The Smeg fridge brings a retro look to many homes across the country – with fans including Wallace and Gromit! A widely recognisable product, the appliance is available in a wide range of soft 50’s pastels and various limited edition prints.

The company was set up in Italy in 1948 and established originally as a metal enamelling factory. They soon began developing appliances and in 1956 the first Smeg cooker was launched. They soon followed with one of the first ever front loaded washing machines.

In the 1990’s – the iconic Smeg retro fridge was released. The curvy look was a massive hit to add a quirky spin to the kitchen. Today, the fridges are still as popular as ever. They are an aesthetically pleasing item that can work amazingly well to enhance a kitchen design.

AGA – A Design Classic

Beloved by many Brits, the AGA is a totemic symbol of country living. The warm heart of the home, it provides constant heat to suit our damp climate.

Invented in 1922 by a Swedish Nobel Prize winner Gustaf Dalé, the license was bought by a British company seven years later who then began manufacturing. The AGA was revolutionary as it could be left on all day without the need for constant attention. Today, they are made in a Shropshire foundry which is listed as a world heritage site.

This iconic product is an opinion divider for many people with its various pros and cons. However, nothing quite creates that unique homely warmth in your kitchen on a wet cold day. Its shape and style timeless and long lasting – the AGA has firmly cast itself into British culture and will do for many more years to come. A true design classic.
