As a reply was never forthcoming I did more than a bit of research and finally got the scoop. The stove is a Heartland Metro and unfortunately according to the company has been discontinued. They only make the antique looking stoves now.

Thank you for doing all the research Hillary. Bummer they don't make it anymore, I love the half moon window.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Islas started off with the San Felipe pattern floor tile and picked a Spanish tile for the backsplash. A palette of terra cottas, whites and teal accents felt like a natural fit. Islas used the teal on the cabinetry, tile and window seat fabric to tie the room together. "After" photos: David Young-Wolff
3. Vintage Kitchen With Turquoise AccentsDesigner: Erica IslasLocation: Los AngelesInspired by the 1920s roots of this sweet Los Angeles home, designer Erica Islas played off classic but cheerful turquoise in this colorful kitchen. The San Felipe–pattern floor tile inspired the Spanish backsplash tile, which in turn evolved into a palette of terra-cottas, whites and teals.
