Towering glazed gables, asymmetric windows, lantern lights, glass boxes and giant bi-folds are all part of
the language of contemporary buildings. They make impressive statements, but can be hard to screen –
often a necessity for both privacy and climate control.
Grand Design Blinds are the leading experts in shaped blinds; shading and screening even the most
challenging shapes and areas of glass. The company was set up by blinds specialist Jonathan Pelly-Fry in
2012. Inspired by the dramatic glazing of modern seaside houses in Cornwall, he began developing responses
to their unique screening requirements.
Joined by his son Nick as Design Director in 2014, they now run the business together, offering high-tech solutions to architects, designers and private clients worldwide.
Grand Design Blinds make and install blinds everywhere from public buildings such as Le Manoir aux
Quat’Saisons and the Gare du Nord to private homes, boats and even shepherds’ huts. By definition, each
project is a unique challenge, needing a one-off response.
Grand Design Blinds offer many different types of blinds, which combined with specialist materials and
automated operating systems allow them to create shading solutions for even the most extraordinary
locations. All their blinds are handmade to order in the UK.
