I will be hosting a blog series of our personal journey named "Vintedge Life" - photographic posts of the search, finds and progress in transforming our vintage lifestyle in to our mid century house and home. I'm looking forward to sharing our products, services and zest for a vintage life with you, our precious clients! So in that quest, I will be hosting a blog series of our personal journey named "Vintedge Life" - photographic posts of the search, finds and progress in transforming our vintage lifestyle in to our mid century house and home. Since we're vintage and mid century to our soul, we're obsessed with buying vintage and mid century pieces; from furniture, linen and lighting to design, decor and appliances. We are always on the prowl for the best, the unique, the rare and the exceptional. So imagine my surprise when, while thrifting, I ran across this amazing gem...
Of course, it was even more stunning in person - the condition was really great, the interior very clean and it was gas-powered ... it was almost perfect in every aspect, especially the rare low price. However, I was not feeling the close proximity of the burners. What is the reason for them being so close together? I suppose the pots were a lot smaller back then, and the sides were used to hold the pots off-burner. But, I just ... couldn't bring myself to do it. I would've preferred the burners further to the sides and a possible flat grill in the mid section instead. Well, after some researching, Mark informed me that these vintage stoves do in fact, exist; some are restored and even custom painted and available online. He then showed me this one in particular...notice how the burners are on the far sides w/a possible flat grill in the middle. If the one I found had that, it would be in my kitchen right now!
But THIS one below ... is my DREAM stove and oven!!! How absolutely incredible is this ... the overall design and look, the extensive abilities and possibilities; I could just see myself in an apron and heels cookin' up a storm with this in my kitchen. Even w/out the flat grill. It. Is. PERFECT! In every way. I LOVE IT!
This will be a perfect match to our mid century decor and I can hardly wait to run across one of these beauties! If anyone knows where to find one of these local to Detroit, please let me know.
Otherwise, I'm always on the hunt, so I'll keep y'all updated. :) Like our Facebook page for the latest updates, like, comment and share our posts.
