Janneka Barnard, national retail marketing manager, says, “The innovative concept of dedicated Luxaflex Gallery showrooms enables designers, decorators and home improvers to explore the entire range of Luxaflex sun control and window coverings at their leisure in a relaxed and comfortable environment. At CasaBlinds they can also count on the expert help of in-house interior designer, Pippa Kirkland.”


Barnard says, “The growing trend worldwide is to purchase from specialists in their fields and to provide the consumer a perfect forum where professionally trained consultants offer advice on colours and styles for best results.”
