How it All Started

In 1976, one man started a blinds company. Working out of his garage in Hampton, he had a van and sold window blinds, mainly to local schools. When it was time to retire, he handed the business on to two of his grandchildren.

Those two grandchildren were brothers, Sven and Rick. They decided to build up the venture – focusing on commercial projects, and cementing partnerships with

As the company grew, their younger brother Guy came on board, as did Christine as company administrator. They brought on installation sub-contractors so they could concentrate their time on the technical specification, design elements, project management whilst building relationships.

In 2010, as a successful, growing window shading company, they bought out Blindfix, a fellow competitor – taking on their people, and their building. And so Stansons moved to its current home in Godstone. The company grew from 4 to 15 people overnight.

This opened the doors to working with tier one main contractors on new build projects, much bigger values and a whole new ball game.

Splitting our time across large scale, longer projects with tier one contractors and shorter ones in the fit-out sector, we found that the processes were very different. One day we could be on site at a large school project, and the next we could be at Chanel’s HQ in Mayfair. What is acceptable for one project, is not on the other. It didn’t feel right. We wanted to add value to the design stage, to solve technical challenges and build long term relationships with clients. We are capable of meeting tight deadlines – from a same or next day sample service to completing a project within a 12-week timeframe. So, in 2018 we took the bold step to focus 100% on the fit-out market.

Scary? Yes. But we think this much better suits our personality. It reflects our ‘people come first’ ethos. We devise bespoke, creative and innovative window shading solutions using our technical expertise, and creative and wellbeing knowledge

Our aim is to be the ‘go to’ company for blinds and curtains in the design and fit-out industry. We want to build partnerships and working relationships. Our clients choose us because we are always striving to be faster, cleaner, cooler and better. We are ambitious. We are credible.
