20 Interior Design Trends From the ’60s We Still Love Today

If it wasn’t evident from the groovy wallpapers and midcentury-modern furniture flooding your Insta-feeds lately, ’60s décor is still having a moment sixty years later.

A stroll down memory lane—or a quick Google search, for all you Gen Z-ers—will give you visions of the first walk on the moon, Woodstock, The Beatles, the Vietnam war, and historic civil rights protests. While these events undoubtedly changed the world forever, they also shaped interior design as we know it today. When else did you think space-age styles and boho décor originated?

Ahead, here are 20 ways to incorporate the best of the ’60s in every room of your home.

Boho Design

While it feels like a modern take on eclecticism, the bohemian design gave way to the hippie culture of the 1960s and ’70s. Then and now, the popular style boasts warm tones, natural fibers, and tons of texture.

Add throw pillows to whatever room needs an extra dose of comfy. Filled with a fluffy faux down insert, you don’t have to sacrifice comfort for style. Available in four sizes and all measurements are made without pillow insert.

Macramé Wall Hangings

It’s a tall order to scroll through Instagram and not see photos of macramé wall hangings. And while social media was but a dream in the ’60s, macramé was just as popular as it is today. The return of handicrafts and folk-inspired textiles inspired a macramé revival that spanned both fashion and home décor.

Our floor cushions are the super comfy and style-forward option for the boho side of us all. They’re UV coated to protect against fading and water-resistant so you can avoid scrambling to bring them inside whenever there’s a touch of weather. Grab a few to have on hand whenever seating is hard to come by or for a fun option for kids to use out in the yard.

Moroccan-Inspired Décor

The growing popularity of foreign travel in the ’60s sparked the influence of other cultures featured in home design. Moroccan influences were often seen in homes during this time via textiles, rugs, floor pillows, and ornaments.

Start it from the bottom, get it here. (Okay, maybe revised Drake lyrics aren’t our thing.) What is our thing? Allowing you to express your style all over your home with a feature-worthy rug. They’re made from a woven, polyester chenille for a soft and textured look. Plus, choosing from our wide array of designs, you’re sure to find just the rug to match your decor. Available in two sizes.

House Plants

While it seems that only recently plant parents have taken pride in growing their flora family to double digits and beyond, indoor gardens were huge in the ’60s. It wasn’t uncommon to find potted plants throughout the home, just as you would today.

As experts in the field of sitting down, we thoughtfully crafted our Floor Pillows to be overstuffed, plush, and firm. These cushions never lose their shape, and the high-quality print makes sure the design stays crisp and colorful.

Oversized Fan Wall Décor

Keeping in line with worldly influences, it wasn’t uncommon to find an oversized fan hanging above a couch or bedroom headboard. These days, using this as wall décor looks more bohemian and feels the slightest bit more understated.

Our lightweight, warm Comforters induce sweet, sweet sleep – and take your bedding to the next level. Designs are printed onto the super-soft material for brilliant images and a dreamy, premium feel.

The retro mainstay, wood paneling, has now become a cool and modern staple. The wall treatment effortlessly injects texture and depth into any room, but today’s spin feels more timeless than ever. A fresh coat of paint over your dated woodgrain and built-in shelves, like in this dining room design, is sure to look fresh for years to come.

That’s just math. Add throw pillows to whatever room needs an extra dose of comfy. Filled with a fluffy faux down insert, you don’t have to sacrifice comfort for style. Available in four sizes and all measurements are made without pillow insert.

Stone Fireplace

If you live in a 1960s-era home that boasts original bones, chances are you have a stone fireplace acting as the focal point in your living room now.

Our favorite way to modernize the trend of yesteryear is to limewash it, which removes orange undertones and makes it look more neutral.

Our customers tell us ALL the time how soft and warm our Throw Blankets are (the secret: Sherpa fleece). Even better, they get softer the more you wash them. They’re a perfect addition to any living room couch. Featuring a crisp, vivid design on the front with a reverse white side.

