Vent-a-hood and Best by Broan both have something similar...though I think that's a Wolf range, I don't see the Wolf logo on the hood.

Based on the height..I think they're custom. Most cube ottomans will be about 18" tall. These look taller. See a standard height example from Ballard Designs.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Industrial Strength Kitchens
This kitchen reminds me of an elegant version of the sewing room on Project Runway or something. I haven't seen a kitchen laid out like this before.
Becky Harris added this to (Kitchen) Island Light
I can't seem to write about kitchens or islands without including this interesting image. Everything about it is so unexpected to me, and the perfectly curated light fixtures are no exception.
Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to Defining a Look: European Eclectic Kitchens
Open shelves can take the place of wall cabinets, but let's be honest—they're not ideal for dishes unless you want to dust them before use everyday. They may not be ideal for storage, but boy, can they make an impact on the look of a kitchen!
Lisa Frederick added this to Double Islands Put Pep in Kitchen Prep
Finally, there's no rule that an island has to look like an island. The one on the right in this kitchen is styled after a table, which gives it a furniture feel and dresses up the space.Tell us: If you have a pair of islands in your own space, was it worth the splurge? We'd love to know more — leave a comment below.
