The Luxaflex® Story

The Art of Window Styling

It’s more than 70 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 that would completely change window coverings: Aluminium Venetian Blinds.

Introduction Venetian Blinds Introduction Venetian Blinds


As consumers experienced the exceptional benefits of flexible light control, privacy, and comfort, demand for our distinctive Aluminium Venetian Blinds quickly grew. This enabled us to expand our business in the 1950s to Britain, France, and the Netherlands.

In Europe, we launched our Venetian Blinds under the name-brand name “Luxaflex®”. With their unique design, our custom-made Venetian Blinds quickly captured the hearts of consumers due to their exceptional style, functionality, and quality.
