What is Article’s ’70s Edit?
Think retro, with a modern twist. Article’s newest nostalgia inspired collection unearths the best of ’70s home decor, from terrazzo stone-top tables to plush pastel cushions. The best part is the seamless way it’s able to integrate itself into modern spaces. Every piece can be effortlessly matched with any modern fixtures you might already have.
How Do I Style ’70s-Inspired Decor?
The ’70s ushered in a bold era in design, flushing out the drab muted tones of the ’50s in favour of embracing colour. Sunshine yellows, ruby reds, cobalt blues and so many other bold hues became the hallmark of this iconic time period. In the current age, many homeowners favour safe shades like eggshell whites or sandy beiges. While those colours might evoke the beauty of coastal decor, they also risk playing it safe. Much of those pieces lack geometric design or a flare for uniqueness.
But how does one decorate retro without it looking too retro? Consider these tips, paired with our favourite products from the collection:
- The Gota Vault Red Outdoor Pillows pair perfectly with any neutral mid-century modern couch like this Sora Beach Sand Sofa for an extra pop of colour.
- The Skane Green Coffee Table would make an ideal match with the Bakan Earth Brown Rug for the most arboreal look and feel.
- The Aby Drevite Green Loveseat complements the modular design of the Onya Lily White Lounge Chair.
