From LG’s new matte black range to Smeg’s new white appliances and fabulous wine cellars, there’s plenty to love in our latest round-up of kitchen finds.
LG Matte Black appliance range: With matte black a solid trend at present, LG has released a range of complementary on-trend appliances. The range includes a microwave, dishwasher and fridge with a unique ‘InstaView’ technology. You literally knock twice on the fridge door and the glass panel on the front of the fridge turns transparent to reveal the inside of the fridge. Not only is it obviously super handy, it reduces cold air loss and temperature fluctuations too. From $379.
Smeg white collection: For a company that rose to fame on the back of colour, it’s ironic that Smeg’s latest offering sees an expansion of its white line-up. Not only has it introduced a white option for its iconic Victoria freestanding cooker, but the brand’s retro blender is now available in white too. $299 (blender) and $6290 (cooker).
Caesarstone: Inspired by carbon fibre, fire and dust, the latest Caesarstone finishes feature deep black shades, bold charcoal and midnight grey and are a response to global trends. “Kitchens, for example, will take inspiration from carbon fibre, those materials that come naturally from fire and dust. It’s a new way of looking at beauty and dark, dramatic colours will be used in bathrooms to create a more sophisticated, hedonistic ambience too,” says trend forecaster Li Edelkoort of the new range.
ILVE SuperINOX cooktop: Made in Italy from stainless steel, ILVE’s latest cooktop is available in two sizes – 77cm and 90cm and the best part about it is that the edges are bevelled making it look like it’s part of the bench top. It’s a nice alternative to a flush mounted design. From $2199.
Smeg Dolce Stil Novo wine cellars: Dolce Stil Novo, Smeg’s luxury kitchen appliance range, introduced two new wine cellars recently. There’s a 450mm high built-in model and an 820mm under bench option and they offer precise controlled temperature (between 5˚C and 20˚C), ideal humidity, perfect air quality, UV protection and are vibration free. Made with black glass, each option is paired with copper or stainless steel detailing and they complement the collection’s other appliances. From $2190.
Cosentino Dekton industrial collection: Cosentino has introduced four new colours in its Dekton Industrial collection that are inspired by aged and oxidised metals, stones and cement and are perfect for creating a strong, urban aesthetic.
