You are probably thinking this is a very special private dining room in a upscale restaurant, right? Actually it is the Subzero/Wolf showroom in Atlanta, Georgia. Pretty fab right? I don’t know if you can tell from my photograph but the room is actually round. Behind those paneled doors are food refrigeration and wine storage. Amazing integration!
I had the good fortune of visiting the Subzero/Wolf showroom when I was in Atlanta recently for a combined trip to ADAC, AmericasMart and girls weekend. Veranda hosted a cocktail party in the showroom to celebrate new designs and technology recently introduced by Subzero and Wolf . Clinton Smith, Editor in Chief of Veranda was on hand to meet and greet the designers in attendance. The showroom looked fabulous! I must say I was blown away by the new product technology, as well as the beautiful design options.

One of the fun aspects of visiting a Subzero/Wolf showroom is the fabulous food they feed you! Did you know you can attend cooking demonstrations at your local Subzero/Wolf showroom? Click here to find a showroom near you. Visiting a showroom offers the opportunity of seeing innovative ways the appliances have been incorporated into various styles of kitchens. It’s a great way to get design ideas which can be used in designing your own kitchen. For designers, it offers us the chance to show our clients product offerings up close and personal. The design in the showrooms is always cutting edge, so well worth the effort of attending. You wouldn’t buy a car without test driving it so why would you invest in appliances you haven’t experienced first hand?
All Subzero/Wolf showrooms have a fabulous chef’s kitchen where the chefs prepare food on the latest and greatest products designed by the companies. It’s an opportunity for clients interested in Subzero/Wolf to learn more about the products and taste food prepared by chefs using these products. Here is a photo of the Atlanta showroom’s chef’s kitchen. Feast your eyes on the wall of ovens on the left! Can you imagine having the ability to cook so many things at once? I spoke to one of the chef preparing food that evening and he said he especially liked cooking in the Wolf convection/steam oven for events, because it will cook large amounts of food quickly, without fear of drying out the food.
This arrangement of Wolf ovens has been very popular. The top oven is a microwave/convention oven, with a convection/steam oven next in the stack, followed by a warming drawer on the bottom. (sorry I got my reflection in the oven doors!) My friend Aml who looks like she is watching my photo shoot is actually listening to the sales rep explain why this particular arrangement works so well. Aml has a new kitchen with Subzero and Wolf appliances, so she was sharing what she liked about the appliances with the showroom sales person. That’s another great aspect about visiting a showroom. Getting interaction with the knowledgeable sales staff who can answer any questions you might have about the products. If you are working with a design professional, ask your designer. He or she will gladly book a showroom visit for you. I find it is extra helpful to attend with your designer, because he or she designed the plan for your kitchen and can direct you on the best options for your space. If your designer has already specified what he or she thinks are the best choices for your kitchen, a showroom visit can solidify your options. Good appliances are not cheap, but you do get what you pay for. I always direct clients to buy the best appliances they can afford. If you are a cook, this is an area that can make everyday life more enjoyable. Not to mention that beautiful appliances really add to the wow factor in a kitchen in a high end home.
There are so many options available. I am only going to highlight a few. For more information please ask your designer or visit the Subzero-Wolf Website. Here are a few of the new appliances I saw in Atlanta.
Featured here is the Wolf Professional series 30″ cooktop. This particular series offers four dual stacked burners as well as a low flame burner for cooking at lower temperatures.
I had to share a picture of the fun chess set in the showroom.
