A Denim Ref? Why Not!

Have your fill of fun kitchen appliances and more at the new SMEG showroom

Sexy, Buick-like curves, 1950s-diner-style colors, and Italian technology are the hallmarks of a Smeg Refrigerator. Their FAB28 series of refs are the epitome of retro style and have appeared in many cool homes.

Smeg recently launched their flagship store in Manila at the newly opened Parkview Terraces in Makati City. The sprawling, ground-floor showroom has actual working kitchens that showcase their cooking hobs, range hoods, ovens, coffeemakers, and other small retro-style appliances you didn’t know Smeg had!

One wall displays their famous FAB refs, and we couldn’t help but pick out our favorites:

This denim ref.

Denim? As in like the jeans you are wearing? Yes! Smooth, dark-indigo denim with contrast seam stitching wraps this FAB28RDB ref. This is the perfect addition to the ultimate man cave!

This candy-striped number.

Everyone loves the bubble-gum-pink fridge, but this multi-striped FAB28RCS1 is a real sweet pick.

This Union Jack-emblazoned cutie.

Smeg also carries baby-sized personal refs and this Union Jack FAB10RUJ is so cool it almost makes you forget about the Brexit fiasco.

Visit the new Smeg showroom at G/F Parkview Terraces, West St. cor, Arnaiz Ave., Makati City. You can also check out for more details.
