It features a custom notch gilded with our Anvil™ Magnum metal finish and two faux bowties also finished with Anvil™ Magnum. One end of the island incudes a pet station. The other end features a custom edge grain Saxon Wood™ cutting board with a drop lip front edge and a leather handle. Click here to learn more about House Beautiful Whole Home Concept House 2020.
