architect: Edward Deegan
installation: Lake Forest, Illinois

This shower enclosure and complementary water closet enclosure was installed in a master bath in Lake Forest, Illinois. All of the interior architecture details were by Edward Deegan of Kenilworth. Center pivot hinges were used with frameless ½” glass doors to assist the owner with care and maintenance. Wilmette hardware crystal knobs and true divided light added to the very clean traditional space of this master bath.

designer: Kara Mann
installation: Highland Park, Illinois

Kara Mann used strong vertical brass frames with symmetrical glass lights to create a stunning pair of pocket doors in an interior space overlooking Lake Michigan. The polished nickel frames include integrated edge pulls and custom pocket door flush pulls that were crafted within the door. The track system was preinstalled in the ceiling for a modern integrated appearance.

designer: Amy Thompson, Tom Stringer Design
installation: Lake Forest, Illinois

Amy Thompson wanted a shower enclosure and matching water closet door to have a simulated divided light grid to provide for a straight forward maintenance program of this master bath. The divided light grid is affixed to the exterior side of the doors and enclosure.

A special matte graphite black finish contrasts to the whites and grays used in the space. Wilmette Hardware manufactured custom jib pulls as a more modern approach on each door leaf. Bespoke butt hinges were also used on this particular enclosure.

designer: Sue Weldon Interiors
installation: Wayzata, Minnesota

The installation of this shower door wall & door system in polished nickel maintained crisp clean lines in a very finished bath space. The house hardware was used for a shower door knob lending to the bespoke feel. The symmetry of the glass demarcation establishes a very structured feeling.  This shower enclosure was hand fit and installed by our Wilmette team.

Un-lacquered brass gives this shower enclosure a jewelry feel. This shower door will age to a stunning warm aged brass. All of the plumbing fixtures are also unlacquered brass. The final finish has to be earned however, once achieved the impression of time and quality will be impossible to miss.


designer: Phyllis Fridrich Interiors
installation: Nashville, Tennessee

This Nashville master bath incorporated full stone slabs and our enclosure pushed it over the top. Proportionally symmetrical divided lights create a very structured feel to the shower system.  Polished nickel corner posts and sticking with exposed slotted fasteners just knock this bath out of the park. As with all of our enclosure’s installation is completely furnished by our Wilmette based team.
