West Meets East

This kitchen island certainly is hopping, in a functional sense. The more-than-substantial cutting board is well placed over a mixer garage [I think that its drop-down tambour door is rather clever]. The warming drawer is handy for proofing dough. With its glass-enclosed rice paper door panels and tansu-influenced wooden modules, the cabinetry is an appealing update of an Asian theme. Or is it a Far Eastern treatment of a modern look? Either way, the Madison collection caught my eye today. mwf.com
