Viking kitchens are all over the Hollywood celeb-scape. From Rihanna to Cameron Diaz to Alec Baldwin, the instantly recognizable high-end brand dazzles almost as brightly as the stars who use them.
Alec and Hilaria Baldwin
The six burner/griddle and dual oven range has pride of place in the center of Alec and Hilaria Baldwin’s stark white New York Viking kitchen. It’s not just for show, either. Culinary author Hilaria gets the most out of her stove, choosing to make her family healthy meals, telling delish.com that she prefers to cook with low sugars and healthy fats such as coconut, virgin olive, and avocado oils.
Also in Manhattan, Cameron Diaz’s former Viking kitchen couldn’t be more different than the Baldwins’. Though she sold the 2 bedroom apartment sold in 2015, much was made of the emerald green, brass-trimmed kitchen cabinets, mirrored walls and of course the Viking double oven stove which stood prominently at the focus of it all. “It’s a bit like living in a silk-lined jewelry box,” the actress said at the time.
Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis
Actors Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis’s former home in the Meatpacking District is currently being rented for a humbling $13.5K/month according to 6sqft. Though it was sold it for $3.8 million in 2015, the open kitchen with Viking appliances and custom Italian cabinets continue to be highlights of the two bedroom condo at 66 Ninth Avenue in the Porter House building.
Shifting to the west coast, R&B/pop star Usher’s 1926 Spanish contemporary home overlooking the Sunset Strip, behind the famed Chateau Marmont, has been meticulously restored and renovated. Among the highlights are wood beam ceilings, a theater, pool, new deck, private terrace and of course a chef’s Viking kitchen complete. The house just went on the market for a cool $4,162,100.
Usher is selling but Rihanna was buying. Last August, she snapped up a striking, newly renovated 7,200 sq ft Old Hollywood estate with six bedrooms, 10 bathrooms and 18,000 sq ft of space. The 29-year old pop star purchased the property with a $1.2 million discount from the original $8 million asking price. Amongst the Brazilian Quartzite countertops, breakfast bar, and beamed ceilings in the gourmet kitchen is a mammoth 60-inch Viking range, hood and refrigerator and dishwasher.
Just listed is “Grey’s Anatomy” star, Ellen Pompeo’s longtime Spanish style home in Los Angeles, blocks away from the Hollywood Bowl. Pompeo, who makes $20 million a year, has a commercial grade Viking range with matching, hood, fridge. These perfectly complement steel counter tops and an earthy wood plank dining table.
The Kardashians and Jenners seem to buy and sell real estate at the rate most people purchase groceries. Kendell Jenner, the 22-yer old younger sister of Kim, Kourtney and Khloe, sold her LA condo in November for $1.4 million. Admittedly, the $100K profit she made would probably cover her month’s dry-cleaning bill (she is estimated to be worth $100 million). Her 70s retro-chic kitchen features a Viking cooktop/wall oven combo and built-in microwave with trim kit. Viking wall oven/range combo.
Vikings Kitchens — the glamorous and professional choice for those who know.
