Pantries, Carts and Islands

Pantries, carts and islands offer great ways to add storage and functionality to your kitchen. To find the best item for you, consider your needs and available space.

Kitchen Islands Are Like People Magnets

The kitchen is where families convene to share physical, as well as spiritual, sustenance. And kitchen islands are where friends gather to share a pot of coffee along with news of the day. But moving at today’s hectic pace, sometimes we only briefly catch a glimpse of those we love most as we scurry around the kitchen island, like ships passing in the night. And just as ships sometimes seek safe harbor from a storm, we too occasionally seek a calm port – a peaceful island in the midst of turbulence. That’s where a kitchen island or a large kitchen cart can prove invaluable. Just as magnets attract iron, kitchen islands and carts draw people near.
