Hey contemporist friends! Here’s something to think about if you’re ever working on the design of your kitchen. Thishome by architectMichael Patroni and interiordesignerSalvatore Fazzari has a good example of how to give a kitchen island a floatingeffect.
Instead of bringing the base of a kitchen island all the way to the floor, you can give it a recessed undercut, which on its own gives it a bit of a floating feeling, but then you can improve the floating effect even more by using a dark material on the base that contrasts with the light material on top. Now your island is floating!
