It seems in the 1960s that living room furniture became louder, yet simpler in some ways. This type of furniture is often known for its non-conformist shapes, textures, and sizes as well. However, it often still works today.
Not all 1960s furniture has stood the test of time, however. On the other hand, what you choose would depend upon the mood you want to portray.
