I did something similar to this with pans from a restaurant supply store. These look custom made.

What else would you put here besides wine bottles. With 3 teenage boys thinking something else would be better sitting out. Love the idea of the herbs, and even the wine during parties... just couldn't think what else would look good sitting there.

I think this space can be used many ways. If you are having a party, you can chill any kind of drink here soda, bottles, lemon slices or whatever. You can fill the bottoms of the metal sections with ice and load up with drinks. For BBQ's, add all your " hamburger parts" tomatoes, lettuce, pickles, again over ice. For Everyday use, keep all your cooking accessories there...utensils, oil/vinegar etc. Hope that helps. Charmean Neithart

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lily Gahagan added this to Design Details: Neat Little Niches
With drawers underneath and a breakfast bar on one side, you may think you've utilized every ounce of your island. But this little trough begs to differ. Take a little scoop out of the middle, and herbs, condiments and drinks become accessible to the cook and those seated on the other side.
Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to 12 Great Ideas for Organization In the Kitchen
Or have a custom pan made to hold items like fresh herbs, wine, oil and vinegar in a kitchen island countertop. It's a great way to get things off of the counters, and even though they're in the counters, it creates a sense of calm through its intention. Organization is very psychological — it's about making things look as if they have a place or are meant to be there.
Lily Gahagan added this to Herb Gardens for Indoors and Out
On the counter. This idea might be best for herbs already cut (fill a little water at the bottom of the trough to keep herbs fresh), but you could just as easily stick a small pot in there to have growing greens close at hand when preparing meals. (Just be sure they get regular doses of sun to keep them healthy.)
Becky Harris added this to Photo Styling the Kitchen with Food
I have been fascinated by this sunken bin since the first time I saw it. Filling it with wine bottles and leafy greens shows off its capacity.
Cate West Zahl added this to Indoor Gardening: Herbs and Succulents
Function trumps form here, with pots of herbs stashed along side bottles of wine while an Italian feast is just waiting to be cooked up. One can achieve a similar look by taking cut bunches of the herbs, putting them in water, and using them for a few days.
If your climate has mild winters, you can keep pots outside. If not, bring herbs indoors for the fall and winter. Most herbs require six hours of sunlight, so keep them in a sunny spot, preferably one with direct southern or eastern exposure. Get the basics for growing herbs in containersOnce the containers are prepped and ready, choose which herbs to plant based on your favorite recipes. I’ve grouped suggested herbs by their soil and light requirements in case you choose to place them in the same pot.
