I like the half booth, half chairs kitchen table they have here. It saves some space and allows for storage beneath the booth bench. Would be an excellent sewing area. Stow the machines under the bench. Add electrical socket under bench.
Love the color scheme here--especially the island. This is a great way to pair white/gray/aqua without looking like an ice cave. light/white cabinets - lots of flush drawers, colored glass subway tile, glass door cabinets, cookbook space
