Eli & Jennifer's Mixed Materials Kitchen

Eli and Jennifer's Brooklyn brownstone features a surprising mix of modern and antique elements, particularly in the kitchen where you'll find exposed brick, a raw brass kitchen faucet (constructed from pieces sourced from a local plumbing supply house), marble countertops, and a wood-burning fireplace!

Jennifer tells Apartment Therapy they "cook a ton in this kitchen" and that "it's fairly easy to bring things out of the fridge across the island to the sink or the stove, and all these distances are small enough that you hardly notice that it's a kitchen triangle with a big stone rectangle smack in the middle." They've had 4 or 5 people working in the kitchen at once "without any disasters or hurt toes or feelings."
