In your family home, you probably had at least a few of these designs, making your residence distinctively ’70s. Generations that followed may not have known the glow of a patterned swag lamp or the (in)convenience of a table/lamp combo. But, we remember them all too well! Here are 9 distinctive decor items that every ’70s kid grew up with.
9) Ruffled Lampshades
Smaller ruffles were sometimes found on bedroom lampshades in the ’40s and ’50s, but by the ’70s, giant ruffles were now acceptable on living room lamp shades. And in brown no less.
8) Combination Tables/ Lamps
These seem like a great solution until you realize that the table is either too small or too crooked to hold what you need.
7) Vinyl or Naugehyde
Not that this trend isn’t still big today, but it seemed like naugehyde was everywhere during the ’70s.
