Chockablock Chopping Block

Flip open the top of this ye-olde-style kitchen island and you might be surprised at its modern, multi-tasking details. The lid is deep enough to hold a roll of paper towels; knives and assorted cook's tools have their own secured compartments. The pull-out cutting board is a serviceable annex to both the wooden work surface and the marble pastry slab in the interior. I think this is a great concept, and would be quite wonderful if rendered as a contemporary design.
