The kitchen island in this recent House Tour on Apartment Therapy, made of iron pipes and a live edge wood top, caught my eye because it’s not an island design you see very often.

Owners Mike and Molly are fortunate to have enough space in their kitchen for a full-size table, but there isn’t actually a lot of workspace other than the countertop against the wall. By adding an island with an open design on the bottom, they’re able to get more surface area without weighing the room down. (Imagine a solid square wood box, more like a standard island, in the kitchen instead — it would make the room feel too heavy and crowded.)

An interesting choice, but one that probably works well in this space! You can see more of Mike and Molly’s kitchen in the full House Tour below:
