The Edit | 70s Curved Furniture

Top Blogs

Just as fashion has had the return of the retro boot-cut, now furniture is getting its own 70s reinvention with graceful curves, finger flutes and plumped up chairs.


Chronicled by Design Crucial and Architectural Digest, the 1970s have skyrocketed in 2019 with fringed chairs and rattan furniture increasing in popularity. Naturally following on from this is the shape-shifting trend of curved furniture, from curvy lounges and fluted chairs right through to organically shaped marble tables.

This furniture design trend has picked up speed and is making its way through the restaurant, bar and boutique hotels scene; adopting the 1970s retro-made modern look for this year.
