E Gomme G-Plan furniture

G-Plan advert "New Furnishing Ideas" from E Gomme Ltd from a publication in the sixties highlighting the innovative furniture design ideas by Donald Gomme

The rise of G-Plan furniture began with the ending of rationing on furniture in 1952 that had been around since 1943 during world war II.

In 1953, Donald Gomme designed a range of furniture that could be used throughout the whole house on an affordable budget and the rise of hire purchase brought about a mass market appeal for a modern, contemporary design.

G-Plan designed furniture for the whole house and always made a great selling feature of its interchangeability.

The G Plan Revolution

This book is a historical account of the development of vintage furniture design in the fifties and particularly the sixties. However, the emphasis is on an interesting and entertaining read for the popular market, rather than an academic textbook. The publication is also a good guide for the collector or anyone with an interest in vintage retro furniture. The "G Plan Revolution" is a colourful, hardback, packed with period advertisements from companies such as E Gomme Ltd and Ercol Furniture Ltd. It has 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. This furniture book not only discusses G-Plan, including the history of E Gomme Ltd, but also many other furniture manufacturers of this period.
