This traditional Deans blind at Espresso, of Lincoln’s Inn Fields in London, provides more than shade and general weather protection, it also acts as a three dimensional sign; pointing the way to the establishment and making it stand out proudly on the corner with Gate Street. Using our bespoke RAGS® system of graphics application we have also printed the main cover of the awning with the client name and detailed branding. This attractive traditional Deans blind has been made in much the same way since we first started making them back in the late nineteenth century. However, nowadays, we are able to take advantage of modern technology without compromising the traditional look which our clients value. The hard wood traditional blind boxing and front lath is carefully hand painted, as it was back then. However, now we use environmentally sound, water-based, paint rather than the unhealthy and hazardous lead based variety used in the past.

Lincoln’s Inn Fields is named after the adjacent Lincoln’s Inn, where the private gardens are separated from the Fields by a perimeter wall and a large gatehouse. The lawned area in the middle is the location for a tennis court a netball court and a bandstand. The square was once used for corporate events, but this practice has been disbanded. In the 18th Century it is thought that this was the venue for cricket matches and other leisure activities.
