A mudroom was needed off the kitchen entry to provide space for an active family. A custom storage unit was designed for storage along with a desk for home office activities. This photo also highlights the bar area requested by the Owner.

I thought they came from Rejuvination Lighting Company, but I can't seem to find that short stem again. You could call Rejuvination and ask if they can modify their Rose City light fixture, or else use the really short pendant.

I believe that desk area had a 24 inch deep work surface.
Second reading, you asked for width, I think that was about 32 or 33 inches wide.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Designed for an active Chicago family, this kitchen opens up to a snug home office and a mudroom area with built-in storage for outerwear and plenty of room to sit down and pull off snowy winter boots.
Natalie Myers added this to The Handsome Mud Room
If you have space to spare, the built-ins in the back door to this kitchen find space for a writing surface, lockers and cubbies, even a wet bar. With ample lighting, this kitchen will naturally become the central hub for family activity.
