Henrybuilt and Viola Park rank high on our list of great, modern kitchen systems (a list that includes the likes of Snaidero, Berloni, Scavolini, Pedini, Boffi, Poliform, and Bulthaup to name just a very few). This week, the company announced its latest offering: three, new kitchen islands.

The unit features to open-end shelves acting at either end as legs and like each model is this new line comes either fully assembled or as a kit to put together yourself. Though Viola Park is Henrybuilt Corporation's modular line (whereas Henrybuilt kitchens are entirely customizable), there still are quite a few options. The B series of islands can be topped with Corian, Paperstone, or stainless steel and are available in 24-inch, 30-inch, or 36-inch widths and up to 11 feet in length.
