One Range, Three Kitchen Styles

Lacanche ranges - black Sully range in a rustic wood-paneled kitchen - AD via AtticmagLately I’ve seen black Lacanche ranges pop up in kitchens with very different styles.

Instantly  recognizable by the star-shaped handles and the oval badge on the oven door, Lacanche ranges are the popular French “pianos” from Burgundy. Perhaps the most basic Lacanche is the ever-chic black version which has broken free from its traditional style 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).

One of our favorite NY hangouts, Mosiac House on West 22nd  St., is a major purveyor of the square Moroccan glazed tiles the Belgians favor which, despite the fuss over Belgian kitchens, has yet to go mainstream for backsplashes.

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… 😉
