As anyone who has even remotely followed European kitchen design knows, appliances are virtually engineered into the most seamless fit within cabinetry to create as seamless a look as humanly possible.
To me, built in appliances are a special type of beauty to behold. It's sculptural, often a look of architectural permanance in the home and the design just flows. But, it's certainly not all about appliances being built in...some of the coolest appliances were freestanding or top mounted. Let's take a look at some appliance awesomeness.
Below, Liebherr's experiment with texture-I was told it was a concept
Below, a sleek built-in Gaggenau oven...just fits in there so snugly!
Below, a very cool downdraft fan that glows - I did not get the name of this appliance, but I'll attempt to find out and report back!
Below, I just loved the knobs of this Siemen's cooktop...enjoy!
Below, love the stacked, super built in Miele ovens, don't you?
Below, an elegant drop in gas cooktop by Foster
Below, how about this curved range by Lofra
Below, uber built in cooktop in stainless steel by Bora - note the flush installation
Below, sexy built in Miele ovens once again!
Below, I really love this cooktop by Foster that is a long span of one cooktop wide, front to back
This is pure eye candy (at least for me!) I like many of the details. I have more appliances to show, which I will, soon! Much more to come from the IMM Cologne Living Kitchen show in Germany, especially the fantastic design of kitchens and furnishings...not to mention the displays within the exhibits!
