We are completely enamored of the Henrybuilt kitchen system. The company originated in Seattle, opened a Manhattan showroom not long ago, and is coming to LA soon; expect expert engineering, beautiful materials (rift-cut oak, walnut), streamlined silhouettes. Equally at home in a period building or a modern loft, it's our dream kitchen system. Not planning to expand your culinary empire at the moment? Consider their swoon-worthy furniture: When we visited their showrooms in Seattle (Janet) and New York (Sarah) this past summer, we were captivated by their designs. Peruse the offerings at Henrybuilt.

Henrybuilt's furniture pieces are made to order, so you can specify your own dimensions. Some of our favorites from the line:

Steel Table 4: 36 inches by 84 inches, in bamboo with white or gray powdercoated base: $4,100:

Round Table 1: 56-inch diameter with solid wenge top and dark bronze powdercoated base, $5,800; and Side Chair 1, $1,500:

Steel Bench 3: 72 inches long, dark gray steel powdercoated base with Kvadrat fabric cushion, $2,900:

Wood Bench 5: 72 inches long in solid, plain-sawn American black walnut, $3,200:

And, one of our all-time favorites, the Wall Chair: 18-inch-wide solid teak seat with white powdercoated wall bracket, $575:
