“Driving innovation in the kitchen is more than features; it’s a holistic approach that encompasses stylish design with an eye towards the environment,” said Fishler. “Our LG Studio line empowers the creation of a sophisticated kitchen design with the latest features, all while providing outstanding energy-saving technology and smart innovations.”
Fishler said LG’s Studio suite features an uncompromising approach in design and function, offering a sophisticated aesthetic to enhance every kitchen’s décor. With innovative LG features, a full two-year limited warranty and premium stainless steel finish, the line complements the modern, sustainable home — and showcases an innovative approach towards design.

The ENERGY STAR® qualified Side-by-Side Refrigerator adheres to rigorous energy standards — using at least 20 percent less energy than required by federal standards —and uncompromising design principles. The Side-by-Side Refrigerator offers the greatest capacity of any 42-inch width Side-by-Side Refrigerator*, while the Three-Door French-Door Refrigerator offers among the largest storage capacity in a counter-depth model, helping to deliver a more integrated look. An exclusive feature in the counter-depth category, the Three-Door model offers LG’s convenient Door-in-Door™ innovation, consisting of a compartment inside one of the refrigerator doors allowing consumers easier access to everyday foods.
