35 Vintage Photos Captured People Sitting on the Couches in the 1960s

1960s décor refers to a distinct style of interior decoration that became prominent in the 1960s and early 1970s. Green, (such as pea green and drab), yellow, pink, and orange (such as peach and saffron) hues were popular for wallpaper, carpets, curtains, sofas, chair seats, and cushions, often with patterns or bright flowers.

English decorator David Hicks was an important influence on interiors in the 1960s, inspired by bright colors associated with India. Hicks popularized use of “psychedelic patterns and acid-edged colors,” peaking in the period 1967–1973, a time when there was interest in the Hippie movement and “flower power.”

In the same era, Dorothy Draper, one of Manhattan’s top interior decorators of the 1960s, used ‘dull’ white and ‘shiny’ black as one of her favorite combinations.

Take a look at these vintage photos to see what couches looked like in the 1960s.

  1. These pictures remind me of my family. We don't get to see each other often, so the photos are a valuable keepsake.
