“Twilight drops her curtain down and pins it with a star,” Lucy Maud Montgomery once said. If you are pulling your curtains at twilight and they fall off the rail, then a swift visit to Officine Voluptas, is written in your stars this spring.
You’ll find everything you need to start from the beginning in your window treatment overhaul and it’s on special too: with every new curtain order, Assistant Manager Chelsea Zhang is offering free aluminium tracking, free blackout-weight lining and, to clients in Christchurch and its surrounds, there is also free hanging and, of course, free measure and quote.
As if that wasn’t enticement enough, a further offer celebrates the opening of the gorgeous new showroom at 35 Riccarton Road – simply mention that you have read about Officine Voluptas in Metropol Magazine to receive a further 20 percent discount on all new orders, which applies to everything in store!
“You can achieve your dream home with our curtains and blinds,” Chelsea says. The showroom is vibrant with curtain options in every colour, weight and texture, with fabrics varying from velvet, to silk, to sheer, and each room in your home is catered for. Chelsea is excited to present new fabrics to add to the already extensive range from New Zealand, Australia and China.
There is a very popular checked chenille, so soft and warm and it comes in three stylish colourways: navy and cream, pale brown and cream and cream with yellow. A gorgeous new Coated Linen is already blackout weight – there’s no need to line it – and you can choose from dove grey or soft brown.
Most of the fabrics in the showroom are presented in full drop, rather than as tiny fabric samples so you get a graceful preview of the finished effect of the curtain. You can also appreciate the quality, weight and texture of every fabric while you are making decisions.
“We love to help people enhance the value of their home,” Chelsea says. “Our clients receive high quality curtains and at a very reasonable price.”
The curtains, blinds, and sunscreens are all created in the company’s own factory in Auckland, ensuring clients receive a very competitive price. Most fabrics are always in stock, but should you choose something that isn’t, it will be air freighted in immediately. Where fabric is in stock, your new curtains and blinds can be hanging at your windows in under three weeks.
Officine Voluptas offers a two-year warranty on all its fabrics and installation.

Curtain store Officine Voluptas is thrilled to announce it has moved home from the character building in Picton Street to a beautiful and bright new showroom in the complex at Thirty Five on Riccarton. With parking at the door, the showroom is located in a café and restaurant heartland, so you can ponder your curtain and blind choices at leisure over a latte or a lychee tea.
With Officine meaning workshop in Italian, and Voluptas being the Roman Goddess of pleasure and enjoyment, you certainly feel you have entered a workshop that diverts the five senses. The showroom is a riot of curtain options in every colour, weight and texture, with fabrics varying from velvet to silk to sheer and each room in your home catered for. The only difficulty in this temple of fabric fancies could be deciding which to choose.
Fortunately, Retail Manager Kris Yang and his team of three circumvent that issue by presenting most curtain fabrics displayed in a full drop, rather than just as tiny fabric samples. You get a graceful preview of the finished effect of the curtain.
The team is currently excited about helping you get your home cosy for the cold months. All clients this winter will receive free black-out weight lining with their new curtain order. The large range of winter-weight fabrics includes a luxurious 95 percent cashmere option.
Kris says they will work all around the South Island, with many orders coming from the Southern Lakes area. Clients based in Christchurch and its surrounds receive free aluminium tracking, free hanging and, of course, free measure and quote.
You’ll find blinds and sunscreens as well, and all are made to measure at very competitive prices, because they are created in the company’s own factory in Auckland. The fabrics are sourced from New Zealand and China, while the roller blinds come from Australia. Most fabrics are in stock for immediate use, but should you choose something that isn’t, it will be air freighted in immediately. Where fabric is in stock, your new curtains and blinds can be hanging at your windows in under three weeks.
An established business in Auckland for almost 20 years, the company expanded to Christchurch in 2016, being sure to bring the south its goal of ensuring you “receive high quality curtains at a very reasonable price”.

The right window dressing can change the look of even the simplest of homes, making it beautiful and sophisticated. Textured materials, fabric coverings and blinds come in a myriad of different styles and colours, giving you the opportunity to choose those that match your home’s theme.
A relative newcomer on the Christchurch curtain and blind manufacturing scene, though well-known in Auckland since 2001, is Officine Voluptas, where modern design meets cosy comfort. Over the years, the company has built a solid reputation for high-quality curtains, very competitive pricing and excellent service. Now Christchurch customers can experience that winning combination.
Located in a character house in Riccarton that is ideal for displaying full drops of curtain fabric, Officine Voluptas’ showroom is like an Aladdin’s cave of colour, design and texture. There is everything from sensual velvet and shimmering silk, to the warmth and practicality of wool, as well as easy care cotton and polyester. The designs are as varied as one’s imagination. A little girl would adore curtains in her bedroom with characters from Frozen, while sheers with a subtly elegant leaf or magnolia design could grace any lounge window while protecting precious furniture from UV glare.
There are so many window dressing possibilities – not only drapes, but also the patterns and textiles of roller, vertical or Roman blinds. Officine Voluptas can manufacture them all. “We offer a full package for customers in Christchurch and out to areas such as Rolleston and Lincoln – free measure and quote and free installation,” says Kris Yang, who set up the Christchurch branch.
“We want the whole process to be easy and enjoyable. Choosing window dressings should be a really delightful, pleasurable experience – that’s the meaning of the ‘Voluptas’ part of our name, while ‘Officine’ is Italian for workshop – and we certainly make every effort to help and advise customers on the right fabric for the rooms they want to dress, as well as on the type of track, rod or tie-back that will set the drapes off to perfection.”
Once measurements are taken and the fabrics chosen, the window dressings are manufactured in the company’s Auckland factory. “It normally takes only two weeks for the curtains or blinds to be produced. As soon as they are ready, we will contact the customer to arrange a convenient time to install. We are very pleased to offer a two year warranty on both our fabrics and our installation. We would love to see Christchurch people at our showroom as we have some very good price offers for our new branch.”
