To make this charming kitchen as functional as possible, interior designer Linda Woodrum opted for a triangle-style workspace. “When I think of smart design, I think of wisely designing a home that functions well on a high level, so that’s what Kelly Mockingbird, the design coordinator, and I tried to do through this whole process,” explains Linda. “It works well. Everything is in that small triangle, and it’s just very usable and functional.”

Instead of springing for a built-in island, consider a freestanding one made from recycled materials. Case in point: the Industrial Recycled High Bench Table, shown in Shabby Chic White, $1,999, designed by Will Marx for GHIFY. Handmade in Brisbane, Australia, of native Australian timber, the design was inspired by the architecture of Queensland. Says GHIFY, “This island is one of our signature designs, which has been hugely popular as a kitchen island for added counter space, as a high bench dining table for the eat-in kitchen and as a workbench/desk. It is a timeless industrial recycled styled table that can be custom-built to any size, color or finish. Each table comes with a 10-year warranty.”
