Nautical Inspiration

Nautical Treatment by CHF/ Sue Fresconi/Shady Characters
 What a fabulous treatment by Sue Fresconi and the CHF Academy displayed at the recent Vision '11 Expo in Las Vegas!  This creative treatment features Finestra medallions with hand painted nautical flags at the top of the interior awning.  A diagonal striped shade peeks through the rope-lined leading edge as if a sail boat were passing by.  Ahhh...can you feel the salty breeze whisk by and the sound of waves lapping at the shore?!

Nautical Flag Alphabet
Since this display sailed and docked at the Vision Expo, the hand painted flags spell out "V.I.S.I.O.N".  Spelling a name or word out onto a "nautical canvas" is made easy when using the Nautical Alphabet.  Burgees can also be painted to correspond with any yacht club.

Nautical themed product from Finestra
The medallions chosen for the treatment were manufactured with a screw only coming out of the back of the piece 1 1/4" so that it could be screwed directly into the top of the awning.  These are custom features that Finestra can provide to aid creative designers and fabricators like Sue Fresconi.

The textures, patterns, and colors of this treatment and their ability to paint a nautical picture are truly inspirational!
