LG adds some 'ice' to the fridge

If you're looking for a fridge with a little something extra, LG has decorated its side-by-side refrigerator with Swarovski crystal--a little sparkle that's sure to stand out in the kitchen.

The Swarovski side-by-side Refrigerator LG

Lately, many appliance designers have been focusing on style as well as function. LG is no different: they've recently released the Swarovski side-by-side refrigerator. This bold red fridge is covered in delicate floral designs picked out in Swarovski crystals. It's also available in white and black and has already won a Red Dot Design award.

The Swarovski side-by-side Refrigerator isn't just a pretty face, however. It has all the bells and whistles that you might expect in an upscale refrigerator model, including a LCD control panel. The panel is blue and has soft-touch controls that make it ease to use. The refrigerator has sensors that can respond to food temperatures to keep the interior temperature of the fridge constant, as well as a silver ion coated liner that protects your food from bacteria, fungus, and yeast.

The less technical features of the Swarovski side-by-side refrigerator are also great: the water and ice dispenser lets you fill much larger containers with crushed or cubed ice and chilled water. The water goes through a built-in filtration system. All these features come with a price tag of $4,299, although the Swarovski side-by-side refrigerator is not yet available in the U.S.
