The swinging 60s was the age of peace, love and flower power. With psychedelic colours, large prints and bold furniture, the purpose of style at this time was to create impact. The world embraced pop culture and the Space Race, which drove changes and new trends in architecture and design, as well as fashion. Colours such as bright oranges, yellows, reds and blues exploded onto walls, furnishings and accessories fueling a fun, bold atmosphere without boundaries.
