Coulisse and Altex window covering collections raise the bar in Canada

Enter, the Netherlands

At the recent IDS17 show in Toronto, the joint booth of Coulisse and Altex exceeded all expectations. The exclusive collections of contemporary European designs, especially developed for the Canadian market, were very well received by the show visitors. The collections named ‘Style’ and ‘Inspiration’, include an exceptional range of premier roller shade and panel track fabrics, each with its own distinctive look and atmosphere.

Successful Show

Mr. Dan Cook, Director of sales at Altex comments: “I have seen literally thousands of displays and booths, and once again Coulisse lived up to the reputation of being a first-class brand as a total solution provider. Several top designers, industry partners and architects
were so excited about the window coverings that they saw direct opportunities to include our fabrics within their specific projects”.

He continues: “We were very pleased to see that over 90% of all clients we invited actually visited our booth. Thanks to the great show interest, we have high expectations that Coulisse brand and collections are going to catch on in Canada. In the next few weeks, we will work hard to follow up on the 200 plus new leads from architects and designers, to ensure a further successful roll-out of the Coulisse collection brought to you by Altex throughout Canada. If we had to summarize the event in one word, it would be WOW!”
