Australia has its seasons, but one thing is certain: it’s almost always sunny in the Land Down Under. And while the Beatles have sung praises of the sun in the past (cue Here Comes The Sun), its light isn’t always welcoming for everything, especially for your furniture.
The need to control sunlight is an old issue in home building and design. Home builders have made it a point that they follow a design that heavily favours the free flow of natural light in the interiors of homes, especially during the pre-electric lighting days. On the other hand, homeowners today are quite aware of the need to protect objects and furnishings from the sun’s rays.