Panton Chairs

If there’s one piece of furniture that screams the ’60s, it’s the sleek S-curved chair you’ve undoubtedly seen in era movies and vintage magazines. The Panton chair shape and shiny finish added a sense of space age-appropriate otherworldliness to a post-war world.

As experts in the field of sitting down, we thoughtfully crafted our Floor Pillows to be overstuffed, plush, and firm. These cushions never lose their shape, and the high-quality print makes sure the design stays crisp and colorful.

Boucle Upholstery

It’s no secret boucle furniture is having a major moment in the spotlight, but while it may feel like a new discovery, the textured trend originated in the ’60s. The popular fabric could be found anywhere from a woman’s closet to her living room décor.

Channeling your inner art collector? Frameless and versatile, canvas prints can be hung on your walls or showcased on a flat surface. There’s just something about the canvas that feels so much artier. Canvas prints available in three sizes.

Shag Rugs

Although the popularity of shag rugs has fluctuated for centuries, they peaked throughout the ’60s and ’70s, usually in bright colors. These days, the high pile trend continues to bring a cozy feel to homes everywhere, but usually in a lighter, more neutral tone.

It’s time to kick back. Our folding stools offer a lightweight, yet a style-forward way to get your lounge on. There’s no better way to experience the outdoors than with your feet kicked back and a cold drink in hand, add in your unique sense of style and you truly can have it all.

Wallpaper

By the ’60s, every dweller with an infinity for home décor had wallpaper hanging on their walls, usually incorporating shades of orange, brown, and green in striking patterns.

Not much has changed since then. Scrolling through your Instagram feed, you’ll almost always find some home inspo that includes a printed statement wall utilizing a peel-and-stick print.

Our peel and stick Wallpaper is easy to apply and take off, leaving no adhesive residue. Featuring sharp, vibrant images, Wallpaper patterns are ideal for accent walls, flat surfaces, and temporary installations (like parties!). Available in three floor-to-ceiling sizes.

You can’t recreate a ’60s vibe without some bold pops of color. The more, the merrier, but when you’re looking for a modern take on the colorful era, try incorporating bright hues in small doses.

Square now means trendy and stylish. (We’ve updated Wikipedia and have word out to Merriam Webster… they’re getting back to us.) With our wood wall art’s multi-square design, you have the power to adjust the spacing between each section to form exactly the right look. Available in three sizes.

Whether you’re familiar with its origins or not, there’s no doubt you’ve seen this chair all over Instagram. First gaining popularity in the ’60s, the lounge chair with coordinating ottoman continues to be one of the most recognizable of all the Eames chair designs.

However, it’s worth noting that there are plenty of replicas and reproductions on the market.

The difference is clear. Our decorative acrylic trays offer a unique and transparent way to serve up some style. Use them to give your next dinner party a little something extra or for a pop of color as a kitchen accent. Available in two sizes.

Midcentury Modern Style

The midcentury modern movement spanned through the ’60s and included architecture as well as industrial, interior, and graphic designs. The style is categorized by natural materials, clean lines, and minimal forms, and an emphasis on function. With a major presence on modern-day social media, we don’t foresee this style going anywhere anytime soon.

With our Wall Murals, you can cover an entire wall with a rad design – just line up the panels and stick them on. They’re easy to peel off too, leaving no sticky residue behind. With crisp, vibrant colors and images, this stunning wall decor lets you create an amazing permanent or temporary space. Available in two floor-to-ceiling sizes.

Bar Carts

The living room essential, also known as the bar cart, got its start in the 1950s and ’60s, providing convenient entertaining. By the ’80s, this portable cocktail-hour staple was replaced by built-in bars. These days, with limited space, dwellers have returned to the classic compact bar cart for housing their beverages, glasses, and accouterments.

Take your seats. Our bar stools, made with durable steel and vegan leather, will breathe new life to any blah kitchen. Pull them up to a counter at your home bar or use them as a stylish alternative to dining room chairs.
