Integrated under-counter refrigerators like this one from
Elmira Stove Works has been offering “antique” ranges with nickel-plated trim, reminiscent of 19th-century stoves, for more than 20 years, including all-gas, all-electric, and wood-burning ranges. Their other offerings include refrigerators, wall ovens, dishwashers, even microwave ovens. A second line, the very colorful Northstar, includes ranges, stove splashbacks and range hoods, refrigerators, and dishwasher panels ideal for homes built in the 1940s, ’50s, and ’60s. Similarly, Heartland, now part of the AGA Marvel family, offers both antique-style and contemporary lines of kitchen appliances.
At the other end of the spectrum, a handful of companies still make only one kind of appliance: ranges or range hoods, for example. Playing on a single strength doesn’t mean limited choices. Colors, styles, widths, and customization options can be extensive. Lacanche, for instance, has more than a dozen styles and sizes of cooking stoves, in many gorgeous colors.
