A Lifetime In Wood For One Family

This is a story of a man, born on the land and returning home from World War 2, set about to create a business in Australia with his family.

His Story

 From humble manufacturers, to Hi-Tech leaders in their field of window furnishings and 3 generations with the one family, Seaforth Venetians has become known for it’s service, quality and craftsmanship………

Established by Max Parks in 1950 Seaforth Venetians became a popular supplier to the Australia blinds and shade market with custom made cedar venetians for the interior or exterior applications, it was quickly recognised by Australian Architects, Government and Public that this was a quality made hand crafted product made from high grade wood with long lasting abilities with an aesthetic beauty that would sensibly compliment a wide range of building applications, finish expertise's, operation advantages and the ability to supply components and refurbishing for a lifetime of product, plus a timeless style.

Seaforth Venetians manufacture quality made to measure blinds and shutters for indoor and outdoor applications. Made of durable Canadian Cedar, the blinds provide the beauty of natural timber with the sense of Venetians. Seaforth Blinds add style and warmth to any home or office. Imported from British Columbia & Alaska. Western Red Cedar combines some of the best features of timber while still being relatively inexpensive. Probably the most striking feature is the colour variation, from deep chocolate browns through to light honey colours. Cedar is also very stable in hot or moisture conditions and for this reason is one of the only timbers suitable for venetian blinds. Seaforth Venetians, under the one management, has specialised in making venetian’s for over 69 years. It's for this reason they are considered leaders in their field. Suppliers to the State Government and the National Trust, Seaforth Venetians can be seen complementing buildings all over the nation. Whether in the home or workplace... indoors or outdoors... to suit classic, contemporary or even hi-tech...  blinds will not only compliment and enhance your decor but will also provide a functional service for many years to come. Seaforth also makes security products, Holland, Roller Shutters and all can be electrically optioned.
