Modern Classic

A new trend that has been bubbling under the radar is Sixties. A trend that has been seeping into the music industry with bands such as Beady Eye, Last of The Shadow Puppets and The Arctic Monkeys using a chords reminiscent of those heard in The Beatles and many more bands from this iconic era.

A re-valuation of vintage furniture via the platform of Ebay see’s a trend which harkens back to the days of good, simple design classics such as G-Plan side boards, Stag chests of drawers and Eero Aarnio plastic chairs. It seems a re-discovery of this design definitive decade is on the cusp of exploding, with designers such as Prada and Jil Sander jumping on the band wagon, although with a hint towards the style of Jackie O.

Get ready for modern takes on the Swinging Sixties to flow into your homes, iPods and wardrobes well into 2012.
