Bowling Alley Island

sticks and bricks bowling alley island

 

This may not have been our first bowling alley island, but it was certainly our largest!

This custom project was centered around a huge piece of beautifully preserved bowling lane which feautures seven perfect darts. Liz incorporated modern and industrial details to pull the piece together, including galvanized pipe and matching wooden dowels.

At nearly 5.5 ft long and 3.5 ft wide, this counter height work desk is a one of a kind custom piece, much like our previous bowling alley islands, but we have good news! This look can be recreated using new butcher block countertops in varying sizes and with varying base styles, too!

Bowling Lane Island

Leave it to Liz to find a bowling lane and think kitchen island! At nearly 7 feet, this island has industrial metal legs, a shallow bottom shelf, and of course, an original toe line. Bowling balls not included…
While this is a one of a kind piece using a vintage bowling lane, we often recreate this look using new butcher block. Ask us about ordering your own custom butcher block island!

Coca-Cola Kitchen Island

SOLD

Custom kitchen island designed to include and complement the client’s family heirloom, which include vintage Coca-Cola crates and ephemera. Made with rustic barn-boards that sport a red undertone and match the Coca-Cola crate drawers.
From the client:

“My dad invented the first plastic carbonated beverage container- before that it was always in glass, which broke in transit, was very heavy, and costly to transport. My dad invented the formula that allowed them to figure out the permeability of plastics… It happened to be that the client was Coca-Cola.

My father has gotten rid of much of his collection, but when I was over there I saw this beautiful wooden crate… This one was so nice because it wasn’t the typical bright red- it was just a beautiful wood tone, but you could still see the red “Coca-Cola,” very faded.

I wanted to bring something “Coca-Cola” into my kitchen, because it was such an important part of my parents life, collecting antique Coca-Cola memorabilia. The finished piece incorporates the wood from the barn boards, it incorporates the red of the boards, and it worked out really nice.”
