In this modern farmhouse, the kitchen and dining room are combined in one room. With an eleven-foot-long table, one end of it can easily be dedicated to kitchen work on a typical day. And we love this idea for making it happen: A large stone work surface is elevated on a base of about 6 inches, bringing the surface up to approximate counter height. This one little move does wonders to weave the dining and kitchen functions in a simple and elegant fashion. Such a beautiful stone surface can be left out on a day-to-day basis and stored away to make room at the table for large dinner parties.
