Designed by Scott Dresner of Dresner Design in collaboration with Studio CJF, this Chicago redesign accommodates an airy kitchen plus a functional living and working space.
For the island itself, the function-forward design features space for two stools and storage on both sides, as well as appliances and a sink on the service side.
White quartz countertops complement two differently finished cabinets – naturally finished on the lower and white high-gloss acrylic on the upper.
“The island is designed typical to my style with a stone drop edge because it makes the cabinets last longer and feels more high end,” said Dresner.
A sleek pendant with nine translucent light bulbs then illuminates the island, giving the prep area a fluid appearance.
