Let's Go Retro

The 1970’s; a time of boho maxi dresses, bowl cut hairstyles, flower-power & the iconic flares. But it seems this decade is making a comeback! Flares are now the new ‘in-thing’ and bold prints and patterns are quickly making their way back into people’s homes.

The 70s revival focuses on creating a warm atmosphere with a mixture of bold patterns of the key signature looks, as well as the gorgeous velvet materials, statement lamps, loud prints and earthy hues.

At Glasswells we are enthusiastic to see the return of this exemplary era, and are deeply embracing the infamous palette of oranges, greens, mustard yellows, deep blues and earthy browns – they’re back and better than ever!

We understand the desire and adoration of this reborn interior theme, which is why during our Summer Sale we are offering huge reductions and promotions across all our many departments. So now you can deck your home out in the latest 70’s fashions just the way you want it, and all without breaking the bank.

For those who don’t know where to start, don’t worry. At Glasswells we want all our customers to have a stress-free and fun shopping experience. We have provided some fantastic suggestions below to ensure your home is the envy of all your friends.

Paloma Home

Glasswells invites you to submerge yourself in Paloma Faith’s eccentric and opulent world, this Summer. A maximalist place, where faded grandeur unites with the rebellious spirit of rock ‘n’ roll. Playful, superior and above all accessible, each single piece is designed to contribute a hint of escapism within your home.

Along with punk rock in the 70’s came very interesting styles with animal print. Inspired by the pop hits of the 70s, animal print was suddenly everywhere. And to this day, it still hasn’t left. In fact, Paloma Home embraces all things animal print, and uses it to create some fantastic masterpieces in soft furnishings, ensuring you can add some of your favourite print to any room.

Underpinned by a feeling of faded grandeur and retro nostalgia, the range includes sumptuous velvet cushions in fiery tiger and leopard prints against a stylish jet-black background to make it even more striking (if that was even possible). More is always more, with tactile finishing touches such as braiding, piping and ruffles on cushions, making for an entirely multi-sensory experience. Come and see for yourself at our Sale this summer and immerse yourself into a maximalist world.

Parquet Flooring

If you really are wanting that 70’s vibe, then Parquet flooring is the right decision for you. Parquet flooring was one of the most simplistic and stylish flooring trends from the era and still is today, with many people choosing parquet because of its warm, rich appearance and durability.

First introduced in France in the late 17th century, Parquet flooring can be both a statement floor and at the same time bring a touch of history to your home. Parquet wood blocks have fixed dimensions, so they can be laid in intricate geometric patterns. They remain a sign of quality and craftsmanship, and have been growing in popularity for years. This flooring is a fantastic way to introduce pattern in a enduring, stylish, and subtle way to your home.

At Glasswells we stock a range of parquet flooring by Amtico and Karndean (2 of the most best-selling flooring specialists), ensuring there is a wide selection to guarantee you find the right one to suit your interior. From natural wood colours to greys and off-whites, we have something for every taste.

Come and speak to our experts who will be able to ensure you make the correct decision for you and get the best out of your budget. With superb discounts this summer, including up to 20% Amtico and up to 15% off Karndean, come and visit your local showroom and start your journey back to the iconic era.
