When we first met with our fabulous kitchen designer two years ago, he walked into our rental unit and immediately began planning our future kitchen around our dining table. This sounded great to us because we loved the table (it was actually purchased on our honeymoon). It's a simple, rustic, dark, sturdy, social table.
Our cabinetry color was matched to the table and we tried to accent the room with slightly more modern elements. Concrete ceasarstone countertops, polished chrome fixtures, stainless appliances...all juxtaposed against the big rustic table. The final piece of the puzzle was a smaller replica made as a kitchen-bar-type-table.
Well, today was a memorable day, because that final, special replica finally found its way home.
I'm so happy with the woodgrain next to the Caesarstone countertops. It has really pulled everything together. The poor original table has taken a back seat this evening to his new buddy...he can be seen at the back of the photo below...surely to be elevated back to his prominent position tomorrow.
Besides our under counter lighting and a few recessed lights, the kitchen should now be finished. It's amazing how different the space feels with the final element present...it feels done, complete. !!!!
