The iconic Smeg fridge is getting a spring makeover with launch of three striking new colours

The world's most famous retro fridge now comes in fashionable new-season shades

The 50s style Smeg fridge is one of the most recognisable kitchen appliances of all time – up there with Dualit toasters and Kitchenaid mixers. What all of these kitchen icons have in common are good looks as well as expertise.

The brand has established itself as the go-to for cheerful coloured kitchen appliances. This season the high-desirable fridge is getting a makeover, thanks to three new colourways. The new shades join an already vibrant range of 10 colours currently giving fridges the feel-good factor.
