The brand new CornuFé Stove from La Cornue is not quite in the same ballpark as the high-end appliance maker's Grand Palais stove because, unlike the Grand Palais, the CornuFé is not entirely handmade. Instead, it makes use of some new innovations in the technology of La Cornue manufacturing and is finished by hand. This means that the wait for a piece is not nearly as long as it has been in the past - and the quality of the performance is still top-notch, making this a great choice for the avid home cook. The professional-style appliance has a 5-burner cooktop with a 17,500 BTU burner, three 12,000 BTU burners and a "simmer" burner with a variable BTU. There are twin electric convection ovens beneath the stovetop, each of which has two oven racks, and there is a wide range of finishes to choose from. "White Glove Delivery" is an extra $1,000, and includes installation. Price: $8,000.
We've seen a lot of new pref-fab housing ideas lately but at the Interior Design Show in Toronto, Karim Rashid will be showing off a new concept space. The Kit 24, the circus-tent-like design shown here is a a 24-sided house. It is stocked with Rashid-designed furniture inside and features a Corian kitchen. Other designs on display at the show will include the rounded Kloud chair by Rashid; the Sauna Box, a portable sauna designed in a shipping container; and the new CornuFé range from fancy oven makers La Cornue. The Interior Design Show runs from February 24 to February 26, 2006 at the National Trade Centre, Exhibition Place in Toronto.
