The kitchen is the heartbeat of the home. This is the principal theory behind the Appliance Love concept. Appliance Love is the new standard in luxury appliance showrooms, offering red carpet customer service. Designed by Toronto’s acclaimed DesignAgency, the brand new showroom is located at 950 Dupont St., in the heart of the Dupont design district.
The large street-facing windows were created to showcase display elements, similar to a department store. In the front window spins an eye-catching washer and dryer sitting atop a six-foot red-soled stiletto heel. Upon entering the space, clients are not bombarded with brand logos, instead they experience the new face of appliance design and integration.
“We’re excited to create a new blueprint for appliance showrooms,” said Marco Tallarico, president and founder, Appliance Love. “Merging technology and design is the future of the modern kitchen, a traditional retail atmosphere doesn’t cut it anymore. Appliances are the heart of every home and we believe that every home needs a heart.”
The DesignAgency’s goal with Appliance Love was to create a conceptual kitchen where the appliances are not overshadowed by any particular aesthetic.
“Designing Appliance Love, we wanted to treat customers to a unique and memorable showroom experience that was also simple, honest and cool,” said Jamie Phelan, associate, DesignAgency. “We created a warm space with natural wood finishes to offset the industrial setting and 16 foot ceilings. We also developed an innovative box module system for merchandising smaller household items that add colour, life and levity to the space.”
Appliance Love showcases over 23 of the world’s leading appliance brands including Miele, Monogram, Liebherr and Sub-Zero and Wolf. The showroom is about learning and discovering the latest in design, technology and health. One of the feature products is the Urban Cultivator, an intuitive indoor grow machine that cultivates a long list of herbs, microgreens, vegetables and flowers – the perfect partner for at-home juicing. The showroom also boasts a variety of steam ovens, the new standard in healthy cooking. Appliance Love is the only in-store retailer in Canada to carry Door Filter, a patented filter that reduces dust, allergens, noise and light caused by corridor pressure – ideal for condo living.
