Roundhouse Design's kitchen cabinetry island blends LED with a recessed base - creating a sense of a floating island. It's paired with an Applewood book-matched veneer cabinet wall, with a floating credenza and shelves in an inset.

The matte lacquer Apple wood book-matched veneer Metro kitchen, profile by Houzz and featured at Roundhouse's website, has Gaggenau ovens and a 10-shelf integrated wine storage unit (with a right hand hinge that is reversible.

The island is finished in High Gloss Signal White with White Fantasy granite countertop. Sharknose profile, leather finish quartz work surface and Barazza3 gas burners & triple ring 1PLB3TI.

The lighted recessed toe-kick turns up in another kitchen island project. And the gloss laminate appears in a pair of floor to  ceiling bedroom closet projects in one home.

The Malvern, U.K. custom cabinet builder won a Best of Houzz 2015 citation. 

"All Roundhouse furniture is made to order at our own factory in Malvern by our cabinet-makers and other specialists," the company says. "Our expert craftsmen bridge the gap between centuries-old traditions of workmanship and the latest technical innovations, combining unique joinery skills and state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques."

Roundhouse says it uses only those woods that meet the standards of FSC accreditation, and it has a tree-planting scheme in place, "to put back for tomorrow what we take out of our environment today."
