Using Martha's Bedford home as its inspiration, the set of "The Martha Stewart Show" was designed with beauty and functionality in mind. The result: the feel of a loft in the city blended with a sense of home.
Unlike many television studios, "The Martha Stewart Show" set features a fully functional kitchen. Everything from the adjustable shelving in the island to the marble countertops is exactly the same as it is in Martha's own kitchen.

The grouping of like items in bowls, on shelves, or hanging from racks is visually pleasing and keeps things organized. Inside the drawers, clear dividers, grip matting, and, of course, Brother P-Touch labels ensure everything is kept in place.
Stainless steel appliances and clean lines offer a modern feel to the kitchen, while small touches such as exposed-bulb overhead lights add character -- the exposed bulbs also happen to be a design element that Martha likes.
