One Range, Three Kitchen Styles

black Lacanche Sully range in a rustic kitchenLately I’ve seen black Lacanche ranges pop up in very different houses.

Instantly  recognizable by the star-shaped handles and the oval badge on the oven door, the ever-chic black version of the popular French “piano” from Burgundy, has broken free from its traditional category. For a rustic but grandly atmospheric in an elegant country home in the Smoky Mountains, designer Suzanne Kasler paired Lacanche’s Sully model with natural wood cabinets, an ebonized island, and antique details such as the 19th Century English oak plate rack. Sleek stainless steel counters tie in with the trim. (You can see Screen Porch Heaven in the same house).

black Lacanche Cormatin in a small Belgian kitchenDesigner Brigitte Garnier also included a black range in her showpiece Belgian Country Kitchen and went for the color (complete with glazed zillij tiles) in an extremely modest country kitchen that features a diminuitive Lacanche Cormatin. One of our favorite NY hangouts, Mosiac House on West 22nd  St. , is a major purveyor of the Moroccan glazed tiles, which despite the fuss over Belgian kitchens has yet to go mainstream for backsplashes here.

white contemporary kitchen with black Lacanche Cluny 1400 rangeA classic white and marble kitchen with contemporary hardware and detailing might be a little more conventional were it not for the stunning Cluny 1400 chosen by Welsh-born designer Melanie Turner. Crowning the range with a massive custom vent hood, while concealing a SubZero behind cabinet panels, keeps the focus where it belongs.

    that range is so beautiful. I love these three kitchens, definitely not the same old, same old.

    It’s a favorite range of mine and clearly a reaction to “pro style” kitchens which can begin to look a bit generic. My thoughts, too.

    Are there kitchens around those ranges? All I see in each photo is the Lacanche… 😉
