Sydney interior designer Lynn Malone specified Miele stainless steel appliances for her new apartment kitchen. Malone says her previous experience with the brand was a key reason for her choice. Shown here is the Miele H316-1B built-in wall oven and the H137MB Combi oven, which combines conventional oven functions with a powerful microwave.

Lynn Malone’s kitchen also features dark timber veneer cabinetry and reconstituted stone benchtops. The floor-to-ceiling cabinetry conceals a large column and provides wine storage. Miele
