In a young couple's Brussels home designed by architect Frederic Haesevoets, the modern kitchen island is by Bulthau. The vent hood is by AEG, the stools are by and the hanging light fixtures are by Ionna Vautrin.
Interesting idea for kitchen and dining room. Island with a bench seat attached for the table. Might have to do something similar in my new place to save room for chairs. Under the bench seat could be storage for rarely used items.
