The 1960s Furniture Style

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.

Black on Black Take 2

We hoped everyone enjoyed their long weekend Easter Break over the weekend. We here at Stools & Chairs got some time to unwind and enjoy the simple things in life. Coffee. We were in Melbourne over the weekend and whilst relaxing over the popular cafe’s in their fine city, we found ourselves at My Other Brother, on Burke Rd in Camberwell. We immediately noticed the beautiful black on black theme they had against the hardwood floors. Below are some pics of our Black Replica Bentwood Chairs being used with the famous Black Tolix Stools. We hope you enjoy the photos as much as we did their coffees!

Black on Black is the new Black

Has anyone noticed that the colour Black is making a strong return? While strong contrast colours and standout feature pieces are still very popular, we here at Stools & Chairs are seeing a strong comeback with the colour black. We’re not sure if it’s the upcoming Winter, or a resurgence of minimalist luxury themes in interior design. But we sure love the look of Black on Black as seen in our Replica Hans Wegner Matte Black Wishbone Chair. Only $169, that’s the cheapest we’ve seen in Australia!

Why our bedsides rock!

So a few days ago we released our new Bedside Tables. You can see the post here. We are extremely proud of our product as we believe it is the best quality and best priced bedsides in the market.. Lets take another look at our Union Jack Bedside. Not the detail in the scallop (bottom edging) of our bedside (left) against a leading online furniture retailer in Australia. Not to mention their price is over $200 more than ours.

Also our bedsides table come with a a solid oak table top which is superior to some other examples we’ve seen on the market. Our competitors example above also comes with a rougher unfinished top.
