Iris Apfel + Hunter Douglas

Instantly recognizable for her bold, creative personal style, Iris Apfel is a tastemaker like no other. As an interior designer, she reimagined the White House décor for several Presidents. As a fashion maven, she has been featured at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, in a documentary, and in a trove of best-selling books.

"In your home, lighting is just as important as style."

Iris put it best, and we couldn't agree more: natural light can set a mood, create drama, pull together and transform your living space. With the Hunter Douglas PowerView® Motorization system, you can schedule your shades to automatically adjust throughout the day to create the perfect lighting effects.
