Remember the quirky furniture revolution of the '60s and '70s?

via Clavel Melbourne

In the mid-20th century, home decor changed forever. Sculptural interior design style took over with its bright colours, futuristic shapes and easy-to-use function.

Homes were filled with funky pieces that were both functional and looked good – they also lasted for ages and would be part of the family for many years after they were purchased. You may still have a ‘retro’ couch or dining table that still looks great in your house.

Let’s take a look back at the fabulous and fun furniture of our younger years. What pieces do you remember?
