Spice, Slice and Stripes

This set of kitchen furniture was designed by Fiona Campbell Furniture for, and with a local customer. They wanted a versatile kitchen island that would allow different types of storage and act as a kitchen table for eating suppers. It was to become the hub of the kitchen. The walnut strips flow through the stools, handles and top giving continuity. It is set on four castors so that it can be wheeled in and out of the kitchen. This piece was a joy to make.
