Miele for IMM/Living Kitchen Show

This is a press photo from Miele's corporate offices in Germany for the company's participation in the 2011 IMM LivingKitchen show in Cologne.

Many of the trends and styles seen there -- like these sleek, modular white appliances -- will be making their way to the US in late 2012 and beyond.

Who are those appliances made by?

I don't think anyone can answer that question. If we could predict the future we'd all be millionaires. But white appliances (unlike 1970's avocado green, for example) have been around for generations, with subtle variations in styling.

Karla - The stainless trim most likely came about to merge the stainless look for those that are tired seeing stainless but didn't want to go all white. Because of that I think these could actually be more of a fad and will eventually show that.
I guess the one and only good thing about appliances not lasting long these days is that you won't be stuck with something forever. The bad thing, our landfills are filling up quickly!!
To me, the all white will always be around as well as stainless. Restaurants and homes have always used stainless but because they became a fad people are getting tired of them but I don't think they will ever go out or look dated.
The final conclusion.... It's your kitchen - get what you want and like. Don't worry about others or fads. Heck if you want an old avocado one and can find it - by all means do it. LOL!!!
Sometimes we worry too much about that stuff and lose focus on what we like and say the heck with others.
I'm in the process of building, I have to keep reminding myself of that too!
Good luck.

I have no way of knowing since it isn't a paint company that supplied the photo or a project I designed.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Jamie Gold, CKD, CAPS added this to 2012 Appliance Trends: Kitchens
White will be returning in sleek modular glass-front appliances later in the new year. This photo from last year's IMM LivingKitchen show in Cologne was part of Miele's European line. Many of the appliance brands there were showing similar glossy, glass-fronted whites. Expect to see these styles cross the pond later this year. American manufacturers are taking note; according to Ferguson, Whirlpool already has an iPhone-inspired White Ice series planned for the US market. More:Special Report: Kitchen News from CologneHome Tech: Make a Place for the Web in the KitchenReader's Choice: The Top Kitchens of 2011
Becky Harris added this to White Appliances Find the Limelight
The latest white appliances have a futuristic look. Kitchen and bath designer (and Houzz contributor) Jamie Goldberg stays on top of the latest kitchen trends worldwide. Her predictions for 2012 include a return of white appliances "in sleek modular glass-front" iterations. She also reported that "Whirlpool already has an iPhone-inspired White Ice series planned for the U.S. market."
Jenn Hannotte / Hannotte Interiors added this to The Future of Decor Is Now
The more a design moves into the futuristic aesthetic, the more it can begin to look institutional or clinical. Steer away from this by using cool, organic colors and shapes, like this minty green and rounded, humanized chairs.

Why use white? "White appliances in a kitchen with white cabinetry can add to the flow of the space, which is particularly important in a small kitchen," explains Susan Serra, a certified kitchen designer. Also, "white's reflective properties, especially in large appliances such as a refrigerator, help make a space appear lighter in volume rather than heavier, such as a black refrigerator might."
