The 1960s Home, Paperback

The 1960s Home Paperback

Part of the Shire Library series


The 1960s witnessed a sustained period of economic growth, consumer spending and stable employment.

This hitherto unknown prosperity enabled a market growth in levels of owner occupation and a subsequent boom in the sale of household furnishings and luxury goods. "The 1960s Home" looks at the styles and fashions in domestic housing and interiors between 1960 and 1970.

Although this period has received increasing attention in recent years, much of it has been concentrated on progressive and exclusive design rather than on the furniture and furnishing of the 'average' home.
