Its not my project, but im almost 100% sure the countertop and backsplash are carrera marble and the island is walnut veneer.

I have these exact bar stools (seat height 30") and I'm building a new house and would like to create an island like this with sink placed as in the photo. How high does this countertop need to be to accommodate the height of the stools and still be OK for working at the kitchen sink and kitchen countertop?

We like our islands to be standard countertop height - so that all worksurfaces are at the same elevation. In this case, we raised the height a few inches, but only because the clients are quite tall.

Looks more like flat cut, book matched walnut. Great patterning!

Those are Bertoia barstools with, I believe, custom cushions (I've never seen them in that fabric before). Here's a link to purchase:

Would you recommend this style kitchen in an L shape house? - We are considering moving our kitchen in an L shaped house to the old family room (looking over pool) and creating a "Great Room" with the remaining space. It is not traditional but was curious if the client has given you feedback on this location of the kitchen. THanks, dg

I am putting an island in my kitchen, shoudl I match ganite top - I am getting an island, it will be longer than wide due to spcing in the kitchen, I have light oak floors, and cherry cabinets and a darker granite, should I try to use the same granite for the island or totally differnet/ I don't know what looks the best.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to Bar Stools: What Style, What Finish, What Size?
This classic Bertoia metal stool was designed in the '50s and is still as current and fabulous as ever. I can go on and on about this design: Here you have a sculptural shape that's comfortable and interesting in and of itself. But it's also got a back that is basically see-through, so it doesn't feel heavy or overwhelming in a space.
If boldly colored counters aren't your thing, stick to yellow in the accessories, as done in this happy modern kitchen.
Side-by-side next to the main refrigerator is another easy and simple way to go.
7. The Bertoia Stool: Another midcentury classic, Bertoia's wire form creates an unobtrusive silhouette that provides plenty of back support. See more Bertoias in action
