Every September, our team attends the annual CEDIA Expo, which is the common hub where more than 20,000 home technology pros and over 500 exhibitors travel to see the latest and greatest in, as CEDIA puts it, “making smart homes genius!” As we gear up for the Trade Show, it’s an opportunity for us to learn, meet different manufacturers, and to make sure that we bring the right team of vendors and products on-board as we return to our day-to-day design and product specification work. Many products are simply new releases to the existing lineup that we already specify, however, a handful of brands that we team-up with are because of their high-level of design or capabilities to customize solutions for each project.
Many times when building a home, you might find yourself in a situation where it’s difficult to achieve some of the details and technology while keeping to a tasteful design aesthetic. Perhaps you want a TV in a space where you don’t have a wall. Or, you might have minimal wall space if your home is designed with lots of windows, but you have too many “wants” to fit on the available space. Our philosophy is that you should rarely have to pass on making your home just as you dreamt it to be. That is why we partner with the best brands in the business that have full-custom capabilities; two of which are Seura and Leon.

They are offered in endless colors, patterns, and fabrics for both decorative and blackout shades. They can also be installed in a number of different ways depending on the end look that you are trying to achieve. Motorized shades can be hardwired for new construction, or retrofitted wirelessly into your existing home. The icing on the cake is that they can be automated to match your lifestyle and the time of day, whether you’re home or away. Beyond style and convenience, here are three key benefits to installing motorized shades.
