    UPPER SADDLE RIVER, N.J., June 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Sharing the screen
 with Hollywood "it" couple Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn is a daunting
 task, but Hunter Douglas, the leading manufacturer and marketer of custom
 window fashions in North America, was up to the challenge. The company
 provided its popular Provenance(R) woven wood shades for the windows of the
 fabulous Chicago condominium that becomes a point of heated contention
 between the two main characters of the film.
     The Provenance shades are showcased on the set's living room, dining
 room and bedroom windows and enjoy some close-up camera time when Vince
 Vaughn's character raises the shade to watch Jennifer Aniston's character
 leave the condo with a new man. Aniston's character is an art dealer with
 an on-trend decorative flair, favoring oversized furniture and rich brown
 and olive colors.
     The living room windows, highly visible throughout the film, feature
 Provenance shades in Tahiti, a fabric that combines reeds of varying earth
 tones with twisted grasses for a natural elegance, in the Black Pearl
 color. The dining room and bedroom, both locations of memorable scenes,
 feature Provenance shades in Enchant, a simple, stylish reed fabric, in the
 Black Magic color. Another Hunter Douglas product, Country Woods(R) wood
 blinds, was used in the kitchen.
     The Universal Pictures film brought in $39 million its opening weekend.
 Two-thirds of the film's audience, according to Universal exit polling, is
 women, and half of the audience is over the age of 30, placing "The
 Break-Up" viewers squarely within Hunter Douglas' target demographic.
 Hunter Douglas receives a special mention during the film's end credits.
