Think Madmen and you will get the era I am guest blogging from.
It's the 1960's and I thought I would share decor and design from a time when The Brady Bunch was bringing a mixed family to life, we discovered Plastic and technology and David Hicks was our design guru.
The Panton chair was created, Industrial lights were brought to life, Isola created the Unikko print for Marimekko, Straight line coffee pots took over, the little tulip chair was created, the square wire basket was a decor must have and
Post war optimism was the focus which meant colour was part of the new decor trend.

The Panton S Chair

Published in 1964
The 1st 7 Chapters are very interesting
Our design elements have not changed.
This was the last page advertisement for Blenko Glass in a 1964 edition of Craft Horizons
David Hicks artwork
Marimekko Uniko design
Pastel kitchens were the trend
Bathrooms were coloured in pastels with brights for contrast
Fridges were big and the kitchen became the Hub of the home
Exposed beams and rock fireplaces have stayed architectural features
Our Furniture design is still pushing boundaries and colour has stayed inspirational
Advertising is still aimed at personality, we are just more subtle at making our target market feel acknowledged
