Meet Dave & Eileen McKnelly

Dave and Eileen McKnelly, owners of Made in the Shade of Tallahassee, offer the best window covering products in the industry with exceptional service and affordable prices. One of our advantages is that we bring the showroom to you with our shop-at-home convenience. We personalize our service with a complimentary consultation which allows you to see a beautiful selection of window coverings in your own environment. This shop-at-home experience enables you to view how light, room colors and furnishings affect your options and choices. You will find quality, name-brand window coverings at competitive prices, and every purchase is backed with a manufacturer’s limited lifetime warranty. Our goal is to have completely satisfied customers every time. Let us serve you with the most pleasant window covering shopping experience within the comfort of your own home.

Dave and Eileen love serving the people of Tallahassee in the heart of the “Big Bend.” We’ve been in sales, customer service and relationship management our entire careers and understand that it’s more than just a sale, it’s the beginning of a relationship. Our dream of owning a family based business came true when we connected with a fellow MITS owner and learned of the Made in the Shade family. Made in the Shade’s reputation, passion for quality, custom products and services, along with their very high standards for integrity are in sync with our approach to conducting business-those key elements confirmed Dave and Eileen’s decision to join the team and serve the “Big Bend” in a new and exciting capacity.

Our business model is designed with our complimentary, in-home consultation in mind. We’ll sit down for a few minutes to talk about what you’re interested in seeing, and then bring in the samples so that you can make an informed decision. No matter your product choice, our first goal is to make certain that you are completely comfortable – and educated – with your window covering choices. What sets us apart is that every one of our highly trained, local franchisees are committed to offering you the perfect solution for your windows.

We are proud to stand by our five-point value system, part of our commitment to offer genuine value with every single product we sell:

  • Quality: Every single product we sell is made of top-quality materials by the best and most experienced window covering companies in the world. We sell the best because they make the best.
  • Customization: Just because every window needs to be covered doesn’t mean you should do what everyone else does. Make each window yours – dare to be different. We make it easy!
  • Service: We back up every sale with service. Our goal is to provide stellar care after the sale because every client is a story, and we want your story to be as amazing as your window coverings.
  • Warranty: Everything we sell is covered by our manufacturers’ generous warranties. Most of our products carry a limited lifetime warranty. So, not only will we back up our own sales with service down the road, we also work with our trusted vendor partners who back up everything they manufacture. This is peace of mind like no other.
  • Price: We all know that price doesn’t always equal value, but when we back it up with the best products and the best warranties in the business, we’re offering great value at a great price. Guaranteed.

Our goal is simple: A comfortable shopping experience where you are able to make informed, educated decisions about your window fashion needs.
