Sleek & Unique: Crafty Sailboat-Shaped Kitchen Built-Ins

When is a kitchen island not an island? When it is a sailboat! No? Not funny? OK, then we will skip the one about it being ‘shipshape’ too, and perhaps the one about its ‘streamlined’ shape as well.

This series of designs from Alno embodies nautical sources of inspiration, seen most clearly in the island but also present in the supplementary cabinet sets that smoothly arc out from the walls and glide back into them.

The centerpiece island serves as a flagship, if you will, anchoring the design, while its curve encourage cooking and interacting activity around its edges, and participation in the middle – all hands on deck!
