For some reason, at some point in the last few decades, some idiot decided that appliances should no longer be available in custom colors. And after seeing a bunch of grandma-house atrocities while house hunting in Philly yesterday, I can’t blame him (yeah, it was definitely a dude). But something tells me all the major appliance manufacturers just got together one day and decided over stiff cocktails, the fewer options the “better” (read: cheaper). And so began the reign of stainless, black, and white. Not a lot of fun for us designers!
Now you’re probably saying to yourself, “Smeg, Smeg, Smeg!” Yeah, we get it! They’re adorable. Just like a wittle kitten. Cute, but too small to get much done. The first time Tara and I saw one in real life (after gushing over a bunch of pictures), we couldn’t believe how tiny it was. Plus they only come as a fridge or a freezer, not both.
Enter Big Chill Fridge! Well, twelve years ago–I’m a little late on this one. But how awesome are those colors? Not only do they have normal-person-size and Smeg-size fridge-slash-freezers, they also have ranges and range hoods and dishwashers and microwaves. Check out Drew Barrymore’s kitchen below!
Now all we need is a big-budget kitchen job.
