To help get you inspired, we’ve chosen five of our favourite 1970s retro furniture finds that are sure to add fun and flair to any room.
CASSINA Maralunga Sofa
One of Vico Magistretti’s most iconic creations, The Maralunga is a classic example of 70s furniture design. With its instantly recognisable adjustable back rests, this stunning sofa oozes contemporary style without compromising on comfort. And for the complete 70s look, there’s also a two-seater, an armchair and an ottoman.
FRITZ HANSEN Dot Stackable Stool
If you’re looking to add some instant 70s charm to your room, you can’t go wrong with some seriously quirky Dot Stools. Originally designed by Danish architect Arne Jacobsen in 1953, a four-legged version was released in 1970 and quickly became a must-have piece, combining colour and charisma with function and practicality.
CASSINA Cab Chair
Designed by Mario Bellini in 1977, the Cab Chair is a real 70s classic, underlined by its inclusion in the Design Collections of the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Comprising a flexible enameled steel frame and covered with a ‘skin’ of saddle leather, the Cab Chair has everything you need - style, comfort and durability.
KARTELL Fly Pendant Light
Although not technically a 70s design, the Fly Light is heavily inspired by the era. Designed by Ferruccio Laviani, the transparent methacrylate light comes in all the colours of the rainbow and provides a focal point for any room.
VITRA Amoebe Chair
As far as striking pieces go, they don’t come much better than the Amoebe Chair! Cool, quirky and surprisingly comfortable, this iconic piece is a perfect example of close-to-the-floor lounge furniture that embodies the spirit of early-70s design.
