How Cool Do You Want To Be? | Valentina Cirasola | Interior Designer

In the summer time, when my grandfather prepared to go out of the house, always chilled his clothes in the refrigerator for a few hours and then wore them to keep his body cool through the hot Italian weather. As a girl, I used to make fun of him, it seemed the most ridiculous thing to do until one day I could not take that same scorching heat myself and started to chill my clothes in the refrigerator too. This past august has been unusually hot for northern California. The heat rose up to 90+ F. most of the days, I was looking frantically to keep cool anywhere, even looking at pictures of refrigerators would cool me down.
I saw the picture of La Cambusa Refrigerator and immediately thought of my grandfather.

Cambusa Fridge (Meneghini-Cambusa Fridge)

Cambusa in English translates as the galley of merchant and military ships, depository of food provisions. Cambusa is basically a huge food pantry.
This refrigerator made by Italian manufacturer Meneghini follows the same concept with a few extra optional to the standard fridge and freezer components.
It includes space for coffee maker, fitted pantry, double pantry, ice-maker, microwave oven, steam oven and multi-function oven.
Considering all you get, price is really not bad: Euro 16,400 Vat included (European sales tax).

It comes in a variety of colors and styles, but I think the red model is the most striking. The front face has nautical features: portholes, shutters and nautical handles.
You will instantly warm to these wood refrigerators. They can be customized, they are truly unique and individual as you are.

Meneghini makes other interesting appliances, such as the Mini Kitchen, with a sink on top and storage-refrigerator on the bottom. It might be perfect for a small apartment, or a bachelor pied-à-terre. Ciao,

    I love the story of your grandfather Valentina. My grandfather was a policeman both sides of WW1 and his foot patrol passed his house. He used to pop in for a quick, very quick cup of tea. Because he had to be so fast he used to pour the tea from the cup and drink from the saucer. It was so automatic he was still drinking that way into his 90’s. 😀 ❤

    They are really beautiful pieces! I love the stainless cabriolet legs on the Mia Fridge!

      Hi Nancy,
      You are so right, the cabriolet legs give the Mia fridge a flair of traditionalism. These are very modern refrigerators, that soft detail takes the edge off the square lines and shiny metals.
