Like the chair color. Where are they from? - Love the whole kitchen. Currently I am remodeling my kitchen with gray high gloss cabinets and think the bright green counter and eggplant or purple chairs would compliment these cabinets.

The chairs are covered in a iridescent vinyl, you might try looking for something similar at a local upholstery fabric store.

The surf board island was the client's idea...we just designed it. The counter is quartz - Ceasarstone's "apple martini" which has shockingly been discontinued. However, Silestone makes a color called "green fun" that is very similar.
Good luck,

I have found the Silestone colour but does not seem as vibrant so will continue looking. Thank you so much for your help

I have 3 equal size windows and plan to center the sink under the firtst window. Will that look odd? - I have an L shaped kitchen with fridge and range on one wall and the other wall has (a door seperating the L shape &) 3 windows 4'x4' without any upper cabinets. I plan to center the sink under the first window in order to keep my work triangle at about 23'. If I center the sink under the middle window it makes my work triangle to large. What do you think?

It is a challange to create a strong formal symmetry with the L shaped Kitchen. Asymmetry can work just as beautifully. I think placing the sink under the first window is a great idea. You understand better than anyone how you use your kitchen. This way your triangle stays comfortable and functional. I don't know the full context of your home and style but perhaps a 2 window configuration isn't out of the question. Center the sink under the first window and substitute one larger window for the other two. It might help the overall composition of the asymmetry I mentioned.
Good luck!

Is it OK to not have the kitchen sink centered over the window?

It's absolutely okay. The sink needs to go where it works for you. It's long been put by a window because tasks at the sink are generally boring or yucky, so the window is a pleasant diversion!

I agree with Anne! If you look closely the sink in this kitchen is not centered on the window. The window locations in this project were driven more by the exterior composition.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The ceiling is Reardon's favorite part of the kitchen. "We had to drop the ceiling to run air-conditioning duct work. Furring it down gave an opportunity to play with circles and curves in the ceiling," she says. The dining table is an oval-shaped granite table the clients had in their original house. The surfboard-shaped island was inspired in part by the table, but was meant to be more of a whimsical accent. "The rest of the kitchen is relatively plain, so the island really takes center stage," Reardon says.
