THE ART OF WINDOW STYLING

The Australian Window Furnishings division sources its products primarily from the Components business unit, or our overseas affiliates, and specialises in the assembly/fabrication of premium-end, custom-made window covering products. These products are distributed under the premium brand of LUXAFLEX® and Hunter Douglas Architectural. Private label brands (Vogue, Premier, Betta and Boniwell) are sold through licensed independent operators, as are some unbranded products.  The assembly facilities are based at Rydalmere, NSW and Yatala, Queensland.
