J.L. Anthony's Svelte line is the first to marry precision-engineered drapery tracks with motor-ready hardware inside slimmer, more contemporary styles of designer drapery rods. The design and admin time savings also allow designers and architects to focus on #HomeAutomation as part of the luxury design aesthetic, not just a use of utilitarian hardware.
Offered to-the-trade only, the line addresses both the red-hot home-automation market and the current demand for modern and minimalist drapery hardware. JLA anticipates that combining the components into easy-to-specify and order systems will make motorized luxury draperies a more accessible design choice.
Motorized hardware that previously had to be hidden in a pocket or valance can now be showcased with a variety of metal looks and wooden finishes. Simple, sleek finial treatments and mitered returns add to the modern design aesthetic.
Svelte installs like any other decorative hardware, and many of the motor systems are plug-n-play. Ordering complete Svelte systems also saves time (using Somfy Glydea motors and one of the 9 available finishes ensures a two-week production time) and trouble ordering tracks and decorative fascia separately. Freight charges, admin and design times are all greatly reduced, as is the potential for errors.
Svelte is available for orders beginning June 30, 2016 and comes in nine finishes with two finial styles and squared mitered-elbow returns. JLA's built-in motor tracks accommodate Lutron, Somfy Glydea or BTX Classic motors and special pricing on the motors also makes the Svelte line easier to purchase as a system.
