Exclusive to BlueStar in the appliance category, the BlueStar by Design cutting-edge printing process allows any image, graphic, text, print, pattern or artwork to be applied to kitchen appliances like a range or refrigerator in a durable and smooth, satin-like finish that can be easily cleaned. No other appliance manufacturer offers this personalized approach to appliance design.

“If you can dream it, BlueStar can make it,” said Eliza Sheffield, president, BlueStar. “This unique process of adding patterns or any graphic to a kitchen appliance enables the designer and BlueStar to work in tandem to create an incredibly distinctive, well-designed space. We are honored to be recognized with an award as prestigious as Good Design for our commitment to innovation and superior product design.”

With BlueStar, consumers can not only match any color, but also create any pattern or print, apply any photograph or replicate an original work of art for an appliance design that is not only extremely personal to the homeowner, but can be a signature piece for the interior designer.

Scheduled to formally launch at retail in mid-2021, design inspirations have included textile designs by various interior designers, including Kendall Wilkinson (California), Caitlin Wilson (Texas) and Madcap Cottage (North Carolina).
