Steam Punk Kitchen
Design Notes: Inspired by the famous science fiction novel Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, Kitchens.com rendered this virtual steampunk-style kitchen as an homage to the book's author, Jules Verne. While not an actual kitchen, it does feature 3-D images of real Elmira Stove Works appliances, like the stove and refrigerator. The large, circular window pays tribute to the porthole of the Nautilus - Verne's imagined submarine in Twenty Thousand Leagues. While the original book didn't have illustrations, the window we created comes from the porthole seen in the 1954 film adaptation of Verne's story. And the barrel-shaped island? It's made from a train steam engine as a land vessel complement to the kitchen's steampunk interior.
