Summer, Sunshine and Silhouette® Shades

After a long dark winter, we all long for the sun to come streaming through our windows, but sometimes there can be just too much of a good thing. Silhouette® Shades take the harshest sunlight and transforms it into beautiful natural light; all you have to do is tilt the vanes to enjoy more natural daylight. The vanes will diffuse and spread the light evenly throughout the room, filtering out brightness, glare and UV rays.

Luxaflex® Silhouette® Shades are also great when it comes to controlling your privacy – a view to the outside when open during the day and when completely closed in the evenings, you can enjoy your seclusion.

Silhouette® Shades are available in a wide range of beautiful fabrics and sophisticated on-trend colours. Each fabric has its own unique feel – with a choice of new silk looks, subtle linens -all designed to create subtly filtered light.

      

New to the range is: Promenade – a nature inspired fabric design with a soft, casual look, it is available in five soft tone colours.  Ombre – a stylish light dimming fabric designed to subdue light when needed it is available in seven colours.  Bayou – a fresh linen design with a warm look available in three saturated colours. Lumière –  an elegant sheer fabric with a subtle structure it is available in five colours. Éclair – a beautifully textured fabric that subtly plays with light it is available in four colours. French Linen – a linen look fabric with a casual, sophisticated style that compliments every décor, comes in four colours.

There are even special screen fabrics that will reduce the heat coming into the room up to 25% and deflect and dim the sun’s rays. When the vanes are closed, you will also enjoy up to 99% UV protection.

Silhouette® Shades can be operated in many ways from manual to motorised controls. Enjoy the convenience of PowerView® Motorisation and control your blinds from smart phone, tablet or remote. For easy to use manual controls, choose LiteRise® and simply use your finger to gently pull up or pull down your blind or the SmartCord® system uses a retractable cord that keeps you blinds exactly where you position them. All Luxaflex® operating  systems are designed with  child safety in mind.

Soft Fabrics and Effortless Style

New, innovative window dressing

   Pirouette® is a brand-new innovation, there is nothing remotely like it on the market, because Luxaflex®  believes window dressing can and should do much more than simply dress the windows.

The beautiful sheer fabrics softly filter out brightness, glare and UV rays, protecting your furniture and flooring from fading. The soft fabric vanes attached to a sheer backing that appear to be floating, draws natural light into the room. When closed the Luxaflex® Pirouette® Shades are designed to look like a contemporary shade. The construction with a single sheer and soft fabric vanes provides a clear view to the outside. The product design allows for unobstructed view- through, while maintaining a discreet level of privacy inside.

Luxaflex® Pirouette® Shades transform harsh exterior light by diffusing it, spreading it evenly throughout your room, so you can maximise daylight hours and reduce the need for artificial light. Available in fabric opacities, from translucent to room darkening and in a wide range of contemporary colours. The beautiful sheer fabrics also softly filter out brightness, glare and UV rays- protecting furniture and flooring from fading.

We are getting into the long period of daylight which last late into the evening and starts very early in the morning. A wonderful time of the year, but it can be difficult to sleep in a room filled with light. Sleep is as important to our health as eating, drinking and breathing. It allows our bodies to repair themselves and our brains to consolidate our memories and process information.

Poor sleep is linked to physical problems such as a weakened immune system and mental health problems such as anxiety and depression.

Now might be a good time to invest in darkening blinds -some call them black out blinds. To help you get a good night’s sleep Luxaflex® has a developed a beautiful range of room darkening fabrics for your home. And they are very stylish to fit in with your décor be it traditional or contemporary.
