The Fridge Couch – function, art and recycling!

Fridge Couch 1

We all know that recycling is important. But the Fridge Couch takes recycling to a surprisingly new direction.

Fridge Couch 2

Made by Fridgecouch from old refrigerators that have been recycled, this fascinating piece of furniture comes in several styles:

  • Black leather taken from a 1988 BMW 535i back seat complete with a fold-down arm rest in Harvest Gold, with dark walnut oak shelving, a swinging freezer door side-table, storage cabinet and Ipod compatible Phillips sound system, all built around a 1980 GE No Frost refrigerator
  • A cherry red version made from an old two-door 1984 BMW 325 coupe built around an old GE Frost Clear fridge
  • A Navy blue 1984 BMW 735i back seat with central arm rest in Electric Orange built around a 1983 Admiral Dual-Temp refrigerator

Having any one of these in your home is sure to be a conversation starter!

  • Just what we need — furniture in the thrilling tones of Harvest Gold and Avacado Green.

  • Opposite to 'the hot seat'!

  • Good luck finding a Harvest Gold or Avacado Green fridge. With a shag carpet throw rug.
    You could make one out of a defunct stainless steel one if that's your style.
