Quite lovely, though I think they could've done better with the water/ice dispenser.  I do want them both greatly, however!

They also have microwaves, dishwashers, etc.  But not in normal image form. . . click the link.  My father is contemplating buying a set, and I am all but putting a gun to his head to do it!

I'm actually getting that stove for my kitchen this summer.  Not the 'fridge, though...  instead i'm opting for a 'fridge with a door panel that looks like a wooden icebox.

Here's the link:

I may not get that exact 'fridge, but most better appliances can be fitted w/ custom doors-- even my current KitchenAid 'fridge has doors to match my cabinetry.  It may just depend on your carpenter's skills, or your own carpentry skills!  Change out the hardware and anything is possible...   here's a link to some repro hardware :http://www.vandykes.com/subcategory/407/

If you are referring to the Elmira page, I had the same problem.  Their ads have been featured in Old House Interiors Magazine, among others-- that's where i've seen them installed in period-style kitchens.

You may well be interested in the Good Time Stove Company which reconditions and sells a variety of old stoves for kitchen and heating.

as my employer happens to be a rather large home appliance manufacturing company, I have been following the retro-trend with high hopes.


unfortunately the only retro we have done thus-far has been a bright red 50's style ice box with chrome....  but I think that was only available in germany.

A former customer of mine, (who , indeed, had a reputation for "more money than sense") had her entire kitchen redone with a base of  dark walnut wood and reddish granite countertops - appliance and cabinet-door facings of hammered patina'ed copper, and bright brass scrollwork overlays. It cost more than my last house and last few cars together, but seeing it was nearly a religious experience.  Anything is possible to the determined DIY'er.

I'd personally rather have one that was wood fired.  Can still get those too, as well as the old absorbtion-cycle refrigerators that ran off of oil lamps.  Here's one of my favorite sites for such things, as well as lots of other accessories from the past century.

As a plus, this site seems to be up and navigating...

I just love those old-fashioned looking stoves. Now if I could just find a commercial sized one I would be in heaven. I must confess there is part of me that wants to try one of those british stoves called an Alga I think?

depends on how much you want to spend.

the french company LaCornue has a pretty killer line.  Another plus is that they will double the price of your home as well.

but there are french-styled commercial sized products all over the market.

They'd only add to the value of the home if I didn't strip em out and take them to the next place when I moved.  If I had something that nice, I think I'd take it with me, and leave behind something cheap.  Can always find the occasional stove by the side of the road with a 'free-take me' sign to leave for the next owners.

Aga - http://www.aga-web.co.uk/ They have quite a cult following I believe. Never seen one in the flesh though.

AGA  is a strange one as they are really into their "always on" line of ranges...  meaning, the thing is literally always, well, on.

have not heard much in regards to what consumers are saying about them.  They sell in the US and are always showing up at trade shows, but they have such a small presence here that the people who want one are the people who actively seek them out.

Personally, I am a big fan of the guys out there who are big into restoration of the old cast-iron mamoths.

Ah, yes...the Aga line. I myself had wanted one at some point. The other stoves look wonderful! When I find a permanent residence of my own, I shall purchase one.

Regarding the Aga:

I'll offer the disclaimer that i am by no means a chef. However, for my 30th birthday i rented a cottage on Martha's Vineyard that featured--among other amenities--a six-burner dual-oven Aga. Other than its size affording the opportunity to cook more things simultaneously, it didn't strike me as particularly extraordinary, as stoves go.

In terms of the experience, i was far more excited about the cottage's proximity to an amazing old antique/rare bookstore and the Victorian "gingerbread cottages" of Oak Bluffs:
