The sinks are Kohler. The main sink was their farmhouse sink, corner one is a bar sink.

We didn't select the plumbing fixtures on this project so this isn't info that we have on hand. Thanks for your interest in our project though and I hope you've found a cool faucet.

It is a downdraft cooktop, I believe it is Viking induction cooktop.

About 7'x4' for the island itself and another 2' or so for the little table at the end. We designed it to let two people cook at once, the cutout lets the second person reach from the other side and also puts the cook outside of the circulation path. Works great, they love it.

The cooktop is an 6 element induction cooktop by Viking. The island is soapstone top with painted and glazed maple wood cabinets. Paint is Lancaster yellow and glaze is brick. Both sinks are by Kohler.

The kitchen was designed specifically so that clients, who enjoy cooking together, could both access the cook top from either side or both sides at once. The triangle is actually incredibly efficient if you take a look at the previous picture you can see that the fridge is directly opposite the microwave and the double ovens are behind the photographer. It made sense to have a prep. sink at the island in addition to the main sink so that multiple people could prepare meals simultaneously. The microwave is under the counter for aesthetic reasons and because they do not use it very often. While the layout might not work for everybody, the homeowners have been very happy with the functionality of the kitchen. One of the many reasons to hire an architect. Your kitchen should fit your lifestyle.

I would guess Benjamin Moore since that is the typical paint we spec but I can't be sure.

Determine your entertaining lifestyle first. Do you enjoy cooking while entertaining, or prefer to stay out of the kitchen once the guests arrive? If so an open concept floor plan with a large bar, and area to talk and socialize will be in order.

If you are a more experienced cook who enjoys having many cooks in the kitchen, consider multiple sinks and preparation areas will be essential.

Also consider if you will have the dining room adjacent to the kitchen, or if you will need a staging or buffet area to have food sitting or waiting for guests. This will help when entertaining, and not having to run back and forth to the kitchen.

Excellent advice, entertaining means different things to different people.

This kitchen in particular was designed specifically to allow for multiple experienced cooks to use it at once. To that end the cooktop was placed such that it could be accessed from both sides. In this case it drove the design however I think most kitchens are used by multiple people at one time so it is certainly work thinking about.
