From iconic design pieces to retro inspired newbies, StyleNest round up the very best of classic 60s design for your homes.
The 60s brought with it many things – The Beatles, the miniskirt, free love… It was also an exciting time for the design industry, when now-renowned designers such as Verner Panton and Marimekko changed the way our homes looked.
Geometric print, modular shapes and bold colour palettes were at the heart of 60s design details, taking everyday objects and making them cool, fun and stylish.
That same aesthetic is regularly referred back to, be it in fashion or in our homes. So, add some swinging 60s style into your living space, be it the garden or the kitchen, with our top 60s design picks.
