This Amazing Kitchen Island Is Actually a Tiny Ocean

Beyond Our Means

From the world of Kitchens Beyond Our Means comes today's exhibit: a crazy, crazy kitchen island that is so much more than an island. In fact, it contains the sea itself.

This kitchen island dispenses with bar seating, storage cupboards, and all the other usual features of the suburban island. No no. Let's have a salt water aquarium instead!

As Gizmodo points out, this could actually be practical (maybe?) if you used it as your own private stocking ground for shrimp, lobster, and other seafood delicacies. All you'd need is a staff member to keep everything happy and well-fed.

Is available "in limited editions" and "made to measure," naturally. On a scale of 1 to 10 Russian billionaires, we vote this an 8. Add lobster and we'll kick it up to 9.
