The Leaf Blinds

The Leaf Blinds combines house plants with window blinds. Many window blinds are closed almost all the time. Wouldn’t it be nice to use something organic and living for cover and shade, instead of cold metal sheets?

The Leaf Blinds is a relaxing indoor element with its visual reference to natural tree foliage.  The Blinds consist of vine plants, such as ivy or golden pathos, and a hanging planting pot. The height of the system can be adjusted manually or automatically to accommodate to changing lighting conditions. In addition to providing shade and cover the Leaf Blinds also purifies the indoor air. The Leaf Blinds adds a beautiful touch of nature to any indoor space.
