Vermont Islands commercial bars, carts and islands are available in many different finishes, facades and configurations. Our Signature Series Islands are the standard for outdoor applications. Most Vermont Islands can be modified with alternate Custom Facades and Finishes.
Vermont Islands Interior bars, islands and carts can also be modified with alternate Custom Facades and Finishes in addition to regular wood stain finishes. Visit our Interior page for more information.
Signature Series Vermont Islands outdoor bars, outdoor grills and outdoor food service islands and carts are made from 1" x 4" V-groove vertical Tongue & Groove Ipe (ironwood), finished with Penofin Marine Oil (pictured left). If left untreated, Ipe will weather and fade over time as shown (right). Topped with polished granite and outfitted with stainless steel appliances, Ipe Signature Series Islands are designed and built specifically to stand up to the outdoors in any climate.
Horizontal 1" x 4" eased-edge Ipe applied over a dark brown (left) or white (right) HDO structural frame (Euro-Form HDO is a dimensionally and structurally stable plywood superior to regular plywoods). Boards are mounted to spacer blocks for a 3D effect. The bar set shown (below right) has horizontal 1" x 4" Ipe mounted to white acrylic panels with back-lighting - the entire bars glows at night for a stunning effect.
Islands made from anodized aluminum frames with acrylic insert panels are a classy and attractive alternative to the standard Ipe Signature Series Islands. They can be used outdoors as well as indoors for added versatility. Choose from a wide variety of insert panel options including translucent colors, geometric designs and organic inlays from 3-Form. Most designs can be back-lit for night-time ambiance.
Vermont Islands can also be made from Stainless Steel instead of Ipe. We bond type 304 Stainless Steel to 3/4" structural HDO plywood cabinet boxes. Counter top options range from traditional granite to solid surface materials and engineered stone.
Hard-coat epoxy, powder-coated steel and PVC wainscoting are options for when special colors are needed. Virtually any color scheme can be matched and applied to all Vermont Islands models.
For a natural, tropical look Vermont Islands are available with natural bamboo fascia. Real bamboo is applied to a structural plywood cabinet box. Doors and trim pieces are made from Ipe. Consider a Tiki roof for Bamboo Islands needing a canopy.
Stone and tile facades and countertops can be combined with Ipe and structural plywood cabinets to match existing decor or create a unique look.
