“There’s something for everyone here, from starter apartment prices to the most luxurious, most beautiful things you can have in your home,” Russell said.
It’s all happening at Pier 94 on West 55th Street. The showroom is filled with limited edition items such as a La Corneau, signature pink stove, which made its debut along with a soft blue model.
“Usually it’s designed by the future owner, the configuration, then we send the order to Paris and they fabricate it and fourteen weeks later it is delivered to their home,” Anne Puriculli said.
A single stove can go up to $80,000.
Another popular luxury brand is Jenn Air.
