Most great things are born out of necessity, and the Big Chill is no different. It all started with a search for the perfect refrigerator. Thom Vernon loved the look of mid-century style refrigerators, but wasn’t impressed by their small size and inefficiency. So he turned to his nephew, Orion- who was fresh out of product design school to create a fridge with that retro look he loved and the amenities necessary to fit his modern lifestyle. Thus the Big Chill was born.
Due to their success, Thom & Orion were able to expand their product line beyond retro-styled refrigerators to similarly inspired dishwashers, microwaves, stoves, hoods and wall ovens.
