New from Seattle-based Henrybuilt: the Viola Park collection of kitchen islands, perfect for creating an instant workspace (we can see these working well in simple loft spaces like those in today’s Kitchen: Loft Space Roundup). Custom designed for each client, the islands can be purchased with flexible in-counter modules and under-counter pivot storage boxes, allowing a wide range of configurations. The line features three models, both mobile and stationary, that can be delivered fully assembled or as a simple kit that can be assembled on site (prices range from $5,000 to $12,000). The islands can be seen at Viola Park’s new Los Angeles showroom located on the Melrose design strip in West Hollywood or on Viola Park’s Website.
