Why choose Luxaflex® Duette® Shades?

The ultimate blind for temperature control

If you are looking for the ultimate blind in temperature control opt for Luxaflex Duette® Shades, the premier brand of ‘honeycomb’ or ‘cellular’ shades. Their insulating properties are due to their unique honeycomb design of two or more layers (3 layers for the Duette® Architella® range) of pleated, reinforced fabrics bonded together which trap the hot or cold air before it enters the home. Dubbed the ‘Designer alternative to double-glazing’, Duette® Shades provide the ultimate design with maximum functionality.

Heat and sound insulation

Trials with Duette® Architella® Shades showed a reduction of up to 43% in an average home’s heating costs through the ability of the cellular design to trap cold air. This design also helps reduce the transmission of noise by breaking up internal sound waves, therefore reducing the amount of sound reflection internally.

Automated and manual operation

The Duette Shades offer a range of operating systems from the manual cord loop and cordless LightRise rail handle to the fully automated PoweView motorised blinds. Operated via a remote, smart app or voice control, the innovative PowerView® automation enhances energy efficiencies, convenience, security and childsafety from the Duette Shades.

Fabric & colour options for versatility & style

Available in a range of contemporary colours the elegant Duette® Shades fabrics are made from a very hard-wearing material called spun-bonded polyester. Choose from Blockout, Translucent and Sheer fabrics depending on the level of privacy and light required. Blockout fabrics are perfect for bedrooms and media rooms. Translucent fabrics allow light but ensure privacy, so good for living areas, whilst sheer fabrics allow for good visibility but still offer protection from the sun. For the ultimate in versatility, choose the Day-Night shades available with block out and light-filtering filtering fabric panels sewn into the one blind.

Unique configurations

In addition to the traditional Bottom-up blinds where you lower the blind from the top to close and raise it from the bottom to open, you can also choose the Top-down option where the shades only cover the bottom half of the window, allowing light and a view at the top and privacy at the bottom or a combination of them both.

Fit most window shapes

Duette® Shades can be fitted to almost any shaped window, including semi-circles and bays. They can be mounted inside or outside frames, and horizontally on skylights. And with a small stack height, they are perfect for ranch sliders and unobstructed views

Dust resistant for easy care and easy breathing.

Duette® Shades are made from anti-static, dust-resistant fabric that repels dirt and dust. This not only means that cleaning is easy, but you can also breathe easy with Duette® Shades. Perfect for all rooms but especially bedrooms to aid sleep and high usage areas such as kitchens and bathrooms for easy care.

What our Customers Say


I really values the personal service. We only had blinds in one area of the house and they retrofitted these with with a remote and match all the other spaces. Having an architectural house had some challenges but their ideas were valuable and the whole process was professional, friendly and stress free. I am super happy with the result and it has definitely added to our living spaces.

Blinds purchased 9 years ago still look like they were purchased yesterday.

The Lahood consultant came and was just amazing with measuring and advising us with what would look and work best in our space, we had no idea really; and when we got the quote we were pleasantly surprised. We love our blinds!
