About The Shade Store in Hoboken

Jersey Digs has confirmed that a showroom for The Shade Store is coming to the 1,053-square-foot retail space at 644 Washington Street. The historic brick building was “absolutely gutted” {as Love Island fans would pronounce it} and the formal construction work has officially begun. The Shade Store is no stranger to New Jersey, with the Hoboken location scheduled to be the fourth showroom in the state {other locations include Montclair, Paramus, and Summit}. However, this will be a first for Hudson County.

What The Shade Store Is

Although this store might be a newcomer to Hoboken, it has actually been around since 1946. The Shade Store was created to “provide a simple alternative to a traditionally difficult shopping experience,” according to the store’s website. Today, the store offers customers customized blinds, shades, and drapes to help add a unique, personal touch to anyone’s home. Deeming itself “a wholly curated custom window treatment service,” The Shade Store is an accessible one-stop-shop for all things, well, shades {and blinds + drapes, too}.

How The Shade Store Works

At first glance, the Shade Store sells – what else – shades. But more than that, the brand is looking to share “the definitive custom window treatment experience.” Anyone who has tried {or has had a significant other try to do so} to install window treatments in the likes of the many historic buildings in the area can contest — it’s no easy feat. The Shade Store is committed to making this process better by providing expert guidance, without sacrificing the quality of their customizable shades, blinds, and draperies. In short, they’re here to help.

Hudson County natives can also look forward to sprucing things up with The Shade Store’s unique collaborations. Those familiar with Jonathan Adler will recognize his signature shapes and retro geometrics in some of the roller shades, roman shades, drapery, and more. Just because it’s {almost} winter, doesn’t mean we can’t dream of summer with the Lilly Pulitzer Palm Beach color palette we all know and love. Browse more of their unique collaborations here.

Born and raised in Madison, this authentic Jersey tomato has ripened in Hudson County for the last seven years. As a graduate of Northeastern University’s D'Amore-McKim School of Business, Chloe’s been nerding out over Excel spreadsheets {and stalking you on the internet} since she took her first internship at Efficient Frontier in NYC. Don’t let her college choice fool you, she is a diehard Met’s fan and has the weathered scorebook to prove it. When she’s not dodging armpits and elbows on the PATH, she can usually be found watching Jurassic Park {the original, obviously} for the billionth time, talking to every Jersey City dog she passes, or finishing the last slice of pizza.
