The temperature in the living room of our modest mid-century duplex gets very high during summer afternoons because of direct sunlight on the porch. I decided to create a triangular shade that would catch the worst of the rays without obscuring the views from inside.
The fabric is parachute material that I purchased from a military surplus store. It is very lightweight and yet with its unique weave is indestructable. It can’t be torn!
