John Lewis side by side

They say that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, and the adage couldn’t be truer in this instance. When SMEG and Dolce & Gabbana came together to build a household appliance, the result was a high end luxury collection of FAB28 SMEG refrigerators designed under the direct supervision of Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce.

The collection is limited to one hundred pieces, each of which represents the patterns and scenes associated with the beloved marionette theater of the country, as well as the bright, Gypsy like decoration of ancient, horse pulled carts of Sicily. Apart from the cool appearance, the Dolce and Gabbana Smeg fridges can keep your foodstuff cool conveniently and efficiently at a staggering price of $34,000.

We decided to come up with a list of five more unique and statement making refrigerators.
