When Sarah Robertson, principal at New York–based Studio Dearborn, was designing her own kitchen six years ago, the only way she could achieve the illustrious plumbago finish of her dreams was to take the door off her oven and send it out to a motorcycle painter for a match. Happily for her clients today, Italian luxury kitchen and bath brand Bertazzoni has begun to offer that very colorway—called Carbonio—across its entire product line: ranges, cooktops, refrigerators, dishwashers and more. “I already know it’s going to be a favorite of mine,” she says.

Robertson got an early look at the “unique yet surprisingly harmonious” Carbonio collection while visiting the Bertazzoni booth at the recent Kitchen & Bath Industry Show in Las Vegas, where the company was basking in the (energy-efficient, eco-friendly) afterglow of having won a Best of KBIS 2024 gold award for its innovatively styled 48-inch induction range in the tactile new finish. From the show floor, she and Paolo Bertazzoni, president and CEO of the company, spoke with Business of Home about the many benefits of induction cooking, the contemporary beauty of the Carbonio hue, and the gleaming possibilities of customizing appliance hardware by choosing copper, nickel and gold knobs and finials from Bertazzoni’s Collezione Metalli. “I can’t wait to see what they come up with next,” says Robertson.
