Why 70s Interior Design Is Coming Back

The 70s, a time when funk wasn’t just for listening to, it was bold for the eyes and a collage of powerful patterns in the world of home decor.

From bold colours to vibrant patterns and abstract art, the 70s really was the place to be and see for the best interior designs. As you know, what was old will always be new again. From big interior vintage designs of the 70s to 80s retro designs, this year is accepting all the past decade designs and everybody is totally feeling the radical 70s vibes (totally groovy man).

What was so fashionable about the 70s?


What was so fashionable about the 70s? EVERYTHING. The 70s was a time of bean bag chairs, macrame wall hangings, chrome or vinyl furniture and pure rustic wall designs.

In the 1970s, sitting on a swing wasn’t just for the kids in the playground. With the 1950s creation of The Hanging Egg Chair (By Nanna and Jorgen Ditzel ) adults too were also able to have the thrill of dangling in the air, and in style.

Why is 70s interior coming back into fashion?

Homeowners today are fully embracing the 70’s style, why? Because the colour palette of the 70s is driven by the materials of timber and rattan and all things natural looking. The modern society of today loves the urban feel to their living rooms, full of hanging plants, bold colours, wooden panelling and lava lamps! It really is a look for your home interior.

People with a true love for Autumn and the warm earthy tones really have the feel factor for the 70s. With the current trending 70s earthy tones of mustard, ochres, tans and browns your home will always have that warm touch for a cosy homely factor.
