The new worktables from March are the perfect way to avoid having a monolithic kitchen, because they combine function and style to create a center island that is more like a piece of bespoke furniture. Each worktable is fully customized, though standard dimensions are typically 42 inches long, 21 inches wide, and 36 inches high. Designs include the classic Work Table, with a butcher block top and a steel base; the French Country–inspired Turned Leg Table, with a marble top and carved wooden legs; and the modern Parsons table, with an oak base and a marble or wood top. Add-ons include slatted shelves, storage bins, boxes, baskets, and hanging leather components for storing utensils. Although completely custom, the tables are mostly priced from $5,850. Each is made by hand in California and requires about a 12-week lead time.
