I was looking for a custom fabric shade structure and after getting the runaround along with some rather expensive quotes, I found that Designs For Shade had exactly what I was looking for. I couldn’t believe how many products and options they had to offer.
The amazing thing is the structure was already pre-engineered and the buying process was a breeze.
