The wood top is made of walnut lumber squares, with the grain rotated on each piece to give it the checkerboard look.

Yes, I think YLighting could be the source. I also have wooden ceiling and floor with boards perpendicular -- maybe why I like these lights.

They were bought at Design within Reach in Berkeley. A little on the pricey side

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to A Mid-Century Style Home Provides Comfortable Minimalism
In the kitchen, the checkered wood island becomes a prime location for communal dining. Accessories, like the simple white pottery and pendant lights, allow your eyes to rest comfortably in the space and to also notice the planked ceilings and the custom felt slipcovers on each chair.
Lily Gahagan added this to Idea of the Week: Barstool Cozies
The designers used felt to make custom jackets for Blu Dot's counterstools. Want your own? Felt is a forgiving fabric, making it the perfect medium for novice crafters. Or, employ a seamstress to make them for you. See the rest of the house: A Mid-Century Style Home Provides Comfortable Minimalism
Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to Take a Seat at the New Kitchen-Table Island
This terrific square island, complete with butcherblock countertop, doubles as a kitchen table with seating for 8.
John Hill added this to Design Details: Framing Views
The kitchen/dining area recalls the cabin presented earlier, yet here the design takes advantage of the corner location. A square window (left) frames the trees, while the horizontal window (right) looks into the distance at the snow drift and a small building.
Shawn Gauthier added this to 16 Ways to Check In to Checkered Patterns
15. Kitchen countertop There are too many things I love about this island, and the checkered finish is only the beginning. Everyone tends to hang out in the kitchen, and utilizing an island as an actual seating space allows you to use it for both meal preparation and actually eating the meal. Besides, with everyone congregating in the kitchen, you might be able to sucker someone into chopping the onions.
Becky Harris added this to 20 of the Coziest Kitchens Around
While we might not usually associate a kitchen full of clean modern lines with coziness, this kitchen is a perfect spot to warm up with some cocoa after a day of playing in the snow. Even the barstools are wearing snuggly cozies.
