A Swift Round-up of Our Year

We know most of you are going to be glad to see the back of 2020, because well, what a momentously strange and challenging year it has been! But here at Swift Direct Blinds we are firm believers that even in difficult and trying times it’s important to take a moment to reflect and think about what you’ve achieved. So today we’re going to talk a little bit about the things we’re really proud of this year.

Launching our New Look and New Collections

Preview of our new wooden blind collections on the site

This year we re-vamped the website in a significant amount of ways including introducing a new look to all of our images and product collections to better organize our site and make viewing our products much easier for you, our customers. We’ve overhauled our Wooden Blinds, Roller Blinds, Venetian Blinds, and Vertical blinds. Whilst we’re still working away like busy bees to continue these enhancements, we’re pretty proud of how the website is looking now and are definitely going to raise a toast to ourselves over this achievement! Here’s to 2021 and more enhancements to our website and to our service to you, our customers.


Our Competitions


Find A Bee brain teaser by Swift Direct Blinds


This year we’ve had more giveaway competitions than ever, and we always love the huge variety of entries we get. We’ve been so blessed to be able to partner with Ideal Home, House Beautiful, Good Living, and Cosmopolitan for our giveaways this year! But by far one of our most difficult competitions this year – finding the bee inside of the image! Did you manage to find it? If not – here’s a second chance to puzzle your brain with this one. As a special mention, though we only held it recently – our transformation competition was one of our absolute favourites. Seeing all the DIY projects and renovations you all completed this year really bought a smile to all of our faces in the Swift Direct Blinds (remote) office. You should be all very proud of the things you’ve achieved this year.


Featured in Vogue

Ok, this one definitely had us beaming. We were recently featured in Vogue, as one of their recommended interior retail stores! They kindly described our blinds as ‘timeless, durable and lightweight’ and we’re thrilled to have such a significant fashion and style institution write so highly of us. You can find the Vogue feature here. We were also featured on the wonderful Beauty Glitch website, who wrote about our smart, sustainable blinds! You can view the article here. Finally, our excellent ‘spot the bee’ competition was also featured in the Daily Mail online.

And last but not least – this year’s best sellers! Our Premium Bright White Faux Blinds (also available in a taped version) remain a very popular choice and our Hopsack Fabric Collection, available as Curtains and Roman Blinds is popular with our customers looking to add some texture to their windows.

You can find all of our best sellers here.

We’ve also noticed lots of people on social media really love our black taped wooden blinds. Is this a brewing trend? You can find our real wood version here and our faux wood version here.

We want to end by thanking you all – our loyal and wonderful customers. This is truly our most precious round-up of the year that in such a trying time for us all, you have continued to support us, to recommend us, to enter our competitions, to engage with our social media, to read our blogs, and to send us your kind words. We are grateful to you all.
