8 years ago we remodeled our kitchen. I remember loving classic stainless steel appliances, but ultimately deciding against them because I didn’t want to constantly clean my then two year old’s little fingerprints off my fridge. LG Electronics just introduced a new series of kitchen appliances with an exciting new finish called “Black Stainless Steel” that’s awesome — and you can’t leave fingerprints on it. We got a sneak peek last night at an event at One World Trade’s Observatory on the 102 floor. We heard HGTV design stars David Bromstad and Emily Henderson discuss how they brought the new black stainless finish to life and talk about the LG Limitless Design Pinterest contest, plus there was a discussion on 2016 design trends.
David VanderWaal, vice president of marketing for LG Electronics USA spoke about how LG’s brand promise of “Life’s Good” and their pledge of “innovation for a better life” He told us that at LG, Innovation can mean technology, but it can also mean design. When it comes to design, LG tries to do things a different way. They bring fresh perspectives to appliances. Design and function don’t have to live independently. LG has blended form and function.
Check out my video of the event here:
LG’s new black stainless finish, featured in an array of new refrigerators, ranges, dishwashers and microwaves, updates the traditional stainless steel that has been that has become a mainstay in tens of millions of American kitchens. And the best part? The black stainless steel finish is fingerprint and smudge resistant, making moms and dads everywhere rejoice!
LG’s new Black Stainless Steel Series consists of 13 appliances, available now through major U.S. retailers nationwide.
I was really impressed with the LG Black Stainless Steel Series 4-Door French Door Refrigerator with Door-in-Door®. My favorite thing about it? For those fly-by visits to the refrigerator, the Door in-Door® feature allows you to get in and get out providing easy access to beverages and snacks. Great for kids who love to serve themselves! Also, the additional shelf space gives you yet another way to keep your refrigerator organized. The Door-in-Door® compartment incorporates a ColdSaver™ panel that helps reduce cold air loss to keep food fresher longer.
