Lab-Like Loft Kitchen

Create a sleek restaurant-style space with reclaimed vintage stainless steel pieces.

Made from a rebuilt shop table, topped with butcher block, and surrounded by drafting stools, the kitchen island is the focal point in this industrial-looking space. An eye-catching dentist lamp hung over it can be repositioned easily with its hydraulic arm. The upper cabinets — from a lab — are backed and clad with stainless steel to strengthen them and tie them with the lower cabinets. With its 11-foot ceilings, painted brick wall and factory windows, its hard to believe this kitchen was designed a decade ago.
