Back to nature, with a modern twist. That was a key theme to emerge at the 2014 Eurocucina International Kitchen Furniture Exhibition in Milan.

The move towards a more organic look was almost unanimous, with kitchens mixing materials in neutral palettes, with the occasional pop of colour.

Mid-tone timber finishes juxtaposed with pure white cabinetry created a fresh, open feel. This also provided a canvas that could be easily customised using appliances, tiles and decorative elements, such as pendant lighting. Exposed brick, raw concrete and subway tiles were all used to bring a little industrial richness to otherwise sleek cooking and entertaining areas.

These trends all highlight the need for appliances to offer more than a cookie cutter approach to styling.

White cabinets, subway tiles and mid-tone timber finishes are indicative of current trends in kitchen design. In this kitchen designed by Molecule, these materials are teamed with the Smeg SFA304X Classic Thermoseal oven. This oven has a 79-litre capacity and comes with an EverClean enamel finish for effortless cleaning using the Vapour Clean programme.

Brands such as Smeg stood out for their pure approach to design. Partnering with some of the world's leading architects and designers has meant Smeg has a history of producing appliances that are not only efficient, but also offer distinctly different aesthetics an essential ingredient to attaining a customised kitchen design.

Smeg Classic underbench ovens and the matching compact ovens and cooktops all work well with white lacquer, timber and subways tiles. The kitchen shown above, by the Melbourne-based Molecule architectural practice, is a perfect example, says Molecule director Richard Fleming.

"The clean lines of the Smeg oven and cooktop were a perfect match for the minimalist, utilitarian-inspired kitchen aesthetic. Our client has a passion for Mid-century interiors, and the way the appliances appear to hover in time' is very appealing."

The Smeg Classic Thermoseal oven, designed by Guido Canali, features enduring aesthetics and a comprehensive set of cooking functions, from fan assisted and super cook to static bake and grill. With a large 79-litre capacity, the oven provides ample room to meet entertaining needs.

The second kitchen, above, combines several on-trend elements, with its sleek white cabinets, raw woodgrain cladding and understated pendant lights. This time the Smeg Classic freestanding cooker and concealed rangehood were selected to create a focal point, with semi-commercial styling in stainless steel. This cooker has a 126-litre capacity, and offers seven cooking functions, including rotisserie, static and fan-forced baking.
