What are Louvres?

Louvres, just like its museum-counterpart, are French in origin.  Originating from a medieval slatted system, fitted over windows to help with ventilation, in modern-terms 'louvre' is an alternate term for the hanging blind slats in a vertical blind.
For example: "It's a lovely day outside. Can you turn the louvres to let some light in?"
