Red smeg fridge

Although the refrigerator line wasn’t introduced until 1990s, its iconic mid-century design makes it feel as though it has been a kitchen staple for many decades. 

Launched in the late 1950s by a family of blacksmiths and kitchen builders, Smeg produced one of the first gas cookers with an automatic switch-on function. Their line of ovens, dishwashers, sinks, hoods, and refrigerators soon followed.
