You could be forgiven to think that one toaster, or coffee maker, or blender looks much like another, but you’d be wrong. Take a look at these imaginatively styled, vibrantly colourful small domestic appliances and try not to fall head over heels in love!
Last year’s high profile collaboration between one of the world’s luxury kitchen appliance manufacturers Smeg and Italian fashion house Dolce and Gabbana saw us drooling over opulently decorated Smeg fridges in their fabulously innovative ‘Frigorifero d’Arte’ collection.
This year, the two brands have deepened their partnership with a stunning new collection of small kitchen appliances including toasters, kettles, mixers and coffee makers, blenders and juicers. Called Sicily my Love, Smeg’s award winning small appliances have been exquisitely embellished with decorations that celebrate the rich Italian heritage of both companies.
Each model has a different design, with each item having been lavishly decorated with quintessential Sicilian motifs featuring a riot of floral patterns and leaf motifs, gold lemons and citrus fruit, bright cherries and prickly pears. Inspired by the coasts and landscapes of southern Italy and Mount Etna, the décor includes ornamental friezes and the hallmark ‘Made in Italy’ emblem, reinforcing both brand’s deep respect for Italian traditions and the importance of acknowledging and maintaining their local roots.
The new must-have appliances are due to arrive in our shops by the end of the year, just in time for Christmas. Now there’s something to put on your wish list!
