7 Ways to get the 70s inspired modular design look

Modular silhouettes and organic lines are not only eye-catching but make a room cozy too. This is how to get the look

Curved furniture is back and we’re here to covet. This trend first appeared in the 1970s; an era synonymous with bold expressionism. This included but was not limited to design and decor trends at the time. While colour, bold furniture, bulbous accessories and clashing prints were all the rage, all these seemingly loud elements combined worked in perfect harmony. It is no surprise that curved furniture pieces are popular again because as our lives have changed, a lot of emphasis is being put on form and function in the world of design. Curved pieces simultaneously function as art as well as furniture. In small spaces, curved furniture creates flow and in larger spaces, a focal point and a cozy-ness.

You can decide on whether you want to go full maximalist by experimenting with different colours or tone it down with neutrals whilst playing with different textures or finishes instead.

Here are some pieces to consider, as seen in our April/May issue.
