The Berthillon French Kitchen Island

This beautiful piece is Berthillon and it’s a French kitchen island. It’s easy to see the French inspiration. The piece was designed using as inspiration after iceboxes found in French butcher shops of the early 20th-century. However, it’s an original creation with distinctive features.

The Berthillon kitchen island is hand crafted using old carpentry technique that might be seen as old=fashioned but they can’t be matched by any modern creation. The piece is made of solid acacia and the material, together with the hand-crafting technique and the care result in a beautiful antique, a piece with character and personality that would complement any kitchen.

Even though the design resembles an antique, the kitchen island benefits from modern practicality and functionality that we got used with. It features three small drawers and two spacious cabinets that open from the either side. Each cabinet features a fixed shelf. The design is compact and solid and that’s exactly the charm of this beautiful piece. Add the beautiful antique details and the functional storage space and you get an exceptional piece for your kitchen. It’s also a very practical area for cooking, featuring two 2 3/4″-thick rubberwood butcher blocks on top that offer plenty of room for chopping and preparing the ingredients for a delicious meal. You can buy the Berthillon kitchen island for EUR1302.11.

The Tudor collection by Jaime Hayon

The Tudor collection was created by Spanish designer Jaime Bayon for Established & Sons and it’s basically a collection of chairs and armchairs, all featuring approximately the same design with small adjustments. For example, there’s the same chair but with a different upholstery or with a different stitching or finish. Even though the chairs look exactly the same in terms of shape and dimensions, they are completely different one from the others.

The Tudor collection features beautiful and elegant silhouettes, inspired by Henry VIII’s six wives. I’m not sure how they could have been the inspiration for a collection like this one, but let’s just leave it like that. Notice how the design of the chairs is simple and yet opulent in the same time. It’s an elegant collection, both modern and traditional.

Mishima Small House Family in Tokyo

This family residence can be found in Tokyo, Japan. It was created with the help of Keiji Ashizawa Design, project architects Keiji Ashizawa and Chino YamaguchiÅ and structural engineer ÅFASA Akira Suzuki. The house was completed in 2010. The main idea behind this project was to create a residence that would offer privacy to its inhabitants and that would also integrate in the surroundings.

For that there had to be a functional positioning of the rooms. The private areas of the house such as the bedrooms and bathrooms have been placed on the first and second floor, thus increasing the privacy level. The living room and the kitchen are located on the third floor and the study area is just above them in the loft. The location of the rooms has been carefully chosen so that they would benefit from the maximum potential of the sunlight.
