This Nantucket Kitchen Island is constructed of solids and engineered woods in a Sanded and Distressed Black Finish. Features include black granite inlay top, drop leaf, adjustable shelves on sides, storage drawer and adjustable shelves behind doors. Add needed counter space for prepping food, chopping vegetables and other cooking tasks with this handsome island. With lots of room for storing cookware and other supplies out of sight, this island is a fabulous addition to any kitchen. It can also double as a breakfast counter with the addition of seating.
I am in LOVE with this island! I recently moved in with my boyfriend and he had minimal storage and no island in the kitchen, so I immediately went on the hunt for something that would be affordable and look nice. This island was perfect. The quality is great and I love the way it looks. Most of my furniture is from Crate and Barrel and Room and Board and this meshed perfectly with it.
The only negative, and the reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5, is because it was difficult to assemble. There were some screws missing and at some points the directions were not quite clear. In addition, the top is granite and extremely heavy so you really need 3 people to install the top (2 to lift and 1 to guide it into the holes and make sure it is level).
Overall it is a great product and I would highly recommend!

I just purchased an older home and the kitchen is not very efficient. My plan was to put the Nantucket Island on castors so I could move it around and have more counter space wherever I needed it. And still be able to drop the 'breakfast bar' leaf and push it against a wall to open up more floor space. The island arrived in 2 large, very heavy boxes. I dragged one into my hallway but couldn't manage the other one until my husband came home from work.
The instructions were very good. The wood is very heavy and well manufactured. All the connections lined up easily. It will last a very long time. I really enjoy putting things together so building the island was fun. However, I could not manipulate it by myself, once it was mostly assembled due to the density of the wood.
Following the instructions, I opened the 2nd box with the granite top AFTER the base was almost finished. I needed help to even tilt the top so I could get a few of the base pieces out from under it. Then I needed to have 3 friends come over to help us lift the top onto the base while lining up the pegs and lock nuts. When we finally uncovered the top which had foam sheeting over it to protect it from scratching, I found that the granite was cracked. We put it on anyway so I could clean up the mess that had been on the kitchen floor for days. And I left an email for customer service requesting a new top. The next day I received a reply stating another top was being shipped to me. It arrived 3 days later.
The Island comes with leveling 'feet'. And the blocks of wood attached to the bottom weren't large enough to attach castors. My husband come up with the brilliant idea of buying a flat dolly on wheels to put underneath the Island. The Island has a decorative 'skirt' trim at the bottom so you can't see the dolly or even the feet, at all. The dolly hold 1,000 pounds so it's very secure and moves on the tile floor very easily. It doesn't exactly fit the inner measurements of the Island, but due to the weight of the Island, it doesn't slide around unless it catches on a grout line in the floor. And even then, it doesn't tip or anything. I can just hear it slid against the bottom of the Island. It would be really great if they added the option of having castors on the bottom.
The Island is beautiful I think it adds a lot to my kitchen. We had a few friends over last night and everyone thought it was a great looking piece of furniture and a terrific addition to the kitchen.
Great new look for my kitchen! Quality more than expected!
Did have a friend help with assembling..but no problem putting together!
Island top very heavy, but did click in when dropped in. Very happy with
The only negative, it's a little higher than my counter. I should have measured,
But I do love it!.
The wood has multiple divets in in which are likely due to the machine that made it. My granite was also chipped on one edge, but after spending 4-5 hours putting it together, we are not sending it back. Other than those two flaws, the table looks great- just like the picture, and functions well.
The packaging for shipping was excellent. The directions for assembly had a lot to be desired. The heaviness of each piece added to the difficulty of putting it together. I used a 18 volt screwdriver which I highly recommend. It looks really nice and is a perfect fit for where I am using it. It is literally the center of my kitchen. The drawer pulls look great with my stainless steel appliances.There's lots of storage inside, The drawer is huge and the shelving on the ends makes a perfect place for coffee or latte mugs. I am very happy with one small exception. There are two large metal cogs that show on the back side of the island.near where there could have been a foot rest. It would have been nice to have some black plastic plugs to cover them. Instead I dabbed a bit of black paint which worked Okay.
FIrst and foremost, this pieces is HEAVY. You'll definitely need someone to help you unpack and assemble it. I can usually attempt things like this on my own, but not this piece! It will take a few hours to put it together, but once it is finished it is a gorgeous piece. Looks fantastic in my kitchen! I also bought the matching pantry. Overall, very nice sturdy and quality pieces for your home. I would absolutely recommend purchasing!!
AWESOME! This kitchen island has surpassed expectations. I have purchased furniture on line before and a big concern is the packing. This item is the best packed item ever. Encased in plywood, then styrofoam, then non scratch liners, it took awhile just to unpack the pieces and nothing was broken or even scratched. The outside of the cardboard shipping boxes were very dented by the shipping company and still the contents were perfect!
The construction materials of the island is top notch and the drawer, shelves, and doors are wonderful. The granite top was sealed into the top so I didn't worry about it falling out during assembly. After assembly which took awhile, the product is better and has more features than islands I priced in custom furniture stores. It was also at least half the price. I went with the dark color and it looks great. I'm very happy with this kitchen island.
