History

There’s a reason we have been in business since 1933, Stylecraft blinds + awnings are your local window furnishing specialists.

We have been in the window furnishings business for over 80 years.

We started manufacturing blinds and awnings from our factory in North Strathfield ran by Gloria and Colin Monro.

 

We produced cedar & painted timber venetians, verticals, roller blinds and a variety of external awnings for homes and businesses around Sydney.

We became a founding member of the Fashionline Group; a family of independent companies in the window fashion industry that meet three times a year to discuss everything from manufacturers both here and abroad, new products, installation techniques, customer feedback sessions and general business advise.

With the closing of our factory, Colin & Glorias Daughter, Narelle and husband John Godsell moved out to the Hawkesbury with their young family. With a serge of families moving out to Sydney’s western suburbs we soon found our feet and began to help other families settle into the area with our helpful & friendly service.

John and Narelle are our go to guys, they have seen every product and have fitted them into every type of home, apartment & office imaginable. Their combined wealth of knowledge is the backbone of our company. Who needs google when you have these two on your team. John is our master installer, overseeing our fittings and Narelle is are our workshop & showroom manager, together, they match our ideas with the right product suppliers, every time.

Having spent many years in the manufacturing of window furnishings and over 80 years selling and installing window furnishings in homes and businesses all over Sydney, we proudly call ourselves specialists of our trade.

Today John and Narelles Daughters, Rebecca & Sarah are at the helm.

Rebecca brings with her over a decade of experience in the service and hospitality industry, looking after the Murdoch & Hariri families as head of service onboard their luxury yacht. Her attention to detail, exquisite taste and exemplary standards make her the keystone of our customer service team.

 

She spent her early twenties as an art curator and has a passion for art & design, currently completing her Interior Design qualifications, you’ll find her at our showroom surrounded by style & home magazines keen to help you find the perfect window treatment for your home.
