Horizontal Fridge

Make it all eye-level

This fridge/freezer combo is longer than it is tall, and is designed to sit at eye level like some built-in stoves, so that all of your food is roughly at the same level and minimal bending is required.

The double doors open conventionally, but take up a larger swing area.

Cabinets below / above or something.

       Very clever, [Ray]! [+]   

       They say that one major issue with the garden variety fridge is that all the coolth falls out every time you open the door. Having a horizontal unit might allow some coolth to remain inside, perhaps within transparent inner doors to somewhat seal sections you aren't accessing.

       WKTE. GE offered one in 1955 (link).   

       Today, horizontal refrigerators are more commonly installed under-counter than eye-level. Unless you're a midget, in which case under-counter IS eye-level.
