    Our neighbors in Cleveland Park in Washington had one in the 60s. Their daughter famously said of it, “My father doesn’t even know how to open the refrigerator door.”

    Calling directors of Mad Men – another amazing onsite shooting location beckons.

    It’s the refrigerator version of a Murphy Bed. Neat!

    Someone needs to send this to GE and get them back in the game. Anyone know why they stopped making it? Seems like a great idea…

    I just closed on a home that had a dishwasher installed so that no bending was necessary. Makes sense to me; why must we essentially do aerobics to get our plates in & out of the appliance?

    That fridge is a hoot! How do I get me one? But more importantly, do you think the current owners like PASTELS??? They might have been missing a baby blue room, but other than that, all the pastels seem to be covered!

    The lady of the house at home in her office. Even a spot for the swivel chair under the counter.

    Oh man does this bring me back to the early ’60s. My father’s best friend bought a tract house, north of Boston, with one of these, in pastel pink. GE made them for contractors, you couldn’t buy one, you had to order dozens or more at a time.

    They also had radiant heating, forced hot water through copper heating coils in the concrete slab of the house that had to be replaced in the late ’80s but that’s why jackhammers were made.
