Steal This Look: A Gallery-Like Family Kitchen in Brooklyn

We recently featured Shapeless Studio’s Clinton Hill project, where an original 1867 Italianate structure is just starting its remodeling journey. The architects’ take on the parlor floor includes a simple and elegant kitchen complete with a solid oak bar; here, we detail the key elements to recreate the look.
