The holding company of A House of Happiness is Vriesco International Fabrics B.V., founded in 1948. Our company employs 120 people and has head offices in Leeuwarden, four showrooms in the Netherlands (Leeuwarden, Waddinxveen, Deventer and Eindhoven) and an office in Belgium (Antwerp).

We have more than 65 years experience as the specialist in made-to-measure curtains.
Whether the curtains are for a 20 centimetre window or a cruise ship with 8000 windows, all orders placed with A House of Happiness are treated with the same care and enthusiasm. Each order is unique and one-off, curtains are never made in series, they're always tailor-made.
A House of Happiness fulfils the most wide-ranging wishes. Covers for slanting roof windows or lofty curtains for a theatre stage, fire retardant office blinds or floaty transparencies for a conservatory, curtains made from flimsy organza or more sturdy material.
Our fabrics are also suitable for cushions, tie backs, plaids and pouffes by the way. The fabrics can also be used to cover furniture to provide the finishing touch to an interior.
For most fabrics, the dimensions of the lengths are fed into the computer for cutting, except for thin fabrics such as transparent voiles, which are cut carefully by hand with the grain. Each length then begins its journey through the many machines of the fabric processing department, until they are ready for steaming and packing into plastic sleeves for transport. A House of Happiness has all the latest technologies at its disposal, and employs staff who have traditional furnishing skills.
