If you are dreaming of owning a stove and refrigerator in a delicious retro color, here’s another company — Unique Appliances — that recently introduced midcentury-styled ranges and refrigerators — matching pairs — in Ocean Mist Turquoise (aqua), Summer Mint Green, Marshmallow White, and Midnight Black. The company also has retro-design fridges in a few other colors. All of these products seem to be easily available in the U.S. at various major appliance retailers. And scoop for us: Talking to the company this week, I learned they will be introducing a 30″ range — also expect delicious colors — in 2021!Mega thanks to reader Sarah for this tip. She wrote:
Hi Pam! I recently saw these pastel green appliances on Home Depot’s website. It’s smaller (closer to camper size), but is much less expensive than other models. Adorable! Also, do you love the Great British Baking Show too? I would be happy to see if any one is inspired by some of the classic, vintage choices that are in the set design for that show.
Whoa, Sarah, what a great find! I am particularly excited about the stoves. Today, small-sized refrigerators in colors are available from a variety of manufacturers. But retro stoves made new? Not too many options. Oh, and I don’t watch the Great British Baking Show — but thanks for the tip, Sarah, I’ll check it out!
Pricing for this 24″ range on Home Depot is $1,399, as of the date of this story. Googling around, I also see the range at Wayfair and the refrigerators at other retailers. So, there’s the opportunity to shop around.
Company to introduce 30″ range in 2021
As Sarah noted and as the photos indicate, Unique Appliances so far has focused on smaller-scale appliances. The convection gas range is 24″ wide. The retro-style refrigerators come in two sizes, with the largest, 21.6″ wide/8.7 cu.ft.
Why small? Unique Appliance’s very responsive (thank you!) Marketing department told me the company’s roots are in designing, manufacturing and selling small-sized appliances for the off-grid market. The tiny house market also likes these smaller-sized appliances.

The company knew retro / vintage / mid century style was hot, so it decided to venture into this market as well, using their existing products as platforms. I think they did a great job with the retro design cues!
Also, please note I spoke with our product development team, and they did confirm that we are in fact working on a 30” version which will come out in 2021.
Howdy hudee! Thank you, Unique Appliances, for that breaking news, and for all your help with this story. And again — thanks to Sarah and all the readers who continue to send tips!
