    Now you have me intrigued by the talk of these stones. Thanks for the photo of the Luserna, I'd imagine the oxidized version of it is beautiful. It makes sense to me to use that for your counters since you have so much gray stone in your home already.

    We never see slate used for counters in the US, almost never at any rate. You've given me something new to research, thank you.

    You live in a beautiful part of the world by the way and I'll be in the Italian Piedmont in September of this year.

    Thanks for your input. Let us know when you are here. By September, fingers crossed, our house renovation should be finished. My email is drop a line when you know you will be in the region.

    btw: the black slate when used as kitchen counter looks just like the photo at the top of this page.

    Hi there. Sorry for my delay in getting back to you, I've been on the road again. That kitchen is made by a German manufacturer, Göhring, and they don't distribute in the US. The cabinets shown are made from clear, center-cut, German beech. German beech is different from the beech available in the US but a good custom cabinet shop could make you something very similar to this with good-quality birch. This kitchen was highly engineered despite its simple appearance. You can see more shots of it on the manufacturer's website here: Click on the word "Kochen."

Kitchens that integrate into the rest of the home are big — huge — in Europe right now. Every kitchen seemed designed specifically to blend into the rooms that surround it.
