Are stainless appliances a thing of the past?

One of our most recent renovations we opted for black appliances for the kitchen. That started a bit of conversation from a few potential clients.  'Are we no longer interested in using stainless?'  

KEX Design + Build Partner,  KV Harper, had this to say: "It's really a matter of preference. Stainless can still look great. My personal preference is to use stainless on white and lighter color cabinets and black appliances on darker color cabinets."

What are your thoughts on stainless? Would you use stainless or go for something different in your kitchen renovation?
