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.
