While once chic as your Nagel painting and black lacquer furniture, the not-so- 80’s black kitchen appliance is back with a vengeance.
No better way to celebrate the revival than with this black beauty- Le Cornue Grand Palais 180 (see our blog on Luxury Stoves for all the details). These ovens are custom made to your taste, black on black, black with silver/gold/or rose gold trim, you name it they will make it for you. One can also feel like a celebrity chef with a black Bertazzoni as well. This baby will set you back $10K but with it’s modern lines and trim details your kitchen will wow.
Every girl loves a little gloss! Black gloss cabinets and appliances in a white kitchen create a sleek statement. Black appliances definitely make the most sense but are not limited to more modern kitchens or kitchens with darker or even black cabinets. The Jigsaw designer love pairing all black kitchen cabinets and appliances with white countertops like in following photo.
Samsung has a black stainless steel collection that is smudge resistant and has a very updated texture and tone. This finish is available in their higher price point models of refrigerators, ranges, dishwasher and microwaves. Its matte black stainless look works well with grey cabinets and light grey back splash as seen in the following image.
The big question is, will black appliances become the stainless steel we all have today? Only time can tell. Maybe if companies will add some details, trims and finishes to the high end european brands like Le Cornue then the market will broaden. Let’s face it, some of us enjoy a bit more detail in our space and adding a little flair to the over simplified options we have now, this market segment will grow.
