The large oval table and classic chairs, logs of wood lining the walls and colorful tile floorings, have created this fun and unusual environment through contrasting each other.

Tiles are another preferred material in kitchen designs. Here, the same patterns are used to decorate the edges and walls so a more uniformed and distinct theme can be presented. The gas stove, built-in hood and wooden cupboards complete the look of the classic-style kitchen.
