Modern Design In Furniture - What the Hip Had at Home

1966 Platner Coffee Table - Modern Design 1960s

Many designers were influenced by the rapid industrialization taking place in Western society, and this was reflected in the furniture designs they came up with. Cozy and warm, out...metallic, modular, slick and minimalist, IN! The Platner coffee table is a good example of 1960s Style Area Rug.this. It is made out of nickel coated metal parts with a tempered glass table top. There are chairs, an end table and a dining table to match!

The retro area rug, while from modern times, is reminiscent of Duveteen appliqué wall hangings from the 1960s which were individually conceived and designed by Jettie Penraat.1960 AJ Floor Lamp

It all reminds me very much of the "Ab Fab" episode where Eddie's friend from the 60s comes to visit, and there is a flashback of there post-modern minimalist flat, done entirely in white.

This floor lamp would fit right in! It was designed in 1960 by Arne Jacobsen to go with his Series 3300 furniture, which included the Egg Chair and the Swan Chair. The heavy cast iron base of the lamp is a sloped wedge with a circular cutout that was originally designed to hold an ashtray! (Did somebody enjoy lying on the floor with a smoke?)
