Like so many of us, Amy Schumer is using quarantine as an opportunity to learn how to cook. With a self-proclaimed mediocre skill set, she leans on her husband, Chris Fischer (a professional chef), to teach her culinary tricks on their new Food Network show, Amy Schumer Learns to Cook. Schumer puts it best: “It’s empowering and a little scary doing something you don’t know how to do. Also scary because it’s dangerous.” Season two debuts tonight, with the first episode focusing on fresh versions of frozen meals.

While we’re excited to see one of our favorite comedians attempt gourmet pigs in a blanket, we also can’t help but feel inspired by the couple’s industrial shelves. It makes sense, given Fischer’s profession, that their kitchen would feel like the perfect marriage between a restaurant-grade setup and a personalized haven (notice the art on the knife bar?). The wide ledges leave plenty of room for storage and organization, which, when you’re cooking for a living, is necessary to keep your tools readily available. The shelving also include hooks for hanging pans within easy reach.

Schumer and Fischer’s home proves that an industrial setup doesn’t have to feel cold and sterile—when combined with warmer moments, like the wood island, it can lend a sense of expertise to the space. If you want to get the look, most commonplace home stores (including Home Depot, Wayfair, and Amazon) carry similar products to bring a touch of the big leagues to your humble abode.
