The Shade Store expands its collection with Alexa Hampton

Iconic Interior Designer hones her expertise in classical design for an assortment of fabrics for  custom Drapery, Roman Shades, Cornices and Pillows.  

Port Chester, NY (July 2023) – The Shade Store, the leading brand for premium custom window  treatments, announces the expansion of the Alexa Hampton for The Shade Store exclusive  designer collection.  

“As a longtime lover of classical design, I wanted this collection to be a fresh take on traditional  patterns and techniques,” explains Hampton. “It’s all about movement and conveying light with  designs that bridge the gap between the past and the present. This watery color palette has always  spoken to me.”  

In designing this new collection, Alexa drew inspiration from her love of traditional motifs with an  emphasis on embroidered fabrics. The bold designs are larger in scale, leading to a more modern  aesthetic. The color palette of tonal blues, greens, ivories and greys softens the materials and fits  into a wide range of spaces.  

“Alexa has a distinct eye for design and as we continue to see our customers gravitate towards  more color, pattern and texture in their homes, we knew that Alexa was just the person to help us  deliver a collection that felt new and exciting, and that we knew our customers will love, “explains Ian Gibbs, Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer of The Shade Store. 

“I love the versatility of this collection,” Hampton adds. “These fabrics can be beautiful as long,  billowing curtain panels or for sumptuous Roman Shades.”  

The Alexa Hampton for The Shade Store collection includes the following styles, described here by  the designer: 

Cloud Chain: “Cloud chain is evocative of a seventies pop art pattern that, as a child of the  seventies, beguile me. It is fun and playful.” 

Roman Fret: “This minimized and abstracted Greek key is architectural and foundational in  feeling.” 

Baluster: “I love how this pattern combines embroidery and printed pattern in a single gesture  that combines to create depth for an otherwise subtle design.”

Leaf Frame: “Part crown of laurels and part arabesque, this undulating leaf pattern speaks to  nature, while maintaining a sense of the urbane.“
