Venetian Blinds: Elegant and Practical Throughout the Ages
A type of Persian Venetian Blind was discovered by Venetian traders who introduced them to Venice, and then to Paris in the 15th century. Then John Webster, a merchant from London, was the trailblazer in production of Venetian Blinds in the United States in 1767. Venetian Blinds were the window covering of choice at Independence Hall in Philadelphia, when the Declaration of Independence was signed! Later, John Hampson, of New Orleans, designed a method to adjust the angle of the slats in 1841. The first large modern building in the USA to adopt Venetian Blinds was Rockefeller Center’s RCA Building (better known as the Radio City Building) in New York City at the turn of the 20th century. Soon, commercial and office buildings throughout the country were using Venetian Blinds. In the 1950’s, with the advent of the modern ranch-style home, 2-inch Venetian Blinds, now also referred to as Mini Blinds or Horizontal Blinds, became the decorating rage for homeowners.
