Retro Refrigerators from Big Chill


I often marvel at how advancement in lifestyle seems to always lead us right back to something that we originally started off with. I can think of at least a dozen products belonging to my grandparents’ era that are on the shelves of chic boutiques today and are being sold at abominably high prices too.

And while we are on the subject of product lines making a comeback, retro refrigerators from Big Chill are worth mentioning. In this case, the only retro aspect of the refrigerator is its 1950s look. Its functional features are designed along the lines of modern fridges. What then is the retro benefit ? For one, you can spruce up your kitchen with bygone ambience – the Big Chill units are available in a variety of vintage colors and can be a welcome change from the monotony of modern metallic refrigerators. And no need to compromise on efficiency, as the fridges pack in the punch of modern units within their unassuming exterior.

The specs as listed on the website: a 20.9 cubic feet capacity, 3 easy-clean spill-proof glass shelves, a temperature management system, 2 half-width clear crisper pans, and other amenities. A water dispenser and ice maker are optional. The Big Chill retails at $2700 in the U.S.
