Nothing says 1970’s more than shag carpet. So often used wall-to-wall in homes in bright colors such as orange and lime-green. Along with bathroom rugs and toilet covers.
Fur chairs and bedding were used frequently to go along with the shag carpeting. We still see some of this material, just less often. Most commonly in Scandinavian interior design.
The TVs in the 70s were so wide and heavy that they had to be placed on the floor or rolling carts. They became furniture.
Aside from the shag carpeting, nothing else dates a home as quickly as fake wood wall paneling. While wood can be a beautiful wall covering, these old panels are often one of the first things painted or removed during home remodeling projects.
