Lifestyles of the Equipped and Plated
It was a January 8th like any other when Kim Kardashian broke my Instagram.
Let me explain. I do not follow Kim Kardashian on Instagram. My Instagram is sacred. All the people I follow, I have met. In real life.
However, on January 8th, Kim Kardashian shared a live walk through her nearly-empty home refrigerator. Hers holds only liquids, including at least five variations on milk – or is it mylk? Reactions, as one might expect, ranged from inexplicably fascinated to… explicably appalled.
Responding to the trolls and naysayers claiming the fridge lacked substance, Mrs. Kardashian West offered a full explanation the following day. This time, she took the adoring public on a tour of her custom walk-in. The single home refrigerator was in fact, not her exhaustive home refrigeration solution.
I received dozens of direct messages about a detailed tour available on her IG story. Truly, I was now fascinated. Anyone familiar with walk-in procurement and installation would be. Kim K’s model is on par with a restaurant’s size and scope, reminding us that stars… they’re just like us.
When I moved out of my one-bedroom apartment in New York City (smaller than KKW’s walk-in), Jamie and I envisioned what our ‘plate room’ would look like before signing our mortgage.
While I haven’t previously taken to sharing my ‘she-shed’ with the world, Mrs. Kardashian West has inspired me. Fitted with perfectly measured Cambro shelving, here is what you will currently find during a tour of my ‘plate room’:
Linea Umana by Rona (coming soon), Finesse by Nude Glass (a classic), Hepburn by Nude (a new classic – Nude’s design foray).
Canvas by Robert Gordon Pottery, SERAX accessories, a rainbow of mugs by Felt + Fat, and an arsenal of Figgjo large format vessels.
Fiddle Vintage by Studio William. Hannah by Sambonet. Bistrot by Sabre Paris. Opinel Steak Knives.
Pans by Hestan. Pots by Agnelli. And lots of Revol.
To set the table, Casa Rovea sustainable linens.
Interested in taking a tour? No, this is not a pitch meeting for Cribs: Foodservice Professionals (which I’d love to host). The International Restaurant and Foodservice Show of New York will take place on March 8-10th at the Javits Center and you can tour all our most cherished partners in tabletop, and more at booth 1613.
