Here is another curved island in a gourmet kitchen design, and I have got to say that it is really a great idea. What it does is create extra space, and also creates a sort of division for people to both do prep, but also eat. I can easily see three to four people being able to use this station at the same time, with two folks eating and two people working on food preparation. Ideas like a curved island are great when it comes to increasing the functionality of your space. I also like the color scheme, and the natural lighting.
