Philadelphia, PA — March 20, 2019 — Almo Premium Appliances (BOOTH #271), distributor of premium products for indoor and outdoor living, is showcasing exclusive luxury appliance designs from top brands this week at the Architectural Digest Design Show, taking place at Piers 92 & 94 in New York City, March 21-24. Represented brands include Liebherr, Sharp, American Range, U-Line and Faber Ventilation.

According to Steve Terry, senior vice president and COO for Almo Premium Appliances, “This year, the Almo Premium Appliances booth is inspired by the design community and consumer trends as it illustrates the breadth of our elite products, in true applications, sparking creativity for diverse kitchen styles for current and future projects.” He continued, “From a compact urban kitchen design; to a sprawling stately space reminiscent to the Adirondacks; to appliances hidden in furniture pieces and a full bar application; show attendees will have the opportunity to experience high-design depicted in realistic vignettes, with the newest products from some of the strongest brands in the industry.”

Almo Premium Appliance’s booth partners are highlighting the following at this year’s show:


For more than 60 years, Liebherr has been the gold standard for state-of-the-art innovation in the refrigeration industry. The company continues to push the limits of technology, convenience and design with the recent expansion of its Monolith column collection refrigeration products. The Monolith product lineup, currently available in 18-, 24-, and 30-inches, will now feature a 36-inch refrigerator, along with both a 30-inch and 36-inch freezer

designed to surpass the exacting standards of the American consumer. Several of these products are being shown in booth #282, directly adjacent to the Almo booth.

The Almo booth highlights Liebherr’s refrigeration, freezer and integrated wine cabinets in a bar application. These multi-temperature products complement any bar design and can be integrated to match and fit almost any space, thereby providing designers more flexibility and creativity with their bar applications. The Almo booth also includes Liebherr’s freestanding and built-in refrigeration units – the world’s quietest refrigeration — and a 30-inch fully integrated bottom freezer refrigerator, which offers premium quality and cutting edge design.



Sharp is putting the spotlight on its top-of-the-line Microwave Drawer™ (SMD2480DS), which features Easy Wave Open for touchless operation. Simply wave up-and-down near the motion sensor and Microwave Drawer will glide o


pen. With the touch of a button or a gentle nudge, the patented Easy Touch Automatic Drawer System smoothly closes the oven to avoid messy spills.


Additionally, the Sharp® Microwave Drawer™ (SMD248CS) stays closed when someone walks by, so children and pets won’t accidentally open it. The concealed, Touch Glass Control panel is easy-to-see and operate at a convenient 45° angle, keeping all of the controls at a user’s fingertips when needed and completely out of sight when not in use. The modern, edge-to-edge black glass and stainless-steel design with bright, LED interior lighting and stylish floor pattern complements a kitchen and pairs beautifully with other stainless-steel appliances.



The Almo booth will also feature the Sharp Superheated Steam Countertop Oven (SSC0586DS). This innovative product is like having a second pair of hands in the kitchen with no preheating or defrosting required. This compact oven can easily fit into tight spaces so it doesn’t take up a large countertop area. And thanks to the premium stainless-steel finish and hidden baking element, cleanup is fast and easy.

American Range

The Almo booth will prominently display the Vitesse Series Cooktop, which is designed to fit a kitchen countertop with style, power and the versatility of a professional range. American Range brings its expertise and decades of experience from manufacturing custom commercial cooking equipment into a stylish yet powerful industry leading drop-in cooktop.

American Range will also show its 30-inch residential gas range with five sealed burners from its Cuisine Series. The sealed burners deliver exceptional performance at every setting and lift off to provide easy clean up. The burners are available in three sizes to serve every need, i


ncluding 17,000 BTU (large), 13,000 BTU (medium) and 9,000 BTU (small).



U-Line, the award-winning market leader in premium built-in undercounter ice making, refrigeration and wine preservation products, celebrates over 50 years of innovation with a collection of modular undercounter refrigeration units that offer advanced technology, aesthetic elegance and seamless integration for use in today’s modern kitchens and lifestyles.


The Almo booth will include the U-Line Nugget Ice Machine designed for a wide variety of in-home applications and featuring the highest ice production and storage capacities in the residential nugget ice category. It produces up to 90 pounds of ice per day and has a storage capacity of 30 pounds of ice with up to five levels of ice density, from soft and chewable to dense and compact.


In addition, products from the 5 Class Collection, which is the most complete undercounter premium offering available, is also being shown. The collection includes 42 models that span three product categories: Beverage Centers, Wine Captain Models and Refrigerators.


Faber Ventilation

The art of ventilation has been synonymous with Faber since 1955. As a leader in the field of domestic air purification for over 45 years, Faber is the largest European range hood manufacturer, installing more than 20 million units to date. By combining sophisticated technological advancements in design and fabrication, Faber offers a ventilation solution for every kitchen.

Faber is also demonstrating its Scirocco Lux Down Draft Range Hood, a 15-inch tall rising down draft with glass and LED lighting.
