Steal This Look: The Ultimate Staff Kitchen in New York


Steal This Look: The Ultimate Staff Kitchen in New York

September 6, 2016

When designing a workspace, the staff kitchen is often an afterthought, another space to tackle just as budgets have dried up. Not so at Food52’s New York office, designed by Brad Sherman and Nina Etnier of Brad Sherman Workshop. The stylish kitchen is surprisingly affordable when dissected into its key elements. Here, we look at the sources the designers used to pull the look together.
