John Boos

Conrad Boos founded this kitchen-products company — named after his son, John — in Effingham, Illinois, in 1887. A blacksmith by trade, Conrad preferred to straighten horseshoes on sycamore tree blocks that he had a local mill create, as he found the wood absorbed the shock of his hammer. The town butcher noticed this innovation and asked for a similar block for his meat market. Thus farriery gave way to food service, and now John Boos makes kitchen supplies for chefs like Charlie Trotter and Food Network stars Mario Batali and Emeril Lagasse. Butcher blocks are still on the menu, but the company also offers cutting boards, carts, compartment sinks and bar stools in food service-grade stainless steel and, where appropriate, northern hard rock maple.

With that image as our inspiration, we picked a range of furnishings and accents designed to complement the visual drama and sweeping vistas that an apartment in the sky affords.

John Boos

Farriery gave way to food service for this 120-year-old company’s founder, whose preference for smithing horseshoes on a wooden block (because it better absorbed his hammer’s shock) sparked a second career manufacturing butcher-block tables and cutting boards — now a favorite amongst celebrity chefs. Shop this sale for those chopping blocks and much more, including prep carts with 100 percent maple tops. (We've also got some inspired culinary options here, to get you started...)
