We visited Ireland this week which is where one of our main suppliers is based. We had a fantastic two days over there. The purpose of the visit was to be shown the new roller and vertical collections that are being released in January 2016 along with other new products that they will be launching very soon! I can’t wait to upload them all onto the website as soon as they become available, I’m sure you will love it just as much as I do!
First of all there are a few new sunwoods that have been released which I think are going to do very well with the current trends. A new Pure Gloss is available – plain Pure was only launched last year but it is the first time we have had a really bright white and as you can imagine has sold very well indeed. It is only when you put the ‘Pure’ colour next to the ‘Polar’ that you realise the difference in brightness. So the fact that this colour is now available in a gloss is brilliant. I do think that this is going to be a big seller as the combination of the gloss and brightest white give the ultimate pristine feel. There is also a new grey wood that I fell in love with straight away it was truly beautiful and I just hope that they stock up on this Sunwood because it is bang on current trends and going to work perfectly in modern homes.
New Vertical Blinds.
As you will know, on the website we have a ‘Splash’ range which is a reasonably priced range available in the roller and vertical blind section, and I am pleased to tell you that they are adding more colours and keeping the prices as they are - I was so happy to learn this. There is also then a ‘Vitra’ range which currently has 15 colours in and they are adding even more into this range too. The Vitra range is also available in roller and vertical blinds and Decora adding pastel colours to the selection are going to be good and ready for the spring rush of florals and corals.
New Roller Blinds.
The Vitra and the Splash colours as mentioned above are available in the roller range which is brilliant if you are looking for a reasonably priced roller blind in your home without cutting back on the beautiful colours available. In the last Fabric box book there were a lot of wow and bold materials which at the time I was very excited about and couldn’t wait to launch, however, looking back now they are not as sellable as we had once thought even though they are gorgeous. New collections are always trial and error though and Decora have picked up on this. The new materials now are truly beautiful and will work in any modern or traditional home which are the types of versatile materials that we want to add to our collection.
Soft Shade Duo Roller Blind.
This is a completely brand new range and will be added to the website as soon as possible. There have been a few companies that have started to create this blind and even though they are lovely and practical at the window, we don’t feel the prices have been quite right just yet. But with the new soft shade duo roller it is just what we are looking for - affordable without cutting back on the quality and the style of the blind. We will also be able to manufacture this blind on site, keeping both the cost and the lead time down for our customers. So watch this space for this new product to become available.
