Wooden venetian blinds

Can anyone advise me where I could get wooden venetian blinds these days? Even Ikea seem to have almost stopped doing them. Any pointers v welcome!

TIA

We bought some this week at Ikea, maybe they were just low in stock when you went.

Re: Wooden venetian blinds

Oh that's good to know, I was only looking at the online catalogue. Do they still have them in a variety of widths? And what sort of colour are they?

Pale wood and sort of mahogany colour, maybe more. We got 60cm and 140cm I think, I'm sure there were about 4 or 5 widths.

Could be interested, tell me more? I won't need them for another couple of weeks and won't know exact dimensions required until then either...
