Backsplash tile? Thank you!
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
studio26 homes
Hello dkotov,

This glass backsplash was purchased through one of our suppliers, Garden State Tile; which has 11 locations throughout PA, NJ, and GA. I believe the brand of the tile is Original Style, but I don't remember the name of this actual color blend. Perhaps they don't manufacture this blend (or even this layout) any more, but here's a link to the pattern, which, if still manufactured, should be available in a variety of color blends ( I hope this helps!

Take care,

Manufacturer of light fixtures over the island? Price?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Hello druthie:

Thank you very much for your inquiry! Without going back to check our records for sure, I believe the pendants hanging down over the island were manufactured by American Fluorescent (recently renamed to AFX Lighting). If that is in fact the correct manufacturer, then it appears they no longer offer the exact same fixture. The pendant that looks like the closest match is part of AFX's NIP Series (; which looks almost identical to the one we installed in this kitchen several years ago, however with one significant twist to the design. If you look closely, the new NIP Series pendant has a somewhat subtle frosted pattern on the lower part of the glass; which could be a stylish touch depending on the coordinating components located nearby.

Well, I hope that is helpful. If I happen to learn that this fixture is in fact something else, I will be sure to let you know otherwise. In the meantime, take care, druthie!

Best regards,

Hello Malila,

Thank you also for your inquiry! I believe the cork has worn just fine for our homeowner. However, it is my general opinion that cork may not be the best product for a kitchen for a few reasons: 1) while soft for our feet and legs during long hours in the kitchen, that softness can also be its demise with a fair amount of heavy use (i.e. lots of traffic over the years, large dogs and their claws, etc.), 2) it appears that most cork is installed more as a floating floor as opposed to solid hardwood, which can possibly pose some small issues with heavy cabinetry sitting on it and general expansion/contraction, and 3) it doesn't seem that cork and moisture 'play' well together, especially considering all of the joints a cork installation typically requires. I hope that helps! Take care, Malila!

Best regards,

Go with HPS grade from Wicanders (1000 series accent) Still looks great in galley kitchen after 8 years. It's rated 15 years commercial . Just installed some in a new remodel and am very happy. Two tips: gently mop and dry (don't leave big pools of water. Protect from direct sun - it is a natural product and can fade.

Hello Shawpitt,

The floor material is cork. The homeowner wanted to be as environmentally firendly as reasonably possible and also have something fairly soft under their the cork flooring fit the bill for them. Please note that there are many, many varieties and colors to choose from these days, so have fun looking!

Take care,

I have looked at hundrets of barstools but these are totally beautiful...where can these be purchased?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Bill Fry Construction - Wm. H. Fry Const. Co.
They're called Lyra Stools.
Once you look them up, you'll find that many retailers carry them.
Not only are they good looking, they're comfortable too.
We have them at our kitchen bar at home and both my big husband and little son are happy sitting in them.
Here's a link:

Hello Manuela!

Everything Rhoda presented is correct. There are multiple places online to purchase these, and from my memory, there is a little cost savings if you purchase four of the them together rather than individually. Here's another link as an example: Lastly, ther're also available in a few different finishes and heights (counter and bar).

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This kitchen illustrates my favorite color advice: Use bold color in ways that are relatively affordable and easy to change out, such as via wall and ceiling paint.
