There's something smart about a bottom freezer.

We loaded our Retropolitan Refrigerator with throwback appeal, then flipped the freezer to the bottom for a style savvy look with easy access. The slide-out bottom lets kids grab popsicles on-the-fly and puts the most-used items at arm level for adults. The Big Chill Retropolitan comes with ultimate modern performance, like Energy Star efficiency, a frost-free design, and clear crisper drawers, seamlessly integrated with an iconic 50s vibe. The solid, stamped metal body pays homage to American craftsmanship, while authentic chrome trim and handles exude the charm of a simpler era. And with nine standard colors curated from our vintage vault, you’ll make your kitchen memorable for party guests and growing kids. Or create your perfect color combo with one of over 200 custom colors.

Shipping Detail


Curbside Delivery $99 per order

»The delivery personnel bring your fridge to the first dry area near your home (usually the garage or front porch).

»If there are stairs or other issues that prevent easy access, the delivery personnel will leave the appliance at your curb.

»You can remove the fridge from its crate and take it into your house. Grab a set of tools, a dolly, a socket set, and a few of your strongest friends. The shipping weight of our fridges is close to 400 lbs.

Inside Delivery One item $349, Two large items $594

»Our shipping company does all the hard work. They will uncrate your fridge, remove the debris, bring it into your kitchen and roll it into place.

»Getting the fridge up a flight of stairs and removing your old fridge are extra charges.

»Our delivery personnel are handy, but they’re not authorized to connect water lines. Many of our customers read through the homeowner’s manual and connect the water line themselves. You can also hire a plumber for extra help.

Fridge Door Removal $95

»This service is often needed with older homes where the doors are narrow. Please check our Specifications sheet if you have any questions.

»The delivery personnel will remove your fridge doors, take the unit inside and reinstall the doors.

Old Fridge Removal to Curb $95

»The delivery personnel will remove your old fridge from the house and leave it at the curb.

»Customers can call a disposal service, as our shippers cannot remove the fridge from the property.

Stair Carry $75

»The price per flight of stairs. (We won’t charge you for one or two steps in front of your home.)

We got the refrigerator and do we love it! Even the delivery guys had to comment on how “cool” it was. When my husband got home he said he wanted to drive it around the block a few times (our car is a ’53 Chevy and they’ve much in common). Thanks so much for making an amazing, top-rate product that gives folk like us an alternative to the gigantic, ugly, silver fridges on the market today.

Thanks so much for delivering my beautiful Big Chill studio fridge.  I absolutely LOVE it.  Your customer service was fantastic and the finished product is super-snazzy.  Thanks again for everything!


We had our fridge delivered 8 days ago, and we are so happy with it. It looks so beautiful in our little adobe house here in New Mexico. Thanks for making the whole process easy and quick. (By the way, the freight guys and our contractors love the fridge, and several people have asked us if the fridge was original with the house.) Thanks again,

Hi!  Wanted to be sure you received my pictures from my installation. I adore them – they look way cool in my 1919 Arts & Crafts Bungalow. Getting rave reviews.  I am an outside sales rep in the interior design field. My customers saw the pictures and LOVE your product!

I just bought the cherry red fridge and I love it. Lots of people ask me about it and I just gave away my only brochure, so I would like another one to share if possible. Send me a few and I can get the word out. Thanks!

The fridge is AMAZING and all my friends tell me it’s their favorite part of the kitchen. I’ve attached pictures of the before and after. Once everything is finalized, I’ll send a better picture that you can feel free to use as a “satisfied customer” reference, if you wish. Best,


I just wanted to forward a pic of our new fridge in our kitchen. It ties in very well with the Carrara glass kitchen. We just put our house in the neighborhood tour of homes and the fridge was a hit. Thank you,


I am the proud owner of a Jadite Green Big Chill fridge which I love and cherish and which is the envy of my friends. Thank you, and thank you also for “making” my kitchen!!!
