Shutters in Monaco

We met with a London designer whose private client in Monaco had a specific brief for Sliding Track Shutters. The owner requested maximum client privacy in their dining/bar area and beauty spa/salon for their exclusive members-only club. Their vision was to create the appearance that the shutters were floating, albeit suspended on metal arms… a new endeavour for The New England Shutter Company.

Nick flew to Monaco for the day to measure on site. He designed the bespoke aluminium metal arms and supplied tracking to create a truly unique look for our Manhattan style shutters. The large shutters stiles were customised at 42mm x 90mm, so the depth of the stile matched the width of the blades (89mm). In essence, this created a ‘frame’ around the sliding panels. At the request of the client, we customised their paint colour using ‘fire retardant paint’.

Browse through our gallery and see how a set of stylish shutters can transform any commerical space.

Monochrome Magic

If you are looking for a stylish, elegant and timeless look, it is difficult to get it wrong with simple black and white. The monochrome trend can be seen on fashion catwalks in Paris and also in the most stylish of homes. At The New England Shutter Company, our solid tulipwood shutters will be painted to match any colour at no extra charge. While crisp white shutters create a clean and modern look, we recently installed sleek black hardwood shutters to a home to dramatic effect.

Sloane Street Shutters

We recently designed and installed these bespoke shutters in an exclusive office development in Sloane Street. The stunning space is to be a gymnasium, library, treatment rooms and coffee shop with a ‘club’ style. These dark brown distressed faux leather panels work perfectly with the distressed wooden floors and some classic leather gym equipment to create the look.

The owners requested screening to ensure their staff have privacy from passers-by on the street, our director Nick worked closely with the client to create the ideal solution. The shutters are huge fixed panels which required special hoists to lift them into place. The unusual 175mm blades are fixed in a down position and the stiles and rails (the framing) are 100mm square box sections. The panels are resting on the floor, held in place with strong hooks attached to the walls.

Into The Wood; Natural Wood Finishes

From bespoke flooring to fine furniture; natural wood has always been a classic choice for long-lasting quality. But more recently, whether it is the deepest walnuts or the finest light oaks, shutters in natural wood finishes have become the latest trend in window coverings.

The New England Shutter is proud to offer a wide range of designs and luxurious finishes that provide you with the freedom to create your dream interior decor.

For a Scandinavian feel, The Natural Wood range includes the lighter colours such as Maple, Ash, American White Oak and Beech. But if you prefer a rich, rustic finish, we offer Teak, American Cherry and Western Red Cedar.

For a truly individual look, you can also choose from any of our shutter designs while also selecting the perfect finish such as oiled, lacquered, stained or limed. If you’re wanting to fit your shutters into a bathroom or kitchen, we recommend our waterproof Oiled, Teak or Red Cedar finishes.

Regardless of your preference, with their visible grain and a fine hand-crafted finish, these sophisticated shutters transform any room into a warm, inviting space.

Party Time at the Serpentine

Last week, our Founding Directors, Nick and Catherine Garratt, attended the much-anticipated World of Interiors Party 2016.

Held at the Serpentine Gallery, the party is a popular event during the Design Festival. Nick and Catherine had the chance to admire the work of Danish Architect Bjarke Ingels in person, which looked spectacular when lit up against the dark nighttime sky.

The contemporary structure was created to resemble an ‘unzipped wall’ and is made from 1,802 interlocking fibre glass bricks. During the day, the cave-like interior transforms into a daytime cafe and a large open space for displaying performative work.

If you have a spare hour or two, or fancy a day trip to Kensington Garden, we recommend taking the time to visit the Serpentine.

Creating A Beautiful Bay Window

One of the beautiful things about having bay windows is the light and airy environment that they create. Yet, with their angled structure and large areas of glass, your living space becomes more exposed and they can seem challenging to dress.

With our design expertise and highly skilled fitters, we work with our clients to create the perfect set of custom shutters for their home.

We recently installed these classic White Collections Shutters for a client in West London. The client chose to have flat stiles with no moulding detail, with 89mm blades, in a Bright White paint colour.

While the shutters look stylish and chic, this shutter configuration is quite unusual as the widths of the panels are different across the bay and follow the line of the window glazing bar. This provides more versatility to open the middle panels and fold them back when desired.

The effect is simple and clean, with an elegant, traditional feel that also allows our client to control the level of light and privacy in their home.

Designer Inspiration; London Design Festival

Running between 17 - 25 September 2016, The London Design Festival is all about showcasing the bustling city as the design capital of the world. With over 300 exciting events planned to highlight not only British designers but talent from around the world, we wanted to follow the festival’s spirit and celebrate our creatives here at The New England Shutter Company.

Our Founder/Director, Nick Garratt, has a very hands-on role with our client projects and as a result, The New England Shutter Company is at the cutting edge of shutter design.

When the award-winning architectural firm Leroy Street Studio approached Nick to design a unique shutter for their project renovating a large Manhattan townhouse, they together created the beautiful New York design.

Featuring wide blades with a deep, angular edge profile, our New York shutters bring new focus to windows, screens, room dividers and sliding doors.

With a unique concealed tilting mechanism, hidden within the stiles and available in three different blade sizes; 74mm, 99mm and 125mm, our shutters a true work of art. Finished to order, they can be left as natural wood, stained, lacquered, oiled, or painted to match any colour. Or for truly opulent feel, they can also be covered in faux leathers, faux suedes or fabrics.
