Wow, what an experience I had at the Samsung store in the Meatpacking District in mid-March. I got invited to a gala event featuring Hilaria & Alec Baldwin that helped the media get behind Samsung’s recent acquisition of Dacor Appliances. As I walked in a half hour early thanks to the PR firm Talk To Current sending a car for me, workers were busy installing appliances on all three floors of the Samsung stores including Dacor’s HUGE in-wall fridge that seems to be almost seven feet wide. What I wouldn’t do to have an apartment big enough to have this beauty. After a wonderful panel featuring Alec Baldwin and his wife Hilaria, Elle Decor editors and Dacor execs which talked about current trends in kitchen decor and appliances, everyone headed upstairs for an elegant dinner cooked on Dacor’s gorgeous restaurant style stoves and ovens. There was gorgeous filet mignon, salmon and Laduree macarons served in artistic arranged plates.
Dacor Appliances are now available in Samsung stores across the country and you will be pleasantly surprised at the prices compared to other luxury appliance brands. They have a great reputation, especially for customer service, and really stand behind their products. Both their luxuriously appointed refrigerators and stoves run about $3,000. Check out their 48″ Renaissance Duel Fuel Range–it’s the stuff dreams are made of for people who want all the bells and whistles!
