A Non-Kitchen, Kitchen

We've seen kitchens go to the other extreme--sterile and utilitarian.  I think it's time for a little warmth.  After all, don't we all end up in the kitchen anyway? 

Here's my proposal: a real room that just happens to have a kitchen inside!  Take a look at this Charlotte, North Carolina kitchen.  I think this is WONDERFUL!  Join me for a cup of coffee at the zinc covered table, won't you? 

How amazingly clever is this?   

Who would have ever guessed?

Now, what are your kitchen "must haves"?  It can be anything - from your grandmother's iron skillet to the ice maker?
