I have tried almost all of the Chicology shades on Overstock, and this was another let down for me. Light filtering and does offer privacy, but the horizontal wood running through the shade was not straight like in the photo and did not match up from shade to shade. They looked very much like the paper rice shades I have seen in Chinatown, but I honestly thought this design would be more refined, like in the photo, but I was very wrong. They looked cheap and although i do want texture and love natural materials like the wood, this still could not fit the bill. The cord mechanism kept slipping off the wheel on one of the shades as well so they were returned.
Aside from needing 2 people to install this, it is a decent product for the $

I love the look of these shades, however they don't 'fold' right. You need to manipulate by hand to have them hang straight across. They provide privacy with some light coming through.
