Happy Memorial Day from South Shore Millwork

This Memorial Day we wanted to express our gratitude to the men and women of our Armed Services. Your sacrifice does not go unnoticed and we offer you more than our thanks on this special day, we offer you our support and our prayers for your safe return.

At South Shore Millwork we are fortunate to have a number of servicemen in our employ and we wanted to acknowledge their service to our country.  Whether you fought on the shores of Normandy or are fighting in the mountains of Afghanistan we thank your for your selflessness and courage. And we remember those who lost their lives helping to make our country safe and secure.

Happy Memorial Day from your friends at South Shore Millwork!

Hearth and Home: Custom Mantels

Photographed by Joshua Mchugh for Elle Decor

South Shore Millwork has an inventory that consists of one thing: raw stock. We are a full service, custom woodworking facility. What your mind creates, our hands can make.

Custom mantels are an excellent design tool. Evoke a particular time period by recreating mantels from that time or selecting inspirational elements and adding a modern twist. The intricate detailing of the mantel on the left works beautifully with the finely carved shelving and spindles. When paired with the adjacent Louis XVI–style sofa and Louis XV–style chairs, the entire room maintains an old world appeal with modern accents.

The custom mantel on the bottom left is also a nod to historic beauty. The relatively simplistic design of the Colonial-style mantel is accentuated with period-appropriate moulding. Clean lines make for a timeless feature in any home.

Also using clean lines is the modern mantel featured on the bottom right. This minimalist beauty takes understated elegance to another level. Constructed of gradually recessing beams, the depth draws the eye inward to the warmth of the crackling fireplace.

Regardless of your aesthetic, South Shore Millwork can create the custom millwork to complete your interior design. Call 508-226-5500 for a consultation.
