For all of you who wish you had just a little bit more counter space, I present you with Autour by St. Charles of New York. The concept is pretty great: instead of redesigning your entire kitchen, you add a butcher-block-topped counter to what you’ve already got. I like that the shape allows your kitchen helpers or cocktail party guests a place to park themselves while you cook, or to help with some prep while not being in the way.

    This is one of the best design ideas I've seen in a while! I like the interesting shape and the sturdy curved legs, and extra storage is always a bonus.

    I really like it but there is no info on price, etc. Can anyone help.

    Nice idea but it looks like it takes away the area of the countertop and replaces it with about the same space because you lost some area with the curves. The storage is a nice idea as well…the shape is too odd.

    this is a great shape and love that glasses fit in the storage area. Great way to end a working island space too.
