The Colorful Bee - Linda-Marie Leyble
Hi! We had it made by a carpenter to replicate an antique cabinet I saw in a magazine. I then hand painted and antiqued it!

The Colorful Bee - Linda-Marie Leyble
Hi! The isalnd was custom made by my cabinet guy. However, if you look online you will be able to find an antique demilune and you can place that on the end of your island. I fell in love with an antique demilune that I found on Ebay - but the cost was incredibly high. This was more cost effective (custom made by a carpenter - and we painted and did the decorations on the piece).

We found these at a local lighting store and I honestly don't remember the manufacturers name. Visit a local electrical/ lighting store - they will have a lot if lighting on display and they will have books from most if the main manufacturers.

Scheer & Co. added this to The Well-Concealed Kitchen
A French chest in lieu of a traditional island is an unexpected — and fun! — element in a kitchen.
Kathryn Peltier Design added this to Inspiring Ideas for Vintage Kitchen Islands
A half-round, or demilune, console, as shown here, creates an interesting end to a built-in island and provides additional storage as well.
