Gadgets have been getting the luxury treatment, getting drenched in gold and crystal, for a while, but now even their more mundane white cousins will be going down a similar road of magnificence. The latest release is LG’s Swarovski-encrusted Side-by-Side refrigerator, also decorated with painterly floral patterns.
While most bling-gadgets are too over-the-top for most, this one is well-priced and seems to be targeted at the sophisticated, design-savvy crowd, and not just your Hermes-toting neighbour. And the most endearing part? The fridge is also feature rich, with cool functions such as the Miracle Zone that allows users to select the ideal temperature for any type of food produce, and Biosilver, a silver-ion coated liner that protects food items against bacteria, fungus and yeast.
