this kitchen is exquisite: superb attention to detail. Who manufactured the windows?

Windows have coverings by Shade Store on them. Windows behind those shades are original 1950's single pane steel.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The owners have friends over for dinner regularly, and everyone wants to watch the chef. "With the old kitchen, that meant guests were hovering right in the work area," says DiCaprio. The 375-square-foot kitchen's new floor plan allows people to circulate from the eat-in counter to the dining area and around the kitchen itself. Base cabinets: Akurum, Ikea; handles: Sugatsune; table, chairs: Cost Plus World Market; wall color: Tropical Tide, Behr
A Cutting-Edge Kitchen in ColoradoColorado's Design Platform redesigned a midcentury ranch's kitchen around an island faced with reclaimed barnwood. From this view we can see that something interesting is going on beneath the surface of the cantilevered table.
2. Accent lighting. This source (also known as focal lighting) highlights art and decorative objects on the walls and atop upper cabinets that don’t go all the way to the ceiling. "Recessed downlighting is a fine source of accent lighting,” says Anderson, “but people need to understand that such fixtures create a triangle of light and therefore need to be spaced according to the angled spread they cast so there are no shadows.”
