Retro style refrigerators for your 40s 50s or 60s kitchen – from Big Chill


If you are looking for a vintage style refrigerator, the folks at Big Chill now have two sizes. I kind of like the look of the new, little one – it is more in the scale of what I’ve seen on true examples from the 40s and early 50s in particular. And they certainly do have the rainbow of retro colors covered.

    Yeah, many years ago I looked into getting a Big Chill (I love British decorating magazines and the Big Chill is advertised in them) and they are very very expensive in the states, if you can get one. Why can’t we have super cool fridges?

    I checked out the website but it isn’t available in my country, at least not with repair-ability. Doh.

    I’m in the market for new appliances but retro-looking stuff isn’t available locally.
