About Our Owner
Sia Harandi attended George Washington University, and earned a Mechanical Engineering degree in just three years. After a very successful run in the insurance industry, Sia decided that he wanted to work for himself. After making a connection in the blinds and shutters industry, he founded Pink.
Since 1987, Sia has been building a brand that’s devoted to his customers and to his family. His customers can expect top quality materials, installation, and care as a result of his industry connections and uncompromising demand for quality. Like many families across the country, Sia’s has experienced cancer-related hardship and loss. That’s why Pink donates a portion of all proceeds to the American Cancer Society every year. At Pink, business isn’t just about profit; it’s about delivering an exceptional product and improving lives.
Blinds can dramatically enhance the aesthetics of a home. Not only can they be the perfect element to promote a certain feel, but they can marry the interior and exterior by highlighting a gorgeous view. They can save money on both heating and cooling: did you know that blinds and shutters can enact as much as a thirty-degree temperate difference? Pink is passionate about blinds and shutters, and uncompromising in delivering beautiful craftsmanship for your home.
In his spare time, Sia is an avid athlete. Between golf, soccer, and tennis, he is both a player and a coach. Part of his business acumen and success comes from his tenacity and ambition to succeed, and this trickles into the quality that his customers have come to expect.
