Nowadays, this luxury wood essence is back in the kitchens with contemporary lines that still offer this wonderful veneers and colors.

The contrasting patterns of marble floor and walnut panels is seducing. What do you think of the one piece kitchen island/table?

This family kitchen offers a warm and friendly look. The minimalistic walnut cabinet doors keep it modern and elegant. The pendant lights and Bertoia stools add a great style.

Love the natural lighting and contrast of neutrals. Look how the cabinets supports the expansive white walls. The walnut background panel behind the shelves is a great idea!
