In need of renovation: 1960s modernist property in Welwyn, Hertfordshire

I’m pretty sure this is being pitched as a redevelopment plot, but I’m more fascinated in this 1960s modernist property in Welwyn, Hertfordshire than the land. Thanks to Daniel for flagging it up. To be fair, you can see why it’s being pitched for redevelopment. This is 1.3 acres of land in a ‘highly regarded […]

1960s modernism: Patrick O’Keefe-designed property in Langley, Kent

This is interesting, not least because this 1960s Patrick O’Keefe-designed modernist property in Langley, Kent was on this site when last up for sale some years back.

Midcentury interior: 1960s-style Edwin bed at Made

When it comes to design, the bed can often suffer from a lack of it. Not so the Edwin bed at Made. This is pure 1960s. If you want something bold, midcentury modern and with more than a touch of ‘Mad Men’ about it in the bedroom, this should definitely be an option. The bed […]
