The story of Luxaflex®

It’s more than 60 years since Joe Hunter and Henry Sonnenberg launched their business venture; the ‘Hunter Douglas Machinery Corporation’, to develop an innovative casting and production process for lightweight aluminium.

They were planning something very new and very different. A product which would completely change window coverings: Aluminium Venetian Blinds.

The blinds were introduced into Europe in 1951 under the name Luxaflex®, and quickly captured the hearts of many of Europeans due to their exceptional functionality and design. Luxaflex® continued its history of development and innovation into the 21st Century, and became the recognised European market leader. Consistently adding new product lines, and winning many awards for ground breaking inventions such as Duette® Shades and Silhouette® Shades.

Today, Luxaflex® Window Styling offers the most comprehensive portfolio of custom made window covering solutions to beautifully complement any personal style, interior design, and type of window. Furthermore, Luxaflex® offers the widest array of award-winning, innovative lifting systems for easy operation and enhanced child safety. From cordless and retractable manual operating systems, to cord tensioners, wand controls and motorised operating systems.

Innovation yesterday and today

These Venetian Blinds were introduced into Europe in 1951 under the brand name Luxaflex®. Their outstanding design and practical functionality quickly became the ‘must-have’ window covering. Ever since – and right-up to the present day – Luxaflex® has continued introducing new, ground-breaking products like the unique, award-winning Duette® Shades and Silhouette® Shades.
