In our latest lookbook, we are showcasing eight contemporary kitchens that feature islands with waterfall countertops made from concrete, stone, and chunky terrazzo. The waterfall edge, also known as a mitred end, creates a seamless flow from the countertop to the ground, adding a sleek and modern touch to these kitchens.
Marble and concrete are the materials of choice for creating these sculptural and monolithic centrepieces. The use of these materials adds a sense of timelessness and elegance to the overall design.
