Métier Cook's Supply

When Todd and Jess from Lenoir were given the opportunity to take over the sweet space next to their restaurant on South First, they jumped on it as fast as they could. The space had been used for a great many things over the years, and the two enlisted us to help us transform it into the shop of their dreams.

Métier Cook's Supply was, simply, a shop for chefs. They carried the best in kitchen supplies for any kind of cook, professional or of the home variety. Their selection of cookbooks, new and old, was unparalleled.

Our goal was to peel back the layers and reveal the bones of the original structure while creating a unique shopping experience. We wanted it to feel like home, like a place you could sit for hours and pore over books or discover new treasures.

Sadly, Métier closed its doors in the summer of 2017. But all endings make way for new beginnings, and this one makes space for Lenoir to grow.
