An Ice Box Made of French Oak - Versus A Refrigerator

The La Glaceier Antique(ish) Refrigerator.

This arts and crafts look alike is really the best that I have seen.

The interior is as much a work of art as the exterior, providing state of the art refrigeration that is also state of the art luxury with its interior satin finish stainless steel shelves, a brass light, stainless steel meat hooks and separate temperature controls for food conservation compartments and the wine areas. Depending on the model selected, one can store as many as 68 wine bottles, and the doors may be glazed or solid wood.

There are only 2000 units year made.

This is supposed to look like an ICE BOX. ( google it,... if you are too young to remember one )

And it really does.

Not that I have ever seen a real ice box......but my grandmother called a Refrigerator an Ice Box when I was a small child.
You can customize these babies.

This Ice Box/ Refrigerator is exquisitely crafted, fully pegged, solid French Oak casing with an antique finish. They then go on to adorn it with solid brass fittings and finish it up with your name on a solid brass plate! Cha Cha Cha !!!

If I were to 'spec' this for a client, this would be an easy sell to the husband.
It's such a manly Fridge-
I always like to give the husband a goodie or two. It makes the total cost a little easier for him to swallow.
We must keep him happy as well. No ?

  1. You're right, it would be an easy sell to the husband. Mrs.E. and I are in love with this ice box. But it costs so much I'm afraid that we'd have to sell the house and move into it. Still, it might make for a very stylish residence and quite the conversation piece.

    Thanks for the visit!



Thanks for participating!!

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.
