From 1957 to 1989, the magazine Kultur im Heim (Culture at Home) gave East Germans advice on lifestyle and décor. During the 1960s and 1970s, it addressed the use of modern and functional standardized furniture in the home. Do-it-yourself solutions received more attention in the 1980s. In letters to the editor, East Germans often complained about the paucity of furniture featured in the magazine, criticism that often remained unanswered.
