It's a counter, cabinet, and table.

Like a piece in a jigsaw puzzle, this small kitchen island mimics the angles of an odd-shaped breakfast nook. Built by Los Angeles woodworker Alan Pomerantz for Tom Hartmann of South Pasadena, the island replaced a round table that forced people to squeeze awkwardly around the kitchen counters to get into their chairs.

Its functional design offers plenty of workspace and enough room for three to sit down to a meal. Built of birch plywood with a removable cutting-board insert, the island has cupboards below for glasses and plates. The top extends on to sides so that knees don't bump the base.
