Happy Throwback Thursday everyone! Today we are celebrating the 1970s. Do you remember what the interior design style was like over 40 years ago?
Décor and designs change from decade to decade but we have to admit, the 70s had STYLE! Sofas were low to the ground, crazy in design and brightly colored. Lots of LARGE wood was used for dining room and bedroom furniture. Obviously the trends are different now but we still see a hint of the 70s in furniture design!

Accent pieces are still as bright as ever. Crazy fabric designs are still in demand. Designers in the 70s used a lot of plaid fabrics and shag type draping (just imagine the houses in the hit television show, That ‘70s Show). The colors of today have a more sophisticated look that brings them up to date.
Let’s travel back to the 70s and take a look at the furniture designs that were used during that decade.
