  • Motorised Wooden Blinds - A Design Classic in the Making

    Posted on 18th May 2010 by Lee.

    The Wooden Venetian blind has long been thought of as a 'design classic'; simple, stylish and chic. We all love the harmonious natural qualities of real wood and the Controliss automatic remote control adds a luxurious twist to everyday operation. Wooden blinds have undergone some exciting transitions in recent years with the introduction of striking, vibrant timber designs and exotic textured slat finishes. Gone are the days blinds were viewed as only functional window coverings. A real wooden blind is as important as your favorite piece of furniture and every bit as pleasing. Now with integrated silky smooth motor you can enjoy the natural beauty of real wood with affordable remote control operation.

  • Blinds Trends - Pantone® Turquoise Colour of the Year 2010

    Posted on 17th May 2010 by Lee.

    Add a splash of the tropics to your window with Turquoise Controliss Vertical and Venetian blinds.

    “In many cultures, Turquoise occupies a very special position in the world of colour,” explains Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Colour Institute®. “It is believed to be a protective talisman, a colour of deep compassion and healing, and a colour of faith and truth, inspired by water and sky. Through years of colour word-association studies, we also find that Turquoise represents an escape to many – taking them to a tropical paradise that is pleasant and inviting, even if only a fantasy.” Whether envisioned as a tranquil ocean surrounding a tropical island or a protective stone warding off evil spirits, Turquoise is a colour that most people respond to positively. It is universally flattering, has appeal for men and women, and translates easily to fashion and interiors. With both warm and cool undertones, Turquoise pairs nicely with any other color in the spectrum. Turquoise adds a splash of excitement to neutrals and browns, complements reds and pinks, creates a classic maritime look with deep blues, livens up all other greens, and is especially trend-setting with yellow-greens. A Turquoise remote control blind adds an evocative, spa-like hue with an undertone of warmth and excitement that looks great in bathrooms, en-suites and kitchens.

    Posted on 13th May 2010 by Lee.

    The evolution of the Controliss blind now means everyone can enjoy the benefits of affordable remote operation in battery operated motorised blind that is quick and convenient to install. Gone are the days when the installation of remote control blinds required qualified electricians running cables up and down interior walls causing massive disruption to decoration. Controliss wireless remote control blinds are powered by everyday batteries that are discretely located: there is no need to run cables to a power supply. The reality is our blinds are as easy to install as any basic blind.
