The Hive

Following Top Drawer and the BBSA Showcase, being at New House has been like visiting a beehive.

Our new Roller Blind and Accessory collection is in greater demand than we hoped, and it's difficult to keep up with orders for the collection books. Fortunately, another big batch of fabric samples is due in tomorrow, with more promised for the week after (and the week after that too).

Our sample department has also been building blind pull displays that'll soon be winging their way to customer showrooms :
Meanwhile our Textile Machinery Dept. has been busy too - as these yarn-breakage detectors are soon to be exported to Germany later this week :  

We haven't found time to add our new roller collection to our website yet.... but we will do so soon!

Showcase 2012

Showcase is the UK's trade show for the blind industry, and speaking to many in the build-up, a lot of exhibitors were a little nervous.

The blinds industry has taken a bit of a bashing of late, as with few moving home, the redecoration market has fallen loads.

Investing in new products in a downturn is a tricky business as it's guesswork trying to get your timing right. We're no cleverer than anyone else, but at New House we've been slowly planning our new roller collection for the last 2 years, and it felt great to launch our new collection at Showcase 2012.
