The Customizable Fridge Goes Global
The Bespoke refrigerator lineup is expanding to North America, Latin America, Europe, CIS, the Middle East, and selected regions across Asia and Africa.

The Bespoke refrigerator also offers Samsung’s trademark large capacity, convenience, and powerful cooling performance.
In North America, consumers can choose from a 4-Door Flex, a 1-Door Column, or a 2-Door Bottom-Mount Freezer. Samsung created a variety of unique metal colors for the region, including Champagne Rose Steel, Navy Steel, and Matte Black Steel.
In Europe, Bespoke is available in 1-Door and Slim 1-Door options, and Bottom-Mount Freezer models
