We Love What We Do!
Beyond Shades was started by Rachel Gregersen, who has over 20 years of experience in the Interior Fashions Business. Rachel’s successful career in window fashions started after finishing college in the 90s.
She spent the last dozen years at the executive level as the business leader of the window treatment division of a major shop-at-home company. Under her leadership, the division grew from two cities to over 40, servicing over 80% of the continental United States. Her knowledge, experience, and passion for window coverings and home fashions is evident in the top notch service she insists that all clients receive. She believes that every customer is a VIP and should be treated as such.
At Beyond Shades we LOVE what we do. We love interior fashions, home decor, interior design, paint, wallpaper, fabrics and especially window coverings and drapery. We have a true passion for it. Our team will work with you at your own pace and in your own space. Every installer we use is certified in one or more major brands. This means that they have completed and maintained the credentials necessary to properly measure and install your order. All of our installers have at least 10 years experience installing window treatments in the Chicago, Indiana, and Wisconsin areas.
We are a full service custom window coverings, shutter and drapery company with experienced and talented design consultants and certified installers. We work exclusively with quality brands names. Our long term relationships with our suppliers has proven to us that they are brands that stand behind their products.
Rachel lives in Elmhurst with her husband and two children. When she is not busy at work with Beyond Shades, she is enjoying her family, traveling, photography, and supporting various causes, mostly through volunteering. She and her husband are licensed foster parents for the state of Illinois and help with children at risk or in need whenever possible.
We look forward to meeting and working with you on your next project.
The Beyond Shades Team!
