One of the biggest trends in contemporary kitchens is to rethink what it means to be modern.
Gone are the days when fixtures and appliances had to be cold stainless steel in order to be au courant. These days, designers are updating sleek models with warm finishes and vibrant colors to make kitchens that are just as friendly and inviting as they are smart and elegant.
The new Portofino aesthetic line from Italian manufacturer SMEG combines bright, rich tones with the latest technology to create a stylish new choice for architects and designers. “The new Portofino design line is inspired by the rich tones and light, bright colors of the Mediterranean, specifically, the Ligurian port town of Portofino,” says Christian Boscherini of SMEG USA. With options in an array of colors and shades, there is a Portofino oven fit for any kitchen design, adding just the right amount of Italian panache.
The Portofino aesthetic line continues the company’s work to make kitchen appliances that are beautiful enough to stand alone as their own pieces of design. Because the exterior colors of the Portofino ovens continue along their sides, the appliances can either be tucked into cabinetry or stand alone. The robust, solid and ergonomic knobs visually hold their own on the oven’s face while being tough enough to withstand years of use. The cast iron grills on the range add some comfortable heft to the stovetop.
