Vintage refrigerators made in Italy come as a bit of a surprise. Most of us have never heard of Antonio Merloni S.p.A, at least I haven't, but this company also known as Antonio Merloni Domestic Appliances has quietly become the fifth largest appliance manufacturer in Europe, represented by such brands as Servis, Asko, Ardo and few others. Ardo makes several custom vintage refrigerator lines, including Fantasy with models like Italia, Police, Tulipani, Narciso, and Rosa Del Deserto, Gallery which features Van Gogh, Degas, Monet and Cezanne among others, and Onlyou with vintage fridges Rose, Rosse, Gigli and Sinfonia. Each refrigerator is energy efficient and all are priced in a lower to moderate bracket. But they look fresh and cute, and colors are incredible. Unfortunately, these Italian made vintage refrigerators are available in Europe only. In US, we would go for Big Chill retro refrigerators or Northstar fridges. Antonio Merloni S.p.A.
