Dadeland Mall Project: Hugo Boss Motorized Shades

Brown Design just completed an installation for the new Hugo Boss showroom in the recently constructed wing at Dadeland Mall in Miami.  Custom vinyl lettering, which included the Hugo Boss logo, was attached to the black vinyl roller shade for display in the front window.  Using a Somfy motor, the shades were motorized for easy operation using a radio frequency wall switch installed discretely on the wall.  We look forward to installing a similar motorized shade system in the showroom window of their sister store that is also in Dadeland Mall Miami.  Brown Design is proud to serve our commercial clients, as well as continuing our service to the residents of Downtown Miami, Sunny Isles, Aventura and the surrounding South Florida areas!  We also specialize in custom curtains and Roman shades, offering countless fabric choices to suit your window treatment needs!

Somfy Motorized Shades in Miami, FL

Window treatments are a great product to integrate with your home automation system.  In Miami, with the bright sun moving across the sky during the day, your solar shades and blackout shades can be programmed to act in synchronicity!  Using light sensors in tandem with your motorized shades, can allow for the automatic raising of a solar shade when the light source is too low.  There are several applications and software programs that can be used with the Somfy RTS Universal Interface.  If you live here in Miami or Miami Beach, we can send a representative to see what solar shade or blackout shade solution will work for you.  We also serve the Key Biscayne area for motorized shades and all other window treatments.  Brown Design had been installing blinds in the Miami area for over 10 years, and we are licensed and insured.

Downtown Miami Blinds and Shades

The condos are filling up in Downtown Miami and the surrounding South Florida areas.  Brown Design is staying busy installing blinds and shades in all of the newly owned windows!  The great thing about roller shades is that you can roll them up(or push a button if you have motorized shades!), and they are completely out of the way for you to enjoy the view!  Side channels work great with blackout shades if you are one of those Miami people who like complete darkness without light gaps on the sides of the roller shades.  Lots of people in Miami Beach just leave their solar shades down all the time because they stop heat and glare while maintaining the view.  Whichever product you are looking for to finish your windows, Brown Design can install them professionally with out 100% guarantee!  We are licensed and insured to handle any size project in the South Florida area.

Miami Motorized Shades

Turn off the sun with a click of a button!!!  Motorized shades are great for large window areas or places that are unreachable manually.  They area also quite simply fun to use!!!  At Brown Design we have installed hundreds of motorized blackout and solar shades around Miami and the South Florida area.  We use the Somfy line of motors which is know world-wide as the industry leader for quality and noise control.  All of our Somfy motors come with a 5 year manufacturer warranty.  We can also motorize other products such as Roman shades and cellullar (honeycomb) shades.  If you live in Miami, you may have seen our installations in the Brickell Area restaurant Zuma, or just around the corner at Eastern National Bank.  We have also installed hundreds of motorized shade systems in Miami Beach condos, where glass walls facing the ocean can really amplify the sun.  We also take care of all the wiring with our in-house licensed electrician, which saves money versus the alternative of hiring an outside electrical company!

Custom Banded Curtains

If you can’t find that perfect fabric for your curtains, why not design your own?!  Our seamstresses can combine several fabrics to make banding of any size so you can achieve the exact look you want.  Our standard two-tone look usually constitutes a light neutral tone fabric for the top two-thirds of the curtain, while using a nice popping color for the lower one-third.  another alternative is vertical banding on the leading edges of the curtains(for a pair that would mean where the two panels meet-from top to bottom.  We like to use a 4 or 5 inch banding for this style.  We have been recently fabricating and installing a lot of banded curtains in Miami lately and the finished product has been fabulous!  This picture shows a gorgeous triple-toned curtain designed by Mary Azar over at Fine Line Furniture in Coral Gables.  Check out their website here:

Blackout Shades Miami

Not surprisingly, one of the most requested products that we sell here at Brown Design is blackout roller shades. The morning sun in Miami can be brutal, especially if you live on the beach! We offer several different fabrics to use with our shades, as well as side channels and fascia covers which go the extra mile blocking out light on the sides and top of our shades(see picture of our great way of dealing with blacking out corners!). Not only do they block light, but blackout roller shades also act as a great insulator against heat, saving you money on your electrical bill every month. It makes a nice afternoon nap even that more relaxing when you can just lay down in the bed, hit the remote control, and have our super quiet Somfy motors put the shades down for you!!! So call us in Miami or send us a request via the website link if you would like to set up a free estimate for blackout roller shades!
