Soma Loft

Photography by Chi Fang
Custom kitchen island on castor wheels. This island adds storage and counter space to a very very small kitchen. Also acts as a slick dining table like bar area. Lots of drawers and shelves, with a butcher block top that has a folding leaf that can be up or down, hand painted.

Like this idea for a custom kitchen island on castor wheels, where can I buy - Where can I buy a custom kitchen island on castor wheels like this, or find the cabinet to put the butchers block table top on top of? Appears that the toughest challenge will be to find the right cabinet on castor wheels relative to size and configuration?

Hi Amy,
There is a mechanism that allows the extra butcher block top to go up and down. It's not a shelf. I hope that makes sense!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: Urban Jewel Box
"We designed a custom kitchen island, which sits next to the kitchen window to help define the space between the kitchen and the living room," says Faiella. "This island doubles as additional counter space for cooking, and also works as a bistro-style table to eat at." This creative product is full of useful surprises — it's on wheels and has a flap, which helps to accommodate more guests.
A design collaboration. Anastasia Faiella, founder of Faiella Design, has fielded lots of questions about this piece she made in collaboration with Jason Lees Design and decorative painter Ted Somogyi. The name of the game is aesthetics. “The paint colors were carefully selected to coordinate the kitchen with its shared dining room space,” says Faiella.While beauty is key to this design, so too is functionality. The top is butcher block, and the wheels have a locking mechanism to prevent rolling away. The drawers are accessible from the side so as not to fight with the stool.
