For many families, the kitchen is the heart of the home. A place where there is always something going on. A kitchen island is home’s greatest expression of form and function. This stand-alone feature offers the functionality of a kitchen table paired with the distinction of being the room’s focal point. This area has seemingly limitless uses. An area for prep and conversation, homework and home gatherings, landmark decisions and timeless memories, this piece of functional furniture is a master at multitasking.
