Window treatment questions have always been high on the list for millions of my television viewers, online visitors and readers of my interior design books
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 27, 2009
With American families belt-tightening in this economic crisis, award-winning designer Christopher Lowell and Smith+Noble, a national leader and pioneer in custom window fashions, announced that they have entered into a new partnership to create a collection of window coverings and coordinated accent pieces that can give any home a dramatically new look - on a relatively modest budget. For most Americans, their home is their single biggest investment. With few families able to sell their homes and trade up in this down real estate market, Christopher Lowell and Smith+Noble offer smart strategies for turning your current home into your dream home with new window treatments that can transform the look of a room for a lower price than almost any other remodeling project.
EMMY Award Winning Designer, Fine Living Network TV Star & Best-Selling Author Christopher Lowell has built a reputation that is second to none for educating people and helping take the guesswork out of interior design. In essence, he teaches you how to become your own designer - a valuable skill in this new economy. In partnership with Smith+Noble, Christopher Lowell has created quick and easy solutions to homeowners' most common challenges. His new collection, featuring personally pre-coordinated offerings, is divided into four lifestyles --Town, Country, City and Shore -- that offer foolproof material and style combination guaranteed to achieve designer-quality results in any room. Each is created to be timeless and classic - defying the fads.
Each of these four lifestyles covers a world of design influences from global destinations visited by Christopher Lowell. For example, the Shore lifestyle collections are reminiscent of Americana and can bring to mind locations such as Maine and Nantucket. While in another instance, Shore can evoke a seaside European destination such as Capri in Italy or an Asian influence inspired by Hong Kong's Victoria Harbor in China.
Like your personal designer, Christopher Lowell himself has carefully chosen over 100 fine fabrics for shades and drapery, woven wood shades made of sustainable, renewable and all-natural bamboos, reed and grasses, as well as solar and honeycomb shades that offer superb energy savings. All of the materials are selected to ensure that they are luxurious enough for "her" yet tailored enough for "him" -- a vital distinction when all family members have to unite behind one design concept and feel comfortable with the design choices in their home.
"Window treatment questions have always been high on the list for millions of my television viewers, online visitors and readers of my interior design books," explains Christopher Lowell. "I'm delighted that now I get to work directly with you through one of my favorite sources, Smith+Noble. Their treatments have adorned the windows and walls of many of my television make-overs prompting an avalanche of inquiries. So it was only natural that one day we'd join forces to offer you the very best in quality window treatments along with expert interior design advice."
As Christopher sums it up, "How easy is that? You simply can't make a mistake!"
This empowering approach is an ideal fit for Smith+Noble, who since 1987 has custom-crafted over 8 million window treatments for fine homes and discerning homeowners across America. Says Smith+Noble Vice President of Marketing Matt Smith, "Christopher Lowell's philosophy of decorating, plus his commitment to uncompromising quality and enduring style, mirrors our own. That's why we are so pleased with this partnership - the first of its kind that Smith+Noble has ever entered into - and why we're so confident of this exciting venture's success."
