They’re A Sheer Delight for Windows
Our NEW Allusion window blinds are the latest innovation in window coverings – combining sheer curtains and vertical blinds.
We’re a nation that once LOVED net curtains at windows, and everything comes back in fashion (so the saying goes). So here is a new sophisticated update for windows, a sheer window covering that combines the best of sheer curtains and vertical blinds. They’re a 21st-century version of the once hugely popular net curtain if you like!
The new Allusion blinds from Apollo Blinds feature vertical vanes in a soft, silky voile material that are suspended from a top rail.
The delicate fabric drapes beautifully, holding its shape to give the illusion of curtain folds, but as the fabric is hung in individual vertical vanes, you can pass through them for easy access to doors.
Our design director Matt Thomas explains: “Just like their net curtain predecessors, Allusion blinds are made from sheer fabric that provides a veil of privacy but still allows maximum light into a room.
“They’re a brilliant solution for dressing large windows as well as patio, bifold and trifold doors. They can be motorised and operated by remote control or by a neat wand.
“Because each vane hangs separately (i.e. not linked together by a bottom chain or rail), homeowners can pass through the blind at any point without having to ‘open’ the blinds. The louvres can be rotated for variable light control.
“Homeowners can also throw open the doors without flies and wasps entering the home. And there’s good news for allergy-sufferers too, as Allusion blinds let fresh air circulate while blocking much of the pollen and dust particles that aggravate symptoms of hay-fever and asthma.
“A final benefit is that they also stop nosy neighbours and potential burglars from getting a good view into homes.”
New Allusion blinds come in two colours Snow (white) and Pewter (charcoal), with a choice of a colour co-ordinating fascia (or Vista headrail) and the option to motorise.
