  • What does 1950s furniture look like?

    Furniture from the 1950s favoured simple, clean designs that focused on practicality. Despite the main focus on function, furniture from this decade is known for its stylish and sleek looks.

    Scandinavian furniture, with its modern and minimalist look, took over the 50s. Upholstered sofas, armchairs and other chairs were made with comfort in mind and often embraced floral patterns.

    Laminated plywood offered clean lines and proved to be particularly popular, especially after well loved designer Charles Eames crafted gorgeous pieces of furniture. Think his famous wooden lounge chair.

    You might also find some futuristic or space-inspired furniture from the 50s too.

    Pastel colours, modern colours and Scandinavian colours were all very popular during the 1950s. Soft pinks, light blues, pale yellows and mint greens were the most common pastel colours. While modern colours included bright reds, oranges, yellows and blues. And Scandinavian colours offered earthier tones including browns, greens and greys.

    There’s no denying that furniture from the 1950s was built with function in mind. But you’ll still find carefully crafted furniture that achieves a warm, comfortable and inviting feel. Browse popular designers from this decade, such as Harry Bertoia and Arne Jacobsen.
