anyone have a tulikivi?
just wondering. we got one 5 years ago, retrofitted into our 1968 house. it's the tall, 7' model, dividing the kitchen from the living room. we love it, we grill and bake in it in winter occasionally, and it heats well. (one downside is that if you're grilling meat, it tends to splatter, and we have a couple of grease splatters on the outside to show for it.)
but at the time i didn't think of how it would go with the rest of the house, design and color wise. i'm redoing the kitchen soon and i'm trying to decide if i should try to incorporate it's looks (i.e., dark stone countertops) or just kind of do the kitchen the way i originally envisioned (maple butcherblock)... it also isn't a great match with the orangy cherry floors we have.
anybody have anything to share about living with their tulikivi?
i'm just kind of thinking out loud....
