A laid-back pad is fun to relax in, especially if you have fun furniture – try this sofa from Ikea paired with an orange slipcover for a big statement! This groovy chair is available in a toned-down beige or a vivid green or yellow! If you’re up for vintage sofas and chairs, ‘70s patterns abound at yard sales, thrift stores and online. If wall-to-wall shag carpeting’s not your thing, try a shag area rug, or this fun blue and brown rug.
Accessories are a nice compromise between being ultra-modern and going all-out vintage ‘70s. Protect your vintage coffee table with some funky mushroom coasters. Handmade throw pillows are a great way to add pattern to your room. A gold table lamp adds some sparkle, as does a glass lamp with a funky shade. Add some interest to your walls with this round photo frame. No ‘70s living room would be complete without a nice knitted afghan, either!
