S: Shutters, Storm Doors & Signs
The company offers unique designs-cutouts, carvings, and appliqués, which are additions to any of their products. These designs have become part of Seaport Shutter’s iconic, signature look that resonates with people. The cutouts, like the popular starfish, are cut out of the wood, carvings are carved into the mahogany or cedar and appliqués are raised medallions. “All of our appliqués are handmade, in-house by our team of artists,” says Huard. “The medallions are really special to us because we do not sell them individually and they go on our products only.” With over 95 appliqué choices, including the classic scallop shell in gold leaf, there will surely be a choice for everyone. Custom designs are possible as well, and the team goes above and beyond to create a design that the homeowner will treasure.
“We have a client who lives in Chatham—his principal residence is in New Canaan, Connecticut, where he lives on an apple orchard. He wanted one of his doors to have an apple tree on it, so we made him this custom appliqué,” Huard says, pointing to an intricate gold-leaf apple tree with painted red apples.
In the past five years, Seaport Shutter has become a certified Hunter Douglas dealer and installer. The company has also developed their own paint line, The Seaport Palette, including unique blends like Hydrangea Blue, Olde Navy and Mint Julep. A new branch of their business was introduced too, The Sign Shop at Seaport Shutter. It may be a simple house number sign or a large quarterboard sign for above the garage. Thinking of naming a Cape Cod residence? The team at the Sign Shop can customize the home’s unique name in a sign that will be a focal point and a conversation piece.
The company also has a sales office in Natick and a sparkling new showroom located in the historic Brewster Garage on 6A in Brewster. Aside from Seaport Shutter’s quality, there is an emotional component to these pieces. “Our products evoke a feeling,” says Huard. “Helping to create a space that invites family traditions for years to come and brings joy to people, makes us happy and keeps the creative aspect alive.”
