''The Martha Stewart Show'' Set Tour
An Early Rendering of the Set
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.

Crafts Room Details
Whether it's a featured craft from the show or a display of vintage bottles and bread boxes, everything on the set serves to offer inspiration. Flowers in the floral fridge change up weekly and are used for arrangements on the show as well as for dressing rooms.
Supplies for gardening segments and for the greenhouse are organized in thoughtfully designed shelving, which includes a convenient pot rack drawer.
The enviable view seen behind the greenhouse, and throughout the set, is a panoramic view of Manhattan, photographed from the roof of Martha's offices down the street from the studio.
Images of Martha and her latest projects line the walls of this simply furnished room where members of the audience wait before being seated upstairs. Here, they receive final instructions from the audience team and get warmed up by comic Joey Kola before show time.
