Design Through the Decades – part 69
Interior design and home décor in the 1960s in Phoenix homes did not change too much from the 1950s until the last half of the 1960s. In Part 1 of 1960s home décor, we’ll look at Phoenix homes from 1960-1964.
Marble top tables, ornate lamp bases with large lampshades, muted green heavy drapes with valance, sculpted carpet, and chairs not large sofas defined the 1960s.
Similar design theme in this 1960 Phoenix home.
Hanging lights were popular in the 1960s as were tiered tables. This is another 1960 Phoenix home.
Here’s a 1960 home from Scottsdale, Arizona with 1960s furniture. The carpeting, however, is actually from the early 2000s, believe it or not.
Sculpted carpeting in the 1960s usually had thick underpads which gave a soft cushion to your feet. Stereo equipment became furniture by concealing the equipment into a cabinet. Tree trunks with fake leaves were popular design accents in the 1960s. This is a 1961 Phoenix home.
Heavier patterned sofas and couches gained favor with Phoenicians in the 1960s as seen at this 1962 home.
This is a 1964 home in Sun City, Arizona. Couches with bottom ruffles were common. God’s eye artwork could be found on many walls in Phoenix homes.
