Sure! This cocktail table comes from Henredon. It has a wonderful mottled metal leg structure with the wood shelves.

Hello! This room is 17' wide and 18' to the back of the sofa. What you don't see in the photo is the space behind the sofa. The entrance is on the back left side as you are facing the screen. It is an angled wall with double doors. The components are in a closet area behind the sofa. This closet is set 6' back from the sofa. I hope that helps! Have a wonderful day.

Greetings! I love how this island curves so when people are seated at it they aren't all lined up in a straight row. This makes for better interaction and conversation in addition to a softer traffic pattern around the island. The length of the island is 96" and the width is 60 1/2". Have fun with your project!

I love the curves too! This is what we are planning to do with our island to allow for better traffic patterns in our kitchen. It is beautiful!

Hello! I haven't pursued that avenue. I have met people from HOUZZ and they are very approachable and willing to help with questions. I would contact them for ideas. Have a great day!

I love the wide planks. It reminds me of a Walnut project we just completed. The client wanted 8" wide planks :-)

Hello! Thank you for your inquiry. Isn't this gorgeous? The stone mason went to a quarry in Montana to select the stones for this entire home. I unfortunately don't know the name of the quarry.
