Kitchen Island with Table End in Traditional Design

FairmontMaple Caramel Jute Glaze

In the first photo below, inset maple cabinets are fitted with leaded glass doors, topped with stepped crown molding and paired with a formal tile backsplash for the most traditional look possible.

Yet the next photo reveals a new concept, seamlessly integrated into the traditional design – the table-end island. Organizing island seating this way encourages interaction among those seated, yet allows the space to be co-opted for prep when necessary. The oiled-brass and upholstered bar stools pick up the subtle detailing in the maple inset cabinets, which have revealed hinge barrels. A nod to modern function, the stainless and glass professional range hood promises to keep the atmosphere clear no matter how exuberant the cook.

And finally, the third photo shows how a bonus section of cabinets next to the double-oven stack, home to the microwave drawer, becomes a beautiful display hutch, a graceful transition to the adjacent living area.
