Our wood Venetian blinds are acclaimed all over Europe as being the best, made from Obeche- almost the lightest weight timber in the world! Obeche is used in sauna and boat construction as it is incredibly stable and good in wet/hot/humid conditions. It has a beautiful grain and is available in a choice of 50+ stains and paint finishes. The wood is air-dried for up to 2 years in Valencia before manufacture, and is marketed under the brand name ‘Luxmader’. Most ‘designer label’ wood blinds are made from Basswood, but we reserve that for our budget range called ‘Sunwood’.
