The word "Rockabilly" is a combination of "rock and roll" and "hillbilly" (a derogatory term used to define the Appalachian mountain people and, in a generic sense, meant country boor); Rockabilly was a musical genre developed in the early 50s, it was one of the first forms of rock & roll. It was a fusion of bluegrass, country, boogie-woogie, and jazz, originally from the southern United States and was played and sung by artists such as Buddy Holly, Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley, and many others. This genre had a huge influence not only in music but in fashion and the lifestyle of young Americans; it didn't take long for this "culture" to spread around the world in an overbearing and rampant way. A lot of production of all kinds in those fabulous '50s and ‘60s (cars, gifts, jewelry, furniture, accessories, tableware, etc.) was inspired by the Rockabilly style. Our candlesticks with their bright colors and eccentric shape are a characteristic example and will stand out in any type of furniture with originality and vitality.
