I've requested that Houzz kindly remove this photo because of that offensive statue. I hope you'll reconsider your pursuit to purchase one. No offense intended toward you. But that statue is quite hurtful for those of us whose ancestors endured atrocities from that era.

How did you mount the bar? - What is supporting the bar if its not mounted to a stud...that thing looks heavy!! :)

Hello, the bar is actually not as heavy as it looks - it is a hand-built wood countertop with a very thick edge. Underneath are 2 continuous metal angles that are secured to the wall on both ends.

Unfortunately, we do not have the paint color on file... we generally use the Benjamin Moore color palette, although any paint store will color match for you. Sorry I can't be more helpful!

Is the flooring rubber? - If so, where is it sold? I seem to only be able to find similar floors made of pol-vinyl and we want to be as eco-friendly as possible.

The flooring is Flexco rubber floor tiles, with a radial pattern.

Who makes these chairs? - Are they hardwood friendly? Do they have metal feet or is there rubber on the very bottom?

These are Bertoia bar stools by Knoll. They come in a variety of finishes, the ones in the picture are polished chrome. They do have rubber on the bottom of the feet.

Yes, I would like to know the 'back story' on a statute that looks eerily like the Black "lawn jockeys" racist southerners used to keep on their front lawns, which did have a 'backstory', a horrible one.

It was Gordon Enterprises, a local cabinetmaker in Portland, Oregon. Bill Gordon is now retired, but there are many good cabinetmakers in Portland - I'd be happy to share some names if you are in the area.

Nanawall is a well-known brand for bifold windows and doors. Many other manufacturers are starting to provide bifolds as well. This one in particular was a custom size we had made by Loewen. http://www.loewen.com/

The cabinets are from IKEA. The eating counter is a custom piece made out of beech. I hope that helps!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Hiromi Ogawa let in a lot of light and refrained from using upper cabinetry to make the 8' x 20' space feel as open as possible. "You can see and feel the backyard all the way through to the living room," she says. Barstools: Bertoia padded barstools
If you don't have room for a table and chairs, don't give up. Setting this slender counter to bisect the floor-to-ceiling window may break conventional design rules, but it also provides the perfect spot for an indoor/outdoor breakfast with a view. See the rest of this light-filled kitchen.
Lisa Frederick added this to 8 Cozy Tables for Two
This breakfast bar is a fun take on the table-for-two idea. You don't have to face each other to share in the moment.
If you do your best thinking while, well, literally staring into space, a coffee-bar-style perch placed at the window could be just the ticket. Tall bar stools with high backs and bars to rest your feet on provide comfort for a longer stretch of time, while a built-in table makes the most of your space.
Becky Harris added this to Brew a Café Look at Home
Enjoy the view. My coffee shop has this great bar along the window so you can watch the world go by while you sip your latte. This kitchen is open to the yard in the same way, with a perch to enjoy the view.
