Sunburst Shutters brings something new—something old!—to window treatments.
You’ve reduced, you’ve reused, you’ve recycled—now it’s time to reclaim. Sunburst Shutters, which hurtled onto the scene in Phoenix in the 1970s and opened soon after in Las Vegas, was already known for its Polywood recyclable shutters, and now it ups its green cred by offering the country’s first reclaimed-wood shutters. Its plantation-style louvered shutters are made from naturally weathered wood-harvested from older buildings, fences, and other types of construction—that would have otherwise been destined for the landfill. Aside from its environmental benefits and natural beauty, reclaimed timber is often formed from more mature trees, and is more durable and less prone to warping and splitting than virgin timber from trees grown commercially. With knots and swirls of the kind you couldn’t reproduce if you tried, no two slats are just alike. These rustic beauties are perfectly imperfect. Sunburst Shutters & Window Fashions, 6480 W.
