Giving a brand-new kitchen timeless character and rich personality is a challenge for the best architects and designers. One way to solve this problem is by repurposing a furniture piece for the workspace — but it’s not always easy to find the right fit, as architect Jeff Troyer discovered. He says: “We searched for months for the kitchen island, seeking something with warmth and character that would also fit the space. My clients and I finally found this antique school science lab table online and had it shipped from Ohio. We had to purchase this sight unseen, but it ended up fitting perfectly and the wood is beautiful.”
