Product description


This publication will be a historical account of the development of furniture in the fifties and particularly the sixties. However, the emphasis will be on an interesting and entertaining read for the popular market, rather than an academic textbook. The publication will also be a good guide for the collector.The "G- Plan Revolution" will be a colourful, hardback, packed with period advertisements. It will have instant appeal to anyone who remembers G-Plan in its heyday, or those who have an interest in collecting furniture from the sixties or a general nostalgia for the era. The publication will not only discuss G-Plan, but also many other furniture manufacturers of this period. Designed by Sean Murphy of Value and Service, the book is an artwork in itself with a retro feel.
