A part of me thinks that mainstream designers focus more on creating sleeker, streamlined appliances. The general consensus would be to appreciate their efforts, but for someone like me, who gets to view designs as quirky and bizarre as the following… another sleek toaster is like drinking flat Coke. If you enjoy the fizz and appreciate spunk, come join me fitting a hypothetical kitchen with some really quirky appliances!
