrafted to precision in the same Vermont facility by the same caring people, but with a name that fits as well as our shades do. EcoSmart Shades!
OK, that might be overstating things a bit. But we truly are one of a kind! Look, there are plenty of mass-producing shade manufacturers, often with overseas manufacturing facilities and budget components. That is not us, and it never will be. There are also one or two shade companies that produce what we consider to be similar quality, but their shades cost 50% to 300% more. Yikes! And once upon a time, there were other small USA shade manufacturers like us, but most – if not all – have been swallowed up by the giant conglomerates. We stand alone as a small USA shade company that handcrafts highest-quality shades and sells them at factory-direct prices. We are unique among shade builders, and proud of it!
So what do you get with EcoSmart Shades?
- Handcrafted perfection: It all started decades ago with one guy in a garage who believed in the utmost importance of quality and service. Continuing the tradition to this day, we assemble and inspect each shade individually by hand, assuring exceptional quality in every shade we make.
- Superior components: Just like in gourmet cooking, the ingredients matter. Sure, we could import inexpensive shade components from overseas and slap together something that might look like a decent window shade. But would we want to put our name on that? No way! Our structural and operating components are produced right “next door” in upstate New York, and they are built to last. Our bonded fabrics, which we acquire from multiple sources, are carefully selected to provide the ultimate combination of durability, outstanding insulation, dust and stain resistance, and easy cleaning. As a result, you get shades that look amazing and function flawlessly for years.
- Factory-direct pricing: This one is pretty straightforward. We build the shades, then we sell them directly to you. You’re not buying from a retailer who also needs to get his “piece of the pie”. No middleman, no unnecessary markup, no inflated prices. Just fantastic shades at affordable prices.
- Unmatched expertise: So you have a tricky question, huh? No problem! If your friendly customer service rep doesn’t have the solution right at his or her fingertips, it’s just a matter of walking to another area of the building to get the fast, accurate answer you’re looking for – right from the source. Whether it relates to measuring, design, production, installation, shipping, or repair, the solution resides here in our Vermont facility, and it’s readily available to you.
- Truly personal service: It’s easy to say we treat you like family… that we sincerely care about you… that we’re always willing to go “above and beyond” to make sure your needs are met. Many companies say that. What brings us tremendous joy is showing people that, in our case, it’s actually true… and then listening to the reaction. In fact, it’s the very best part of our day! Experience our personal service for yourself. Give us a call, and let’s chat!
- Peace of mind: With our world-class products, the best warranty in the industry, and friendly, knowledgeable shade experts here to guide you every step of the way, you can just… relax. We’ve got you “covered”.
- Unparalleled value: This is it. This is what we strive for, and what we feel we achieve. We are driven to provide the very best value in window shades – the combination of phenomenal style, functionality, durability, insulation, easy care, and reassuring warranty that can’t be found elsewhere at a similar price point. This is why we produce such high-end cellular and roller shades, and yet offer them to you at manufacturer-direct pricing. You deserve the greatest possible value with your purchase, and we’re thrilled to be able to provide it!
