Healthy recipes from one family to another.

Cole's Appliance & Furniture Co. has been in the same Chicago location and family owned and operated since 1946.

Family togetherness is a Krasney priority so we are thrilled to bring you a family-inspired recipe from Subzero/Wolf.


Good fresh, delicious foods are key ingredients in a healthy life. So start with one: one simple meal a week. Maybe the next week it’s two. The act of cooking is powerful. What’s more, eating at home has proven to bring families closer together.

Rose Quartz 'Jena' Couch

The soothing, calming nature of colors in the Spring collections are led by Rose Quartz, a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. Like a serene sunset, flushed cheek or budding flower, Rose Quartz reminds us to reflect on our surroundings during the busy but lighthearted spring and summer months.

Limpett Shell 'Monroe' His & Her Chair

A shade of aqua that leans toward the green family, Limpet Shell is clear, clean and defined. Suggestive of clarity and freshness, its crisp and modern influences evoke a deliberate, mindful tranquility.

 

Lilac Grey 'Duchess' Sofa

As in most any season, the need for neutrals arises. Essentially a basic, the subtlety of the lilac undertone in, Lilac Gray, adds a distinctive edge to this classic gray shade.

 

Fiesta 'Mcguire' chair

The high energy Fiesta is a harbinger of excitement, encouraging free-spirited exploration to unknown but welcoming locales. A strong and fiery, yellow-based red, the vivid Fiesta provides a stark contrast to the calming, softer nature of this season’s palette.

 

Iced Coffee 'Dorset' Sectional

A transitional color that will take us through the seasons, Iced Coffee manifests as another strong neutral for the season. With its natural earthy quality, the softness and subtlety of Iced Coffee creates a stable foundation when combined with the rest of this season’s palette.

Flash Green 'Dax' Sofa

Green Flash calls on its wearer to explore, push the envelope and escape the mundane, radiating an openness that combines with the rest of the palette in unexpected but serendipitous ways.
