Our LOGO - The Vintage Wood Burning Cookstove
The age old vintage wood cookstove is an icon of rural America as powerful as the split-rail fence and horse-drawn wagon. Whether it’s the solid, traditional look of cast iron, or the eye-catching gleam of nickel plate, just a glimpse of a cookstove can elicit feelings of nostalgia and, for many, a longing for ownership.
Just as Shaker cabinets are an enduring legacy of American style and, like wood flooring, have the knack for looking good in any setting. Their simple frame-and-panel design helps reduce the amount of busyness in a kitchen, making it a soothing, friendly place to be.
So enduring is such a cookstove’s appeal that even today you can buy new models that are in almost every way replicas of the ones your grandparents and great-grandparents might have used. “In a kitchen with a timeless look, you want the cabinets to be part of the backdrop,” says Alan Zielinski, a former president of the National Kitchen and Bath Association. “You don’t want to be overpowered. You’re looking for plain, simple, clean lines.”
I grew up with my mother cooking on an old wood stove like the one in our logo. We had to build a fire in that stove almost every day of my life until I was 10 years old. It represents the strength and longevity of cooking the old fashion way which people today want to strive to obtain. Today folks are smitten by these iconic symbols of the American tradition of style and taste.
