95/365: Just What Makes A Stove Majestic?

Majestic Stove Lofts

The residences in the loft district of Washington and Locust Avenues are in old commercial buildings, most of which have kept their original names. So I assume this one used to make, distribute or sell stoves. A stove is a prosaic object. Even the stoves in the Palace of Versailles were work-a-day tools. So what's with calling some of them majestic? Just 19th Century marketing.

It must be majestic because we're not starting a fire and cooking over it on a daily basis :) It's a very cool, retro name though.
