The Most Beautiful Cooking Ranges

I spent a few hours yesterday at the Architectural Digest Home Design Show and, among other things, got a good dose of stove lust as a number of the high end range companies were there. Amidst all the big, beefy grills and brightly colored dials, I felt myself strongly influenced by the look and feel of each of the grills and longing for something that seemed original with not too many bells and whistles. So I decided to pull together a list of all the MOST BEAUTIFUL range companies I knew (money, no object) so you'd have plenty of eye candy on this rainy Monday and also so you'd have a starting point for the day you outfit your dream home. Enjoy!

Now, please keep in mind that I'm not going out on a limb here and saying HOW WELL any of these stoves work (though I assume for this kind of money, they're all pretty darn good), I'll leave that to my friends over at The Kitchn to test lab each one, but these are all remarkable looking ranges.

Traditional Style

>> AGA Ranges

>> Lacanche French Ranges

>> Legend Range by Heartland

>> Redfyre Cookers

>> Heritage Range Cookers

Commercial Style

>> Wolf Ranges

>> Alpes Inox Ranges

>> Bertazzoni Ranges

>> Viking Ranges

>> Blue Star Ranges

>> Capital Ranges

Really Commercial - these are typically not insulated for home use... but some folks either get them insulated or use them anyway.

>> Garland Ranges - I don't care if it's old and dirty, these Garlands are amazing and authentic, and I've known a bunch of people who've had them at home.

>> Vulcan Ranges
