Marshall Fridge 3.2 by Thomann
What is extra cool about this fridge (other than its looks and temperate inside) is that you can simply buy it! It’s not a DIY job; it is a custom-made fridge that you can buy! These are perfect for a musician’s mancave or any other musical-themed room.
VW Camper Refrigerators
A few people have managed to turn their otherwise boring white-goods refrigerators into VW themed camper coolers, but these two are the best I could find.
Mobil Fuel Pump Refrigerator
The only thing this fridge is going to fill up is your stomach, as you will probably want to keep going to it just to look at how cool it is! The fuel line, by the way, makes up the door handle and obviously doesn’t have fuel in it.
Duck and Bear Fridges
These adorable mini-fridges can be found in various hotel rooms in Korea. Themed to national cartoon characters, they are cool as they are cute. Which one of these would you go for?
Treasure Chest Refrigerator
I couldn’t find out a whole lot about this beautiful themed refrigerator, but it looks like a pirate’s treasure chest in style. It doesn’t look out of place in that kitchen, but it would have been better to have carried the theme through it.
If you love cats and find yourself often reaching into the fridge to pull out a treat for your feline friends, then you might want to go for this cat-themed fridge! Apart from the weird-looking feet placements, I love this!
This is probably one of the easiest on this list to replicate, with just a few pieces of coloured paper needed. But I can’t help but admire the genius simplicity of making a normal, otherwise boring fridge a kitchen talking point.
Han Solo in Carbonite Refrigerator
Han, played by Harrison Ford, and Leia are captured by Darth Vader in an attempt to lure Luke into a trap. Vader then freezes Han in carbonite as a test to see if Luke could be imprisoned in the same fashion. This storyline is what inspires this amazing fridge.
While it is nothing more than a simple wrap that you can buy over on ETSY, it doesn’t take anything away from how cool and nerdy this fridge looks. OK, so it’s not bigger on the inside than it is outside, but it’s still a great talking point.
