Matthew Fassberg wants to heat up your kitchen. He owns Ovenarts, a line of '30s- to '50s-era stoves re-porcelainized in a variety of, well, hot colors. This is not your mother's stove (prices start at $2,200). There's no plain white here--except as an accent on this burning-red version with blue and yellow knobs or that black number with one white door. Fassberg concocts a color scheme to fit your home; you choose the stove model from his Polaroids. "I try to give my customers as much choice as possible," he says. Just send him a letter with your ideas and/or a color swatch. Then get ready to get hot.
Ovenarts, 2273 Fox Hills Drive, Los Angeles (mailing address only); (213) 552-1725.
