how to install the raw wood plank to the wall, and what if the wall is natural stone wall ??? thank you

The wood sits on top of a very sturdy set of cabinets. the cabinets are reinforced with steel framing. You probably need a contractor. (especially if you want to 'float' a piece of wood and leave out the cabinetry support below!).

Yes it is stainless steel. Custom made stainless steel shelves. We just did the same detail in an another project, which will be in publication, soon, probably on Houzz. Very pricey to do, by the way.

You can get a similar look and feel if you would be willing to go with hot rolled steel, a material that I actually prefer to stainless.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to HEAVY METAL
The contrast of this rough-edged wood with the shiny metal cabinets works well.
Jason Ball Interiors, LLC added this to Loving Wood's Live Edge
A touch of the outside. In this ultra-modern environment, the live-edge shelf plays well against the steel and white surfaces. One, simple natural element to remind visitors of the outside world.
