A New and Unique Solution for Conservatory Blinds Exclusively from Laura Ashley by Thomas Sanderson

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - March 29, 2011) - Laura Ashley and Thomas Sanderson are delighted to announce the launch of a truly unique collection of conservatory blinds, representing a major step forward in conservatory blinds design and technology.

By combining the latest technology in blinds systems with exquisite Laura Ashley patterns and colours, Thomas Sanderson have created a solution for conservatory owners that promises to transform the conservatory experience and set completely new standards in the industry on conservatory blinds functionality and style.

With the launch of the Laura Ashley Conservatory Blinds Collection, Thomas Sanderson have married their exclusive technology with a range of exquisite Laura Ashley patterns and colours. For the first time ever, blinds featuring distinctive Laura Ashley designs can be incorporated within the conservatory to provide a stunning backdrop, with patterns used to create high impact feature walls, whilst matching or contrasting blinds in the Laura Ashley colours allow individuals to mix and match according to their own style preferences.

Pleated blinds have always provided the very highest level of functionality in the conservatory, with fabric technology that retains heat in winter and keeps it out in the summer. Each blind in the Laura Ashley range is individually designed to be as functional as it is stylish, fitting neatly into every window, roof panel or door of the conservatory – no matter what the shape, size or angle. At their UK factory, Thomas Sanderson handcraft each and every blind, using unique fitting systems that respect and protect the distinctive architecture of the conservatory, together with integrated power systems that give users optimum control over their conservatory environment.

The Laura Ashley Conservatory Blinds collection includes 21 new matching and contrasting options, with three distinctive Laura Ashley patterns and plain blinds available in seven exclusive Laura Ashley colours, offering customers the ultimate inspiration and flexibility to create their own distinct look and style in the conservatory.

Taking another exciting step forwards in blinds technology, the Twinshade system has been exclusively developed by Thomas Sanderson, allowing two different fabrics to be operated within one blind so that the conservatory look and feel can be transformed instantly. Available with the new Laura Ashley Conservatory Blinds Collection, this Twinshade option means that customers can combine the collection's complementary patterns and colours for an infinite range of options in one single installation.

Free home presentations from Thomas Sanderson designers ensure that each customer finds the perfect combination of technology and design for their personal conservatory preferences. Design and styling options include:
  • Choosing feature walls to add depth and character for a stylish focal point, alternatively using patterns on smaller windows to add subtle depth to the room - perfect for accentuating furnishings and other decorative accessories.

  • Mix and match the complementary colours from the Laura Ashley fabric collection, creating a mixture of coordinating and contrasting shades to add a real sense of drama to your space. Mixing plain and patterned fabrics to deliver a clever style twist and add a wow factor to your home.

  • For a classic look choose one gorgeous Laura Ashley patterned fabric throughout your entire conservatory, creating a fresh, stylish interior which provides a light and airy feel.

  • Thomas Sanderson's unique Twinshade blinds system allows the combination of two different fabrics in one blind. At the touch of a button, the colour and style of the conservatory can be transformed, giving you a totally new look for a special occasion or across the seasons.

Laura Ashley and Thomas Sanderson have collaborated to bring this unique collection to the market, combining their strengths in design and technology to create the most beautiful and the most advanced blinds solution for conservatory owners throughout the UK and Ireland.

The new collection will be available from April 2011.
