Used for storage and as a breakfast bar, the olive ash veneer island is a sleek piece of freestanding furniture.The open display shelving has been crafted from the same olive ash timber. The island's grain runs continuously around the unit and adds to its grand aspect. Recessed stainless-steel plinths give it a floating appearance, while walls and woodwork painted in neutral shades create a sense of height.
