Styles are cyclical in nature and as trends come and go we take the good (and sometimes the bad) with everything in between.
An iconic period in cultural history are the 1960s and ‘70's. A time of revolution - in civil rights, in expression, in technology, in art/music and culture. People will remember the iconic sounds of this time such as The Beatles, Bob Marley, Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, ABBA etc. But there are also the visual elements of this period which stick in peoples minds with the psychedelic imagery of the counter-culture, Andy Warhol, bell-bottoms & paisley shirts, bright-coloured Day-Glo fabrics, and retro furniture. But for those who were born too late to experience these golden years, try have a dig through your old folks’ attics and basements, and you might be surprised to find objects from the retro days of old that might be worth dusting off.
We at Cuckoo Collections just love all things retro, and considering the emphasis on aesthetics put into clocks and wall art, we offer a wide range of modern cuckoo clocks, many with a retro-style. Hand-built by our clockmakers in Germany and Italy, these modern cuckoo clocks are a great addition to any home with a bit of character. The beauty of our range is that there is a clock for every look, to compliment any colour scheme.

Vintage furniture and décor has never lost its allure and luster, and you’ll see them continuously gracing magazine spreads and in eye-catching Instagram posts, beautifully integrated in today’s modern design styles. Lava lamps, bean bags, pod chairs, corduroy fabrics, vespa scooters and many more have flocked the Millennial pads and equally DIY enthusiasts hacking, reviving, and replicating these novelty items. Some of our cuckoo clocks are a throw-back to these retro styles not just in colour, but in shape and texture.
