We just got back from a quick trip to Birmingham and the surrounding British countryside. We haven't unpacked our lemon curd and curry pastes yet, but wanted to jump on here to share our favorite Kitchn-y find from this trip: the Massello solid oak "kitchen furniture" from Habitat ...We're big fans of simple, freestanding solid wood kitchen islands and counters. We love the custom kitchen set-ups from Denmark's Hansen Living
, but they're a bit beyond our price range right now.
We're glad to see Habitat
bring out a similar style at a more affordable price. Choose a single Massello piece for an island or outfit your whole kitchen with the collection.
Now, the bad news: Habitat doesn't have a store in the US. We suppose you could have them shipped across the Atlantic. With the pound to dollar exchange rate, these pieces start at $1,000 each. Not too bad for solid wood and nice details. Does anyone know of something similar here in the US?
•Londonm Urchin put some habitat pieces to work in her kitchen.
• On our last trip to Habitat, we found a pendant lamp shaped like a romanesco.
• Did you catch all the Chamba Ware under the island in the top picture?
