New Orleans Plantation Shutters Go Modern
Central City Millworks was selected for a New Orleans millwork project that included custom fabrication and installation of interior 3 1/2″ louvered plantation shutters. The owner of the downtown loft frequently hosted guests who wanted to sleep late after a long night of exploring the Crescent City’s diverse nightlife. He requested that the shutters be designed to block out daylight when needed, be easy to operate, and have a modern look to match the design of his condo.
CCM’s design met all of the owner’s criteria, and included a hidden operator mechanism that allowed the shutters to open and close in unison without having a prominent operating rod common to most operable louver shutters. The shutter design included concealed pivot hinges to maintain the clean, modern look that the owner desired.
The shutters were fabricated and installed in less than 3 weeks to have them available for a party the customer was throwing.
