Our Timeline

How It All Started

The Beginning

The original version of SelectBlinds.com launches, spearheaded by our founder, Rick Steele, and a group of the original SB staff.


First Ranking

SelectBlinds ranks on the Inc. 500's "America's Fastest Growing Private Companies" list, landing the No. 373 spot.


TV Features

SelectBlinds ranks at No. 287 in the Internet Retailer Top 500 Guide, thanks to a 33% growth in sales. The company's growth has often been credited to partnered brand marketing efforts developed and nurtured by founder, Rick Steele. SelectBlinds products have been featured on popular television shows and networks, including ABC’s "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," FOX Network’s "Home Free," and on Netflix.

Top 5 for Best Place to Work

SelectBlinds ranks No. 3 for the "Best Places to Work" (Small-sized company) by the Phoenix Business Journal.


Going Cordless

SelectBlinds announces a "free cord cleats" initiative, for customers and non-customers alike. Subsequently, the company donates more than 82,000 window blind/shade "cord cleats" (safety devices attached to the inside of a window frame, allowing a user to wrap/tie down loose cords to prevent dangling and potentially dangerous accessibility to children and pets) to families with children.


Honored for Cordless Initiative

To recognize SelectBlinds’ stance to make all its products available with a kid-friendly cordless lift system, our founder, Rick Steele, was given the 2016 Humanitarian Award from Harvard Business School’s Business Expert Forum.
