This is our dog Fendi in our home back in 2001. He was 2 years old when this photo was used in a National advertising campaign for Phifer Sheerweave Solar Shades. The full page color ad was used for many many years in National magazines and on huge walls at Window Coverings trade shows.
Since this photo was taken, Solar Shades (or Sun Shades as many call them) have become a best selling window treatment. Here in St. Augustine, so many of us have beautiful water or marsh views we do not want to block out. Solar Shades provide a beautiful, easy and affordable window covering that blocks the harsh heat and glare of the sun, while allowing the view to be seen. The fabric can be made into very large shades, for both interior and exterior applications. It can also be made into Sliding Panels, which are a relatively new window covering option that is very popular. We offer motorization on Solar Shades both inside and outside.
On Friday, Feb 20th, we will be celebrating Fendi’s 16th birthday. Although he can no longer jump up on the couch, he enjoys relaxing at home, usually by a window. His modeling career is over, but he is enjoying his retirement! We however enjoy helping all the great folks in St. Augustine find the perfect window treatment for their homes!
