Wave Fold Sheer Curtains with Blockout Blinds

After Rachael and her partner finished building a townhouse near the beach in Rosebud, on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula, she couldn’t wait to bring her dreams of a relaxed coastal interior to life.

Made from timber or aluminium blades, our Venetian Blinds are modern and functional, offering excellent privacy, light control and ventilation. Easy to use, Venetian Blinds allow you to open and close the blades to any position and control the direction of sunlight throughout your room or home.

They can be recessed or face fitted, meaning the Venetian Blinds can be installed inside the window frame or on the architrave bordering the window. In addition, Venetian Blinds can be locked into position at the bottom using a pin and bracket system which makes them suitable for glass doors or windows which are frequently opened and closed.

A great choice to co-ordinate with Curtains, Drapes , and Tiebacks.

The difference in our Venetian Blinds is in the detail. We use a top of the line technically superior hardware system. Perfected by years of extensive research and development, the operating system has been designed for precision. Our Blinds are also designed with extra componentry as standard, at no extra cost, to ensure the most durable and long lasting Venetian Blinds available.

For a step-by-step guide on choosing your Venetian Blinds, call for assistance or visit your nearest store.

Choose your fabrics by borrowing our large full-length samples to compare the fabric weights, transparencies and colours in your own home. Compare your favourite fabric choices at large scale with your paint colours, flooring + furnishing, and view them in different lights. It’s the best way to start.

Cushions are an inexpensive way to give your home a style update. Add a finishing touch to a room through a visually appealing mix of different colours and textures.

Using our extensive range of fabrics, we custom make Cushions to all shapes and sizes, with or without piping, to co-ordinate with your Curtains, Roman Blinds or Bonded Roller Blinds.

We also offer exclusive ranges of decorative trims and fabric buttons to give your Cushions that designer look. Cushion sizes and shapes vary from the typical square or bolster to window seat cushions or Cushions custom made to fit your furniture.

If you do not provide any of the information requested, we may not be able to properly consider your application or make an offer for employment.

To assess and progress your application and administer your ongoing employment, we may disclose the personal information we collect to:

It can be difficult to manage window coverings in commercial buildings. The volume of windows often present in large structures can be easily and quickly managed effectively with our Automate® range and the Pulse Hub. Commercial buildings and businesses can benefit in many ways from a centralised point of control for managing natural light and heat.

Additionally, schedules and triggers can move shades throughout the day based on the position of the sun, creating the perfect interior climate for customers and employees while significantly reducing the time, effort and energy needed to provide a comfortable space.
