If you're like us, you spend a great deal of time in the kitchen. More than just a space to cook, it's the room that attracts all the action, from finishing school projects, to entertaining, to eating. There's a reason why many refer to it as the nucleus of the home.
We chose five essential pieces from the new Williams-Sonoma Home Spring 2013 collection that will punctuate any kitchen and offer quality, durability and a timeless aesthetic. All are available either online at Williams-Sonoma Home, via catalog, or in-store at their New York City; Portland, Oregon; and San Francisco locations.
Above: Modeled after professional prep tables, the Stainless Steel Chef Table offers a space to chop, mix and prepare. The design features cross bracing and leg levers for a stable surface. Made in the USA, the satin-steel finish is easy to wipe clean. And if you're looking for a quick place to eat, pull up a stool. Available in two heights and lengths; $1200 and $1300.
Above: The Fitzgerald Upholstered Bench has a versatile style that will complement any space in the kitchen or dining room. Classic, clean and comfortable, it is made in the USA and features thick padding, durable seating and a kiln-dried hardwood frame. Neatly upholstered and edged with welting; starting at $1299.
Above: Borrowing its look from a vintage fixture sourced in a historic New York City building, the Garrison Pendant lends a classic shape to any style kitchen. The hand-rubbed finish takes on a rich patina with age. Available in antique brass (shown here) or oiled bronze; $795.
Above: Handcrafted from wrought iron and reclaimed solid elm, the Wrought Iron Counter Stool has a humble look inspired by vintage draftsman seats. The height can be adjusted, making it for a counter staple or even backup seating option; $295.
Above: On the list of things we always need: extra space and storage. The Reclaimed Pine & Marble Island offers ample below shelving and drawers for storing essentials. Rugged and practical, it is handcrafted from reclaimed solid pine and features a veined white marble inlay for rolling doughs. The unfinished wood lends to its rustic appeal. Available in two sizes; starting at $1195.
