For more than a hundred years, La Cornue has been manufacturing luxury appliances, and we are proud to bring the latest La Cornue Château Suprême ranges to Appliances Connection. These luxury kitchen appliances were custom-designed for La Cornue by famed interior designer Ferris Rafauli, mirroring the work that Martyn Lawrence Bullard has done with the designer range brand.
Whether you are looking for a professional-grade range with Art Deco design or you simply want to learn what makes Château Suprême ranges stand out so much, you're in the right place. Read on to learn more about the Château Suprême collaboration with Ferris Rafauli, and what makes these ranges so special.
Who Is Ferris Rafauli?
Ferris Rafauli is a Canadian designer of luxury homes. He thinks of homes as works of art from the moment he is selected for a design job, and with the Château Suprême ranges, he has extended this philosophy to include truly custom luxury appliances. Rafauli has had a hand in every element of the Château Suprême ranges' design, melding contemporary sophistication with Art Deco detailing.
How Are the Château Suprême Ranges Created?
Château Suprême ranges are created using a combination of enamel, brass, walnut, and even leather. With two sizing options (71 in. and 59 in. wide) and up to six cooktop configurations to choose from, you're guaranteed to find a luxury range that meets your needs. The Château Suprême color options include Essex Green, Cloud Gray, California Blue, and FR Blue, as well as any of La Cornue's existing Château finishes. Even the bezels and the toe kick come with individually aligned molded bars.
Both sizes of range have two oven compartments, one gas and one electric. This allows you to choose your favorite cooking method for any food item. The larger option (the Château Suprême Grand Palais 180) can also include two optional warming drawers that can hold either an electric teppanyaki or stainless steel tops, while the smaller one (the Château Suprême 150) has two optional warming cupboard modules.
You can expect the ornamental elements of the Château Suprême ranges to have Ferris Rafauli's signature touch, from angular, grooved details to Art Deco handles and hinges. If your selected cooktop configuration includes a Lava Rock Grill, you will also get a solid walnut chopping block to precisely match your range.
La Cornue's Matching Range Hoods
If you're going to get such a stunning, high-end Art Deco range, you'll want a range hood
that matches it. Thankfully, La Cornue has delivered on that front. There are two size options available: the Château Suprême Hood 150 is 67 in. wide, and the Château Suprême Hood 180 is 79 in. wide. Both range hoods come with 1200 CFM internal blowers. In either size, you can choose from the same four exclusive color options, as well as the Château Series' vast selection of finishes. Exclusive to the Château Suprême range hoods is the option for a real leather finish, as well.
Are La Cornue ovens self cleaning?
In general, ovens from La Cornue's Château Series do not come with a self cleaning mode. This is because the intense heat of a self cleaning mode risks doing damage to the oven's seals, compromising its efficiency.
Who owns La Cornue?
Since 2015, the Middleby Corporation has owned La Cornue. This company is based in Illinois, while La Cornue's day-to-day operations remain based in France.
What is a French range?
A French range has a smooth matte finish and heavy-duty hardware, and it is built to last a lifetime. All ranges from La Cornue's Château Series are high-end, luxury French ranges.
