Call it an obsession of Mad Men, or a result of my parents being from the 60s era, but I have grown an affinity to 1960’s Furniture style.
The 60s was an innovative period, not just in terms of the world where we saw the younger generation in the period starting to rebel against long standing traditions in society. We saw this rebellion in all forms, including Andy Warhol’s famous artworks, the Beatles becoming popular in the US redefining music, and also Neil Armstrong being the first man to walk on the moon.
These attitudes also translated to the furniture in everyone’s household with colour palettes being inspired by the Hippie Era, nature inspired greens, golds, yellow and orange. Styles were mixing the clean lines of Scandinavian contemporary pieces with the newer materials metal, glass, wood and PVC.
We will soon be launching some products that are inspired from this era. Until then, here are some great photos showing insight into the era.
