Last year if you’d told me that LG make washing machines I would have laughed at you Hahah and told you that you were a fool. But the do and they are not white as whitegoods traditionally are.
The first place I stayed at that had one reminded me a lot of Brian Eno.
I have the same model here at home but it’s more renditious of Front Line Assembly.
