Last month I gushed over the French La Canache stove, and having mistakenly included an image of La Cornue stove as well, I quickly learned there are two revered French stoves available to dream about and potentially, eventually include in our kitchens.
La Cornue stove company was established in Paris in 1908, and as you can see from these and many other images, they are pieces of art. While many of these stoves can be found in grand estates and manses, some of the images I included in today’s post find a single La Cornue oven in a traditional or cottage style home. What I love about welcoming in such grand French luxury into a small space is that, much like a quality pair of shoes with an effortless look, it elevates the entire space immediately.
Have a look at the images in today’s Decor Inspiration post (the above kitchen is Julianne Moore’s home in NYC), and discover a variety of different colors and sizes (shop all sizes and colors here), as well as a recognition that even if we do have a small kitchen, including a quality stove that will last our lifetime will also be an investment in quality cooking and timeless style.
