In 1994, I had just finished a complete renovation and asked Lloyd to do window treatments for the entire house. Since then, he has been back three times to do more work. I would not have anyone but Lloyd and David touch my windows. There have been no change orders, no mistakes and they leave no “footprint” when they leave. The job is always done on time, on budget, and with great professionalism. They have earned my loyalty and so I thank you both.”

I shopped around online when I needed blinds and shades for my South End condo. Lloyd and David’s site impressed me with their breadth of solutions and rave reviews. They responded quickly to my email, brought lots of great samples, and offered expert opinion. I was pleased that they respected my budget and my taste. They did a great installation and gave my place a fresh, up-to-date look. I got a range of products, most of them very affordable, so I can splurge on a couple of fun valances, too — I’m already a repeat customer!”

N. Stohn, Interior Designer,

Lloyd and David have personalized my new home as a timeless and memorable place that I can call my own. My 1928 home needed an immense amount of love, care and attention. In no time at all they were able to transform my home into an extremely inviting place of living. They possess a keen sense of style and design. I feel very lucky to have discovered these two individuals during my search.”

Lloyd and David were so great to select appropriate shades and create window treatments for every single window in our 19th century house. They took extra draperies of ours to make a comforter cover and swags and pillows in our master bedroom and pillows in our family room. They also have a creative eye for interior decorating. Easy to work with, talented and prompt and reasonably priced!!!”

I’ve known Lloyd Staples and David Broderick for many years. They have done work for my home, including not only window treatments and upholstered walls, but also pillows and design ideas. They both have a wonderful, creative, sensitive knack and make wonderful suggestions that cater to individual taste. I continue to use them again and again because of their professionalism, reasonable prices and dedication to getting the job done in an expert and timely fashion. I would recommend Shade Installations to anyone looking for quality window dressings.”
