Most Curated is a monthly series in which one editor, team member or friend of Livingetc will share the top 15 items on their current wish list.

Don't get me wrong—I love my Los Angeles apartment (I live 10 minutes from the beach, after all), but my one complaint is its size. It's quite tiny, especially my combined kitchen and dining area. However, now that I've lived here for three years, I've become somewhat of an expert in small-space living (at least a self-proclaimed expert, anyway). I'm extremely intentional when it comes to buying pieces for my home. Anything I add must check two important boxes: beautiful and functional. If an item also happens to be affordable, then consider me sold. Below are 15 under-$100 kitchen items I think are worth taking home.
