Coulisse and Altex launch exclusive window covering collections at IDS17

Enter, the Netherlands
Coulisse and Altex will introduce two completely new exclusive window covering collections in their joint booth #610 at the upcoming IDS17 (Interior Design Show) in Toronto, Canada (January 19-22, 2017).

Two new exclusive collections

Altex’ market experience together with Coulisse’s design skills led to the development of the two new collections, especially developed for the Canadian market. The innovative collections called ‘Style’ and ‘Inspiration’ each have their own distinctive look and atmosphere. Both exclusive collections of contemporary European designs include an exceptional range of premier roller shade and panel track fabrics. The designs are inspired by fashion, architecture, and nature and include a range of fabric qualities and colours to suit every interior style.

The collections are presented in beautiful colour combinations in two tailor-made books. According to Gaetan Alepins, president of Altex, the stylish way the collections are presented is unique for the Canadian market and will no doubt generate enthusiasm. The eye-catching colour themes with a nod to fashion, speak to everyone’s imagination.


The all-embracing Style collection includes a variety of high-end plain fabrics in a series of stylish, timeless colours. Apart from delicate micro patterns, the collection includes a range of wool, cotton, and linen look fabrics in a natural look. Premium jacquards complete the collection, with styles varying from delicate white to chic bronze with glamourous gold and silver accents. Their three-dimensional relief creates depth and ensures a luxury window look.



 The Inspiration collection covers contemporary fabric designs and fresh plains. Subtle decorative organic and botanic prints make the window into a decorative style element in the interior. The extensive colour palette ranges from natural and pure to more expressive colours. The high-end fabrics offers widths ranging from 195 to 300 cm for extra large windows.


 Screens to come

With a planned 3rd collection on its way, Altex will also add the Coulisse’s Screen Essential collection. The flame-retardant screen fabrics are a perfect solution for controlling light and heat in buildings.

Roller shade systems and accessories

In addition to the range of fabrics, Altex will also offer the matching roller shade systems of Coulisse. Available in various colours and suitable for any window situation, Coulisse’s latest Absolute roller 2.0 is a modular system developed down to the smallest detail, offering endless configuration options. Also available, are functional and decorative accessories, that comply with the latest child-safety regulations.
