Hollywood Revival Nook

This small penthouse apartment was given a wonderful nook space by creating a half moon glass bar height table perched above the cooktop island, supported with standoffs and a custom 'cigarette' base of wenge veneer. Custom swivel barstools with nickel footrests top off the fabulous spot, with swarovski crystal pendants creating both light and a bit of glamour above.

Island - Where can I purchase an island like that with the raised glass table top? It's beautiful

I'm so glad you like it, Paula! It is not an island nook element that can be purchased, however, it is something that must be designed and custom fabricated to suit the needs of the area, spatially and aesthetically in regard to the type of design the homeowner desires, and then meticulously fabricated.
Since this was for a Hollywood inspired penthouse I designed a 'cigarette' style tapered base and had that fabricated by one of our custom furniture fabricators. They cleated the base into the porcelain floor for stability. We determined the precisely appropriate half moon size for the table top and made sure it would finish at 42" (bar height) off the floor with the thickness of the glass. We had a hole drilled at the precise spot in the glass that would allow for sufficient strength for the top, yet provide an overhang of the glass onto the island itself, and then we affixed the glass to the cigarette base with a long screw that was drilled into the strongest point of the base, with a screw on the top end, as well, on which we had a finished circular satin nickel finish element. For additional security, we had 'standoff' satin nickel poles that went from the ends of the straight side of the half moon down to the stone top of the island. These were similarly attached on the glass top with smaller satin nickel decorative discs that concealed the screw that went into the granite of the island top.
We designers must know how to engineer beautiful things that we want to have built, too! Of course we consult our experts, but we have learned long since that creating something unusual and creative often takes a great deal of ingenuity and know how!

Hi! Are these barstools $980 for the three of them?

No, the pricing is for each stool. They are custom designed pieces with faux leather so luxurious it is difficult to discern that it is not the real thing, and the bottom rails are brushed nickel, The net cost is less than it cost me to have them fabricated by the custom fabricator
