Clever Islands

Mix Color And Texture

"Varied depths, unique countertop materials and architectural details combine to firm a unique textural, functional piece that serves both as a storage piece and as a point of interest. The design utilizes many storage features: roll-out shelves, cutlery storage trays, adjustable shelving and an end display unit.

 

"In addition to the functionality of the piece, the black finish on the more traditional-style base serves as a great foundation in showcasing the various colors and textures in the concrete countertop and contrasts the mirrored and colored flecks in the material. In turn, the warmer look of the concrete contrasts the contemporary sleekness of the elevated glass countertop, which is supported by a hand carved wood column.

 

"The combined use of the various textures and finishes creates an island that, as a whole, lends itself to become the focal point and anchor of the space and broadens the range of possibilities for any client who visits our showroom.
