ZINC: This is a little bit special which will ooze more and more character over the years as it ages. The zinc is hand-rolled onto each table before being hammered into place on top of the sand-blasted wooden legs. Seen here with our Café au Lait kitchen chairs and Geronimo chair. Looks great with our Hans kitchen chairs and our Blast stool.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
4. They can boost the casual relaxed feel of an airy interior Done right, modern coastal style has to be one of the most “come in and kick off your shoes” looks for a home, and this pale yet interesting kitchen proves the point perfectly. Those wide, pale boards, the painted panelling on the walls, the soft, sun-bleached colours, the vintage radio… It’s a scene that just invites you to sit and slow down.A risk with this sort of look is that it can border on twee. Here, it’s not only the zinc tabletop and industrial-style pendants that take away any sugar-coating, but also the well-chosen and non-matching chairs. Go for designs in the same colour and you’ll lose none of the airy minimalism.
Top your tableBy their nature, islands tend to be blocky and monolithic. Consequently, an interesting worktop risks getting ‘lost’. By contrast, this zinc-topped table makes an appealing addition to all the white and wood in this charming kitchen – and very much adds to the room’s cottagey appeal.
