Frieze frame

STEAMING ahead

It’s not enough these days to be able to whip up a quick Bolognese – we’re all expected to master slow-cooking and sous-vide, not to mention baking for Britain. Fortunately, the good folk at Sub-Zero & Wolf have put all three disciplines within reach via its convection steam oven. Cooking with steam tends to maintain natural Q\PJLZHUKÅH]V\YZLUZ\YPUNKLSPJH[LTVPZ[ textures. From £4,700. Available from Kitchen Appliances, Second Floor

Frieze of Archers is an ancient Persian mural dating back to 510 BC and today housed in the Louvre. The frieze’s beauty and condition have long attracted admirers including Spanish ceramic specialist Lladró, which has created a vase based on the scene. Employing the same coral, khaki and blue tones as the original, and incorporating rich golden hues, every detail has been meticulously reconstructed to celebrate Persian history. £1,500. Available from Luxury Home, Second Floor

SECONDS

For those who can’t function without their morning caffeine, the latest addition to the Lattissima family provides the fix. The compact, countertop Lattissima Pro can brew a cappuccino, latte or macchiato in under a minute, while the latte crema function allows for milk to be heated to the ideal temperature. If that doesn’t make baristas happy enough, this new machine from DeLonghi even has an intuitive touchscreen control that learns your order. Not to mention arguably its most beneficial feature: the auto-clean function. £429.99. Available from Kitchen Appliances, Second Floor

TV on the GO

German electronics giant Loewe is all about firsts: it completed the first electronic film transmission and built the first colour television. The new Ultra HD 4K Connect continues the brand’s technological progress. As well as having picture quality four times clearer than HD, its 1TB of storage means recording and binge-watching TV dramas (in HD or 3D, of course) is just a fingertap away. Plus, if a show comes on, but you have to leave the room, “Smart TV2move” can stream it to your tablet. Available from Loewe Televisions, Third Floor HAR RODS M AGAZINE
