Ikea’s Fyrtur smart blinds start to arrive in the US, but only in retail stores

Ikea’s new Fyrtur smart blinds are finally making their way to the US after a delay earlier this year, but they only seem to be available in retail locations for now, with online purchases still listed as “not available.”
As Ikea had announced earlier in the year, the US is only getting the Fyrtur blackout blinds, not the lighter Kadrilj model. Ikea is selling eight sizes of the blinds, ranging from 23 inches wide (for $129) to 48 inches (for $179). As my colleague Thomas Ricker notes in his review, the shades can’t be cut: they’re all 76 3⁄4 inches long, with the maximum length that they unroll to limited by the user as part of the setup process.
