Window Blinds: A History


Ancient Egypt introduced the concept of window blinds to the world. Millennia later, in 1769 Edward Bevan was awarded the first ever patent for Venetian blinds in London, England. But eight years prior to his achievement, the first shade installation was recorded in 1761 in the world-famous St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome.

Over the centuries, the use and functions of window blinds have witnessed numerous changes. When blinds made their debut, the sole purpose was ventilation and privacy. But today, blinds come in an array of different designs, patterns, and textures and add to the elegance of windows.
