Knock, knock. Who’s there? It’s your dishwasher, opening up because you’ve knocked on its vibration sensor. The Miele G 6985 SCVi K20 Futura Diamond Series Dishwasher has no buttons; you tell it what to do with a touch display. An LED light shows how much time is left on the cycle, and inside, more LED lights illuminate the dishwasher’s interior.
This modern Tuscan-style kitchen pays homage to the traditional details associated with the design through its use of color, architecture and accessories. Wood rafters help enclose the kitchen, while exposing the cathedral ceilings and intricate, artistic murals along the walls and ceilings. Simple wrought iron fixtures showcase Old World appeal with a contemporary edge. With massive wooden beams, terra-cotta tiles from Italy and hand-painted frescoes of Italian vineyards — this kitchen cooks up Italian flavor from floor to ceiling. But it's the bread warmer and wine cellar that stores up to 1,800 bottles that make this an Italian paradise. Appliances include two Miele dishwashers, a vegetable steamer, a built-in espresso machine and a five-burner Thermador stove.
