Other rustic kitchen island designs include wood with an antique or weathered look that adds a farm-to-table feel to the room. Freestanding kitchen islands with seating can be made from simple dark wood materials with stools placed on either side for family-style eating; this style works especially well in a rustic kitchen design.

French-style kitchens come in many styles and forms. The key to finding—or designing—the perfect French kitchen island lies in the nuances.
