Flos Snoopy table lamp gets a 50th anniversary issue

The much-loved Flos Snoopy table lamp has been reissued as a desirable limited edition 50th anniversary model. It’s the same lamp of course, one that first appeared in 1967 courtesy of Achille Castiglioni. The name? Of course that’s down to its similarity to a certain comic strip dog. The difference here is that Flos has […]

Duplex apartment in the 1960s modernist Cliff Road Studios in London NW1

If you fancy yourself as an artist, then you might find this duplex apartment in Cliff Road Studios in London NW1 appealing. It’s an interesting building that initially gives the impression of being modernism from the first half of the 20th century. It’s much later. Cliff Road Studios dates to 1968, the work of architect […]

1960s midcentury modern property in Little Shelford, Cambridgeshire

Now this is rather nice. A 1960s midcentury modern property in Little Shelford, Cambridgeshire. It’s appealing for two reasons. Firstly, the design itself, which is one of three similar properties and very much of its era and secondly, the condition of this place. This isn’t a time capsule by any means. A look at the […]

1960s modernism: Design Planning Associates-designed property in Ingatestone, Essex

Quite a convoluted title, but it this is a 1960s Design Planning Associates-designed modernist property in Ingatestone, Essex. This is one of a group of noted modernist properties on the Tor Bryan estate, the work of Design Planning Associates of London and a house wheel you don’t just buy into a single dwelling – you […]

Sculptural living: 1960s Jacques Couelle-designed property in Mouans-Sartoux, south-east France

Thanks to Jean-Yves for letting us know about the amazing 1960s Jacques Couelle-designed property in Mouans-Sartoux, south-east France, which is now on the market. A house or a work of art? I’m not sure. But this sculptural property really does have impact both inside and out. It’s one of five ‘landscape’ houses produced by the […]

1960s midcentury modern: Henry Hills-designed property in El Cerriro, California, USA

From the turn of this particular decade comes the 1960s Henry Hills-designed midcentury modern property in El Cerriro, California, USA you see here. Quite something too, although its originality in places is perhaps open to question. Architecturally, I suspect little has changed since 1960. This is a wonderful piece of MCM in an equally wonderful […]

1960s modernism: John Lautner-designed Tolstoy House in Alta Loma, California, USA

An architect that needs no introduction, with the 1960s John Lautner-designed Tolstoy House in Alta Loma, California, USA thankfully largely unchanged. John Lautner finds are always popular, none more so than the Willard Whyte house in the James Bond movie Diamonds Are Forever. This isn’t quite to that level, but it is rather special. The […]

In need of renovation: Tioga 1960s modernist property in Keston, near Bromley, Kent

It doesn’t look good for the Tioga 1960s modernist property in Keston, near Bromley, Kent. Hopefully someone can save it. Thanks to Faye for tipping us off about this one, which dates back to the 1960s and presumably had a ‘name’ architect behind it. Sadly, we can’t find that name. Let us know if you […]

1960s modernism: Grade II-listed Cockaigne Housing Group property in Hatfield, Hertfordshire

These are always highly popular, so make sure you check out this 1960s grade II-listed Cockaigne Housing Group property in Hatfield, Hertfordshire before it gets snapped up. This one is even more special, as it is only the second time it has been on the market. The last time was 1968. Like all the others, […]

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 […]

In need of renovation: 1960s Span House on the Templemere Estate, Weybridge, Surrey

We featured a stunning property on this estate a while back. Perhaps it could be inspiration to update this 1960s Span House on the Templemere Estate, Weybridge, Surrey. It’s actually more refurbishment than restoration, but if you check the house on the link above, you get an idea of just what you can do here. […]

1960s modernism: Empson Hill property in Kendal, Cumbria

Thanks to Peter for pointing us in the direction of this 1960s modernist property in Kendal, Cumbria. Known as Empson Hill, this is a 1960s build that looks largely unchanged in 50 or so years. Of course, that’s not the only appeal. This is a substantial property in Kendal, which is not far from the […]

Time capsule for sale: 1960s three-bedroom property in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire

Something affordable and full of character. This 1960s three-bedroom property in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire. According to the agent, this was built to an individual design back in the 1960s and according to the eyes, little has changed in the 50 or so years since. Well, obviously some things have changed, with a slight update here […]

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. We are actually going back to 2012 in regard to that last sale, which gives us an option to compare and contrast. Unfortunately, back then, we only used […]

1960s midcentury modern: Dick E. Lowry-designed property in Los Angeles, California, USA

Originality is the name of the game with this 1960s Dick E. Lowry-designed midcentury modern property in Los Angeles, California, USA. The house dates back to 1961, sat in half an acre of ‘forest-like’ land and still largely unchanged in 55+ years. So much to appreciate here, including the walls of glass, the wood exterior […]

