Shade Light Solutions, our residential division, has a history of innovation that spans over 30 years, starting with the establishment of Contexture in 1985. Originally beginning as a full-service window treatment company based out of a garage in Abington, Massachusetts, Contexture’s initial offerings included the cleaning, servicing, and supply of various kinds of blinds, shades, and draperies. Contexture quickly earned a reputation as a one-stop shop to handle all window treatment needs.
From the start, Contexture was focused on providing superior shading solutions, with customer service and quality at the heart of the young company. As technology progressed, Contexture remained conscious of new advances in window treatments. Relationships with a variety of leading brands and vendors allowed the company to provide unbiased advice on a range of commercial projects, while keeping an eye on the latest and greatest in the world of window treatments.
In 2014, Contexture opened its Experience Center showroom in Boston as a resource for developers, contractors, and the A&D community. The Experience Center allows visitors to experience a variety of window treatments firsthand. Before a specified shading solution is implemented into a building, architects/designers, developers, end users, and contractors can learn about the performance differences between fabrics or the functionality and cost benefits of different shade hardware and motors. By enabling construction stakeholders to see, hear, and feel distinct window treatments, Contexture helps clients and customers make more informed decisions.
