The first time I saw one of these gorgeous ranges was at WS. I have to tell you that even when I had seen them often at Magazines and online, it was nothing compared to seeing one of these in person. My knees started shaking, my heart wanted to jump out through my mouth, and my eyes didn't belong to me anymore. Well, ok, ok I know. I'm exaggerating a little bit. But it was somehow true. To me La Cornue range is the Hermes Birking bag of ranges. It's made to order by hand and there is a wait of three months to get it. Each range is made of the best quality materials: steel, iron, cast, solid brass, nickel and enamel. La Cornue was founded in 1908 by Albert Dupuy. If I had an extra $35,000 sitting somewhere I would get one tomorrow or maybe one of its little sisters which are somehow more affordable? CornuFe and Albertine. In the US they are sold by Purcell-Murray and William Sonoma.
