One of our favorite companies, Italian appliance maker Smeg, has opened its first US showroom in New York at the A & D Building. Although it’s now owned by Electrolux, Smeg (an acronym for Smalterie Metallurgiche Emiliane Guastalla) continues to produce stylish and innovative designs, such as its new line of polished stainless steel appliances designed by famed Italian architect Renzo Piano.
