All about the island – a closer look at the centre piece of Mark Taylor’s project

“The owners were looking for a larger island, which would work for casual dining and be a central point for socialising, while the seating area at the far end was to connect the kitchen to the outdoor space.”

The central island is the focal point of this room. Its attraction stems not singularly from its interesting angles and material contrasts, but also through its pleasantly pale James 108 blue painted finish, from the Little Greene Paint Company. Professional standard appliances allow this kitchen to work for both social and everyday use. A Siemens induction hob and Elica downdraft extractor
are integrated into the central island. Their flush-fit appearance allows for ease of use, and avoids visually detracting from the island’s shapely aesthetic.

“The approach to this kitchen from the front door, gives a stunning image of a copper-surrounded oil fire; this will work wonderfully for welcoming the homeowners’ guests.”
