Steal This Look: A Chef’s Industrial Kitchen in Los Angeles

April 17, 2018

Chef Joan McNamara of Joan’s on Third in Los Angeles lives a few blocks down from her West Third Street restaurant in a bright, industrial loft. Her enviable kitchen, sandwiched between living and dining areas, features both marble and stainless steel countertops and is clearly chef-designed (see the line up of copper saucepans for proof). To replicate the look, we’ve detailed some of the kitchen’s key design elements below.
