Would not want that cabinet above my head in kitchen #2. Just asking for a bump on the head. Ouch! Otherwise, nice uses of space.

What a great article, Erin! There are so many wonderful designs in here! Definitely, midcentury modern pieces like the Eames molded chairs or the tulip table are perfect for a cozy kitchen because they're versatile and allow you to save valuable leg room and also look beautiful!
