Bonterra design build showpiece kitchen

This kitchen by Bonterra Build | Design, in Austin, Texas, features an island topped with a 6-by-10-foot solid marble slab that took eight people an entire day to get into place. The drop edge makes the marble slab look thicker than it actually is, but even so, it’s a massive piece of stone. Other features include solid Douglas fir beams and hardwood oak floors original to the house and a 12-foot cedar ceiling. / PHOTO: TWIST TOURS; INTERIOR DESIGNER: KELLE CONTINE INTERIOR DESIGN; ARCHITECT: CORNERSTONE ARCHITECTS
