No, just stainless tubing cut to size, covering 5/8" diameter threaded rod.

You're welcome -- nice to feel part of a community. The foot rail was just a clear (no knots) Doug Fir 2x4 beveled on the top. I had a metalsmith make the brackets, though you might find something like a handrail bracket that'll do the trick in a hardware catalogue.

Counters are Richlite 3/4"; stool we've had for a while, it might have come from Cost Plus in San Francisco.

The less often we need something, the higher the shelf it sits on. I stand on a chair or stool for the top shelf -- for the once every year or so we need the what-ever-it-is. Of course the alternative would have been to leave off the top shelves and do without the display items, but then your eye wouldn't be drawn up to the 11-foot ceiling height so well.

I would check out Rejuvenation.com,on line or if your lucky enough to have one of their stores close by. Fantastic place and they do custom pieces also. The "Blue Pointe" fixture is to die for and it has multiple arms. Good Luck,Georgia

The vertical tubes supporting the shelves are stainless. The base cabinet drawer pulls actually came only in brass, from India, found at Hendley Hardware in SF. I had them plated by the only guy I could find who could work with the slightly warmer-colored trivalent chrome, instead of the notoriously toxic hexavalent type.

One more question - are the shelves all solid wood? My carpenter says the sold wood will not be stable for shelves. He suggested to use 3/4" veneer and make a face with real wood. I am not sure if it is a good idea. I really want to have real sold wood as shelves over counter in the kitchen. Your advice will be appreciated.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Gainer took out a wall between the kitchen and dining rooms to merge the spaces. The salvaged Douglas fir shelves come from the original 120-year-old wall, making the kitchen and historic home more cohesive. These shelves, the cork flooring and the paper-based countertops will all ding, dent and darken over time to meld with the home's old charm. Gainer found the antique chandelier and made two kitchen pendants to match. Found parts from Ohmega Salvage and the hardware store help tie the kitchen and dining area together. The large steel post in front of the island serves as a structural support beam in the ceiling and acts as a conduit for the shelf lights' wiring. Metalwork: Wendell Jones; sheet metal (except hood): stainless steel, Pacific Coast Stainless
Vanessa Brunner added this to How to Design a Kitchen Island
3. How much storage do you need?A lot of this depends on your kitchen layout. If you have space for a lot of cabinetry in the kitchen, island storage may not be a priority. If this is to be your main prep area, the sink and other appliances may have to come first, but try to make room for prep utensils and cutting boards near the sink. "Typically, two 24-inch base cabinets back to back will accommodate most under-island functions," says Justrich. "But make sure that your island isn't too big, with extra space in the middle." Ahmann suggests making your island 3 feet wide, as that tends to look best — although sometimes a width of 2 feet is the best fit. The length can be as few as 4 feet, but he suggests planning for at least 7 feet if you need to accommodate a sink, a dishwasher and a cooktop.
17. Historic Queen Anne RenovationWhile Geoffrey Gainer's Queen Anne needed a new kitchen, he didn't want a faux old-fashioned or disjointed modern style to replace it. Instead, Gainer merged the kitchen and dining room, using Douglas fir shelves, cork flooring and paper-based countertops that will all show signs of gentle wear. Over time, this new kitchen will start to blend with the home's older bones.
"Everything in moderation ... including moderation."Do you love having all the things you adore close at hand? Go for it. There's no rule that says you have to be a minimalist. Set up your kitchen as a place where you can get your work done and have all the things you love around you.See the rest of this kitchen
Kathryn Peltier Design added this to Get More From Your Kitchen Island
Although this island also has shelves below, the real eye catcher is the ceiling-hung shelves, which create a bright, casual cookware display. What a visual feast for diners!
Design problems often lead to solutions that thrill both our style-seeking eyes and our sensible hearts. Check out the personal kitchen of architect Geoffrey Gainer of Actual-Size Architecture. Gainer wanted to make his modern kitchen work with his Victorian house. He did it by making a see-through “wall” of shelves that separates, yet marries, the modern and traditional spaces. He also created a storage powerhouse.

Wile I'm not as much a fan of the open shelf kitchen as some, this one almost looks like art. I do love the mix industrial and warm wood together. It could be just the thing for the space I designed for my new home where there is only room for about a narrower 1 foot cabinet without drawer space below. Open cook book shelves could go below and glass wouldn't be needed on both sides for the see-through effect I was wanting.

If cooktop remains where it is, this arrangement would give more storage space for good looking items and permit overhead vent.
