The kitchen of my dreams
I finally made it down to the new Sub-Zero/Wolf showroom at 280 King St. E., which opened in March. Oh-la-la! I walked in and was blown away by the open-concept space, which features oversized Carrera marble tiles, lots of sleek red and blue glass (see pic at left) and hand-blown glass light sculptures. Designed by the award-winning Elaine Cecconi of Cecconi Simone Inc., this LEED-certified building is must-visit for anyone who loves good design and great appliances. The 4,000 square-foot space features the brand’s gorgeous high-end fridges, stoves and dishwashers in both traditional and modern settings. I love the new Sub-Zero built-in refrigerators, which fit perfectly flush against the wall – and the Wolf drawer microwaves. So sleek, and too many brill features to mention here. A visitor lounge features uber-chic Minotti furniture, a Lolli e Memmoli chandelier and Sub-Zero wine refrigerators. The glassed-in boardroom is available for private meetings, as is a catering kitchen. In addition to Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, the space will also feature products from retail partners, ranging from Designer Glass, Kohler, Paul Wolf Lighting and Sound Designs. Even if SubZero/Wolf is just a teeny weeny bit beyond your budget, visit this space, just to be inspired.
