Live your best 1970s life with some of our favorite of-the-era trends (no leisure suit required). We don’t always associate the 1970s with great style, but lest we forget the glamour of rounded sofas, androgyny, and decadent prints. And no matter what looks you love, you can incorporate these trends with ease in any space.
Curved sofas (bonus points for velvet) add a luxe vibe to the living room, especially when surrounded with colorblocked pillows, wall art, and an area rug. Plus, it’s a great contrast to the sharp, geometric silhouettes of mid-century modern pieces we love.
Whether you DIY or buy, adding a macramé wall hanging to your bedroom or living room is an easy way to add a retro vibe without a major commitment. We love these paired with wall art on a gallery wall or on their own for a singular statement.
For other woven 1970s décor, you can also try a woven rattan rug – for indoors or out – and some texture-friendly pillows that have a handmade look to them.
Who doesn’t think of shag carpet when thinking of 1970s style? Don’t worry – there’s a chic way to utilize that furry fabric. Get the look with a shaggy rug or even some accent pillows.
Retro Color Palette
Avocado green? Throwback orange? Yes, please. Throw in some red, cream, and terracotta for a true ’70s scheme that adds warmth to your space.
Menswear for women was huge in the ’70s, and all of the fashion rules went out the window. Add some androgyny to your look with some masculine textures and prints.
