A very modern design here, and I love the black marble on the kitchen island. This has been something I find myself looking for more and more in kitchen design. In the absence of an island, the kitchen looks both bare and inefficient. Not only is the aesthetic of the kitchen important, but so is functionality. This kitchen’s island gives it that necessary functionality, and it also looks fantastic. The oven adds a nice, metallic flavor without being dominating, and the dark browns give the space a nice softening of the light. This is the kind of kitchen to cook in and eat in, sometimes simultaneously.
