contemporary country elements - pale chalky shades, stone, wood and white | Luxury small hotel by the sea in St Ives, Cornwall -

Kitchens without islands (I remember when all our kitchens had tables and chairs smack in the middle. I didn't even realize we don't do this anymore. It feels so right, somehow, and a working island feels so wrong. Don't think I'll ever feel the same way about islands again.)

Love the alternative seating solution. Nice to be able to face the person across the table, which you don't have the ability to do at a usual bar island.
