Pulled Pork and some Shabby Chic Shutters in Central London Posted on 24 Nov 13:32 , 0 comments

Shabby Chic Shutters Project in Soho - July 2016

We were delighted to work with Picturesque Productions for the opening of Little Pitt in Soho. Pitt Cue is a restaurant/ bar with simple but very very tasty food. Simply serving to the hungry mouths of Londoners “Buns, Bourbon & Beer”. The target of this project was to supply shabby chic shutters to a themed restaurant in Central London. To go with this simplistic approach to this concept, we worked with the client Picturesque Productions to deliver this right through to the look and feel of the restaurant. The client chose shabby chic shutters to match the Deep South feel of the new restaurant in Soho.

Sumatra Shutters: the best choice for the project

To meet expectations our expert measurers advised them to go for our top range Sumatra Shutters. The shutters have a stained finish and feature 24 panels with a smaller slat size that would give a cosy saloon feel. The 64mm slat size provides a bit more privacy than larger slat sizes and can be very efficient at preventing light entering the room when closed adding to the western theme. Rather than the more traditional tilt rod the client decided on a hidden tilt rod option to bring the look a bit more up to date. To finish off the look the stain we used was a Wenge to get that stressed feel and used antique brass hinges. Bi-folding windows allow for extra light and a western saloon feel in the summer months. As a result, the stylish Sumatra shutters have now become really shabby chic shutters!

Project time frame

We worked on this project from inception to delivery, working with the client from initial measure and consultation in June 2016 to deliver and install in July 2016. That means a total of just 5 weeks from measure to install! On the day of installation with a tight time frame for opening to the public it was all hands-on deck for the team working through the night to complete installation within five hours. But at least the team got some delicious food to help them install on this great project.
