Trivia Thursday: La Cornue

The Rolls Royce of ovens has to be La Cornue. A La Cornue is like a piece of art, and I can only imagine how much joy it brings its owners. The range was invented by Albert Dupuy in 1908, and it has been an extraordinary piece ever since.

I wrote about about La Cornue a couple of years ago, so it’s obviously something that I can’t get out of my design-loving mind!

The Friday Five: White at Williams Sonoma

As I sit here on a Friday night with a broken washing machine (again), a slightly sore throat, and a pile of marking to get started on, I’ve opted to forget my worries, procrastinate, and finally write my Friday Five post. Oh, adulting is fun sometimes, isn’t it?

My Internet travels have taken me to Williams Sonoma, and the shop has so many pretty items. Have a look at these five.

Have a great weekend, everyone!


Design: La Cornue in White

La Cornue is one of – or the – top of the top in the oven department (this one is $9,500 USD at Williams-Sonoma). The appliance is substantial and as gorgeous as a massive appliance could ever be.
