Mahogany Butcher Block Table for House Beautiful KOTY 2011 New York designed by Tyler Florence

Few know more than Tyler Lawrence about how to properly equip a kitchen. That is partly why we’re pleased to put the spotlight back on our beautiful mahogany butcher block table, by his design.

Tyler Florence: A Brief Background

Aside from Mr. Florence’s experience as a chef and restauranteur, which spans from New York to the successful launch of Bar Florence at Hotel Vertigo in San Francisco, and includes his occasional work in the world of restaurant concept development, he currently heads a thriving luxury restaurant supplier in Northern California.

His extensive background also has entailed partnering with key figures in the entertainment industry, his appearance on a number of culinary programs, and his directorial debut in 2018 of Uncrashable, a documentary that provided first-hand accounts of the 2017 wildfires in California.

Quality and Utility in Kitchen Design

At Grothouse, we make tables that are beautiful. But our customers also expect utility, practicality, durability, and efficiency to be core considerations in their kitchen layout, and sometimes they also want something truly unique.

This is why it’s so valuable for us to connect with leading chefs. It gives us direct, expert feedback that can go a long way, as happened when we partnered with Mr. Lawrence to design the ultimate butcher block,

Our Tyler Florence Mahogany Buther Block Table

So, let’s take a moment to look into his unique design. To begin with, it is all solid wood, mahogany construction. It has five drawers for convenient storage, and its 150 lb rated under-mount drawer slides with a soft close. It also comes with custom laser engraving or logo engraving, as seen below.

The table has integrated knife slots for easy knife storage, as well as 500lb rated casters, for heavy-duty use and plenty of mobility. In addition, it comes with an initial coat of our Grothouse Original Oil on the chopping surface as well as our lifetime-rated Durata® Finish on the base. It is available in your choice of 35 (Satin) or 10 (Flat) Sheens.

While we often encourage customers to explore various options and come up with custom designs of their own, in cases like this, the vision of a particularly keen chef and designer sometimes nonetheless makes for the perfect fit.
