New Era of Style to the Kitchen
Charting a new course for industrial chic design, the Big Chill Classic Series mixes rugged metals, distinctive finishes and rich colors, making it easy for style-hungry cooks to turn up the heat.
Big Chill, maker of the iconic Retro Fridge, proudly unveils the new Classic Series, a line of creatively designed appliances that unite a century of industrial design details – rugged metals, velvety colors and distinctive finishes – into a fresh, new look that’s rich with character, seamlessly modern and distinctively American in design.
The Classic Series is the newest addition to the Big Chill product portfolio, which features multiple eras of style for the home kitchen, including whimsical Retro-inspired designs as well as contemporary and colorful Pro-style appliances. The new Classic Series pushes beyond the bounds of historicism — a fresh analysis of function and form, a new aesthetic.
Handcrafted in Reading, PA, the Classic Series is offered in a 30-inch range and a coordinating ventilation collection. Available in six colors – Matte Black, French Blue, Cabernet, White, Cream and Stainless Steel – the line also features four unique metal trim options including Brushed Brass, Polished Copper, Satin Nickel and Chrome. The Classic 1900 Series stove is characterized by rugged, textured metals and turn-of-century inspired knobs and handles.
«Design is as important as function, which is why at Big Chill we are obsessed with creating appliances that offer exceptional, unexpected style,» says Orion Creamer, co-founder and president, Big Chill. Creamer also is the company’s lead designer and the architect behind each Big Chill product, from ranges to refrigerators.
The new Big Chill Classic Series was inspired by American industrial chic design, a movement that finds beauty in aged, utilitarian design. Characterized by reclaimed woods, exposed brick, ductwork on the ceiling and worn textures mixed with hardy metals, this aesthetic works either as an all-encompassing design or just as a small accent mixed with another style. With the Classic Series, Creamer created a new utilitarian design that is timeless, simple and natural in any type of kitchen design.
