What is it? 1908 90cm range cooker, £6,700, La Cornue
Why I love it: The 1908 is everything you could want from a range cooker. It’s sturdy, stylish, small enough to fit into an urban kitchen like mine… and now it comes in three luscious, Mondrian-inspired enamel finishes – red, blue and this sunny yellow. There are five burners on top, and your choice of a gas or electric version of the famous vaulted oven that circulates the hot air to retain natural moisture.
