Peek in on any celebrity kitchen (maybe the next time George Clooney invites you to his home or the next time you pick up a magazine), and its evident that the luxury appliances, more so than any other elements, are the stars of the show.
Just like the designer labels that line the closets of A-listers Prada, Gucci and Louis Vuitton - designer appliance labels dominate the whos who of Hollywoods kitchens. From the Wolf range with the signature red knobs in Kevin Jonass New Jersey home to the Sub-Zero Refrigerator in Christina Aguileras kitchen to the not one - but two - Bosch dishwashers celebrity chef Barefoot Contessa Ina Garten has in her Hampton's home, celebs love their luxury appliances.
Kitchens will always be the sweet spot of a home, says Courtney Cachet, a NYC-based celebrity designer and TV personality who has worked with many famous recording artists and athletes. When big spenders spend, this is where they go crazy usually!
The majority of kitchen experts agree that Wolf cooking appliances, which range in price from $4,200 to $16,000 (MSRP) are the new “it” appliance, mainly for the way the brand seamlessly blends functionality and style.
“With the fascination of shows such as ‘Top Chef,’ ‘Iron Chef’ and ‘Chopped,’ being bold and creative in the kitchen is at the forefront of most homeowners’ culinary agenda,” says Lindsay Hair, a NYC-based designer who has worked with a variety of high-profile clients. “The fascination that draws most in with Wolf is the belief that it has magic, the belief that it will make you a top chef or a hostess with an amazing dinner spread, and that you have it all - outside and inside the home!”
