The Light Fan-Tastic
We’re big fans of technological design that marries great-looking form with top-notch function, so we’re all over this new DA 6290 Lumen ventilation hood from Miele, the premium German appliance brand. This stylish addition to the kitchen turns a utilitarian product into a veritable light show by introducing a multicolored LED light band into the edge of its slim-line, stainless-steel canopy. While standard preset colors are white, green, red, and blue, there is also a special setting that subtly transitions through all 196,000 colors in the light spectrum; color changeover can be set at one or 15-minute intervals or frozen to illuminate a desired palette. Available for island or wall mounting in more than 200 custom colors at Village Appliances in Port Chester, Liebert’s Royal Green Appliances in White Plains, Berger Appliances in Hawthorne, and Albano Appliance in Pound Ridge. Pricing not available at press time. For more info: (800) 843-7231; mieleusa.com.
