Big Chill was founded by Orion Creamer and his uncle Thom Vernon in 2001 and made a splash with its brightly colored, retro-styled fridges with modern amenities. Since then the Boulder, Colorado company has expanded its product offering to include refrigerators, fridges, dishwashers, microwaves, stoves, hoods and wall ovens, available in more than 200 colors, as well as custom colors. In addition to retro, mid-century-styled appliances, Big Chill also manufactures contemporary-styled Pro appliances that blend modern design, bold colors and serious performance. Big Chill appliances can be purchased directly online.
