The 1960s and 1970s marked a sharp turning point in the history of decoration and furniture. Until that point, the world was confined to national and elitist forms of expression. At the beginning of the 1960s, the sector took its inspiration from Anglo-Saxon, Scandinavian, Italian and French decoration. Genres were combined in a frenzied desire to live in symbiosis with one's time. The progress of technology strengthened the conviction that the individual had unlimited freedom and aroused the desire to inhabit in a new manner. Forms became rounder, furniture was in sync with a warm, playful, and anticonformist universe. Colours and decorative motifs took on the brilliance and fantasies of Pop Art and psychedelia. The living environment was transformed into a waking dream in which luxurious furniture in original materials and surprising objects were mixed, associated, for the first time, with early furniture. The end of the 1970s marked the advent of a period in which beauty and classic elegance gave way to a host of expressions that were unclassifiable and rejected any hierarchy. The postmodern period had arrived. Composed of a long introduction that provides a synoptic view and 32 monographs that describe its many faces, this book invites the reader to discover an exceptionally creative period and revels in an abundant iconography. Holding a doctorate in art history, Patrick Favardin has organised exhibitions for the city of Paris on varied artistic, historical and literary subjects for many years. Guy Bloch-Champfort has always taken an interest in the decorative arts and contemporary creation. In 2002, he published Raphael, dercorateur at Editions de l'Amateur, a very successful monograph that brought this important creator to the public's attention. Working with many French and international magazines - Connaissance des arts, Maison francaise, AD, Casa Vogue - for the plastic arts, decorative art, architecture, and design, from the start of the 20th century to the present day, he is naturally interested in decoration in the 1960s and 1970s, which, as in no other period, made contemporary creations and pieces from past centuries coexist. . A panorama of the most innovative decorators of the 1960s and 1970s . A mix of decors and of design pieces that will interest collectors as well as architects and decorators - a brilliant perspective on the 1960s and '70s 300 colour, 150 b/w
