Larry took over ownership of The Shade Shop in 1986 after years of working in the family business that his grandfather founded in 1918. Under his leadership, The Shade Shop drastically expanded its product offerings, purchased and renovated a stunning stand-alone showroom to better serve Houston, and exponentially grew its staff to include the below talent.

We are extremely pleased with the window treatments that were made & installed by the Shade Shop. We did soft, timeless Roman shades and curtains, which are the quality you'd expect in a high-end hotel. Everyone on the staff was responsive and professional, and the quality of both the products and installation was top-notch.
Moving to Houston and into a renovated house, I had a major blind/shutter job on my hands. There are so many companies out there and my goal was to balance quality, aesthetics, and price. I assumed a local shop wouldn’t be competitive with a major chain, but I was (happily!) very wrong. I found exactly the look and quality I wanted, for a reasonable price, and with unbelievable service. Nothing beats being able to take your time to review options, try out swatches at home, and then feel like you’re getting personalized care through the ordering and installation process. I highly recommend that you go straight to the Shade Shop!
As a member of the design community I have depended on The Shade Shop for more than twenty years. Their professionalism and product quality never disappoint.
Highly recommended! The entire process was flawless. Everyone was easy to work with, great products, great installers, and great customer service. There's no other place to go for window treatments. We love our motorized shades. They are beautiful to look at and they work perfectly.
We purchased the motorized roll-up shades for our outdoor patio area. Love, love, LOVE them! We also purchased fantastic quality plantation shutters for our windows. What can I say? I love them as well. VERY HAPPY with both purchases. I would highly recommend "The Shade Shop, Inc." In fact, I just recommended them to our daughter!
Shade Shop is a first class business. We had such a wonderful experience working with the staff from start to finish for our shades. They were very prompt and professional and communicated with us every step of the way. We couldn't be happier with our new shades!!! I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone in the market!!!
Would recommend this team to anyone looking for professional drapery services. They have shown great customer attention and executed the project flawlessly, with excellent quality. Thank you guys!
Wonderful folks work here and are very responsive! Very professional, can't say enough good things about them.