Restored Eichler: 1960s midcentury modern property in Concord, California, USA

If you love this kind of house, then I’m sure the 1960s midcentury modern Eichler property in Concord, California, USA you see here will appeal. Yes, one of the many houses built by Joseph Eichler in the middle of the 20th century, all of which are becoming more popular and sought after as each year […]

Renovation project: 1960s four-bedroom property in Winterbourne Dauntsey, near Salisbury, Wiltshire

It needs work, but this 1960s four-bedroom property in Winterbourne Dauntsey, near Salisbury, Wiltshire looks an interesting prospect. The worry here is the plot. it is talked up by the agent (quite rightly) and covers around 2.25 acres. It might be all too easy for someone to come along and knock this down. But before […]

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 […]

1960s modernism: Austin Vernon & Partners-designed townhouse in Giles Coppice, London SE19

Always a popular area, so this 1960s Austin Vernon & Partners-designed modernist townhouse in Giles Coppice, London SE19 should prove a popular find. The house was the work of Malcolm Pringle, then of Austin Vernon & Partners, dating back to the mid-1960s. It’s a house very much of its era, but at the same time, […]

1960s modernism: Renaat Braem-designed property in Ranst, Antwerp, Belgium

Now this is striking. Thankfully the inside is just as cool as the outside of this Renaat Braem-designed property in Ranst, Antwerp, Belgium. Obviously I’m wondering where to start with this one, but I’ll kick off with curves. Yes, the roof of course, but also the walls of the house and the balcony areas too. […]

1960s modernism: Split-level property in Playford, Suffolk

No architect attached to this, but someone has done a good job renovating this 1960s split-level modernist property in Playford, Suffolk. It is described as an ‘extended individual detached bungalow’, one of five similar houses and a house that has been updated without taking away the original character of the place. So cedar cladding, a […]

1960s modernism: Jesper Lund-designed property in Hillerod, Denmark

We are starting the week off with this 1960s Jesper Lund-designed modernist  property in Hillerod, Denmark. I’m not sure we’ll better it either. The work of Jesper Lund (for himself) back in 1969, this is wonderfully preserved property both inside and out. That’s obviously down to the owners, who have worked with the layout and […]

1960s modernism: Roy Lancaster-designed property in Chislehurst, Kent

The agent doesn’t mention it, but we are pretty sure this is a 1960s Roy Lancaster-designed modernist property in Chislehurst, Kent. Thanks to Kirsten for flagging it up. We think this is the partner to another house we featured last year, one of two properties built together  and designed by Lancaster in the late 1960s. […]

Airbnb find: 1960s midcentury modern property in Bermuda Dunes, California, USA

If you want to live the midcentury dream, you should check out this 1960s midcentury modern property in Bermuda Dunes, California, USA. Yes, this is on Airbnb and as such, you can live out your MCM fantasy without breaking the bank. Although the accommodation and the flights needed aren’t exactly a budget option for many. […]

Scandinavian modernism: 1960s Henning Larsen-designed property in Birkerod, Denmark

Huge thanks to resident Scandi spotter Markman for this 1960s Henning Larsen-designed modernist property in Birkerod, Denmark. It dates back to 1964 and considering this is well over 50 years old, still has a good amount of originality about it. The listing also mentions 1985, which we can only presume means a significant upgrade was […]

Renovation project: 1960s Michael Lyell Associates-designed modernist property in Hampstead Village, London NW3

If this 1960s Michael Lyell Associates-designed modernist property in Hampstead Village, London NW3 looks familiar, it is perhaps because we featured one similar last year. But they are very different propositions. This one and the one for sale last year (now sold) was one of eight similar builds, each with a communal lawn fringed with […]

1960s modernism: Clear Architects-designed property in Roydon, Essex

More to this 1960s Clear Architects-designed modernist property in Roydon, Essex than first meets the eye. The title is a little ambiguous too. The house is obviously a wonderful example of 1960s modernism, but the Clear Architects is the practice behind the renovation rather than the initial build. An impressive job too. When we see […]

1960s modernism: Richard Neutra-designed Robert L. Hendershot House in West Hollywood, California, USA

Another house on the market from this noted architect. In  fact the 1960s Richard Neutra-designed Robert L. Hendershot House in West Hollywood, California, USA has just gone up for sale for the very first time. Impressive too. Pretty much in original condition architecturally, the house has obviously been lovingly maintained over the years, offering a […]

1960s modernism: Richard Neutra-designed property in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA

Someone has done an impressive job with this 1960s Richard Neutra-designed modernist property in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. It was built in 1960, but was actually commissioned in 1958 by the Hassrick family. On the face of it, little has changed from that original design. That is obviously down to a skilled renovation and some loving […]
