Plantation Shutters in Modern Design

This project is one of my favorites, as it show how versatile plantation shutters can be.  They are right at home in this distinctly modern interior.   The design work was done by David Smith Ltd, a firm based out of Chicago.    I love working with these men– they are detail oriented and precise in the vision they have for their clients.

In this space…

3 1/2″ louvers were used to maximize the view, as this is a lakefront property.

Built out of white oak, Kirtz hardwood shutters were custom stained to match the hardwood flooring in the home.

Kirtz created a custom framing profile to compliment other mill-work in the space.

Here are a few before and after photos~
