’70s Style Is Alive and Well in Urban Outfitters’s Newest Collection
Published Aug 23, 2019 3:28 PM
We’ve had our heads in the past lately, with ’80s trends like terrazzo and glass bricks continuing to dominate our mood boards. But go back just a decade further and you’ll discover a ton of other colorful designs and cool shapes that deserve a comeback, too. While we’ve been obsessing over the Memphis Group, ’70s style has become primed for a reboot, and Urban Outfitters just made it easier to give your home the psychedelic update it’s been needing. The retailer’s two latest additions to its Artist Editions, Maisie Broome of Myfawnwy and Lea Carey, are masters of ’70s-inspired decor.
Yin and yang symbols, groovy oranges and purples, and mesmerizing marbling give their products flower-child appeal, without going too retro. This isn’t time capsule design, after all—Broome’s and Carey’s creations couldn’t feel more current, with their maximalist take on color and unexpected silhouettes. No need to commit to a total overhaul of your space. Just treat these items as accent pieces that will rev up your current interior. Shop our favorites, below, and check out the full collection here.
