Warm, autumnal colors. Patterned wallpaper. Lots of dark wood. For years, the home decor trends of the 1970s were almost universally reviled (okay, other than the eternally popular urban jungle of houseplants). Recently, though, the decade’s groovy style has been back in vogue, with designers and tastemakers not only embracing with open arms ‘70s hallmarks like rattan, macrame, and shag rugs, but also more generally revisiting the eclectic maximalism that thrived throughout the decade. 

If your style leans boho, you’re obsessed with all things retro, or you’ve simply had enough of pared-back, minimalist decor, you’re more than likely on board with the reemergence of ‘70s style. But there’s a surprisingly great modern source for ‘70s-inspired decor you may not have thought of for retro decor: Amazon. The online retailer offers a ton of authentic-looking retro finds, including affordable macrame plant hangers online and a far-out egg-shaped coffee table designed by Christopher Knight (yes, of “The Brady Bunch” fame!). Intrigued? Find some of our favorite picks just ahead.

With its channel-tufted back and flared wood legs, this sofa certainly draws inspiration from the timeless mid-century modern look, but its green color (it's also available in mustard), curvier silhouette, and rounded edges give it lots of ‘70s charm, too. Beyond its good looks, the space-saving piece has plenty of practical features, too — the multi-functional design not only converts into a bed but also has a split back to allow for individual reclining. Plus, the solid wood frame and durable linen upholstery give it the high-quality feel of a far more expensive piece.

While installing wall-to-wall shag carpeting is probably still ill-advised, nothing will inject your space with unmistakable ‘70s style like a sumptuous shag rug. This one is not only incredibly plush to the touch, it will also add rich texture and a soft, inviting aesthetic to your space. (We’re loving this buttery shade of golden orange, but the avocado green version is pretty cool, too.)

Christopher Knight (aka Peter Brady himself!) has his own line of furniture and home decor, and clearly his time on the set of “The Brady Bunch” gave the actor a sharp eye for groovy retro design. This egg-shaped coffee table from his popular brand embodies the natural color palette and bold eclecticism that defined the ‘70s aesthetic, while its clean lines and simple design are a nod to classic mod style.

The dark pecan wood finish, antiqued gold accents, and bold geometric shape give this table lamp a striking look that’ll elevate any space, while the minimalist linen shade adds a modern touch to the design. It’s great if you want to inject some retro flair into your home but aren’t ready to go all-out with a more obvious nod to the ‘70s just yet.

This would be a great price for one hand-crafted macrame plant holder, let alone a set of three — you’d be hard-pressed to find a better deal anywhere online or IRL. While each of the hangers is a different size, all three are made from the same beige cotton rope, so they’ll look cohesive together, but the staggered lengths will prevent them from looking too matchy if you hang them near each other. Plus, the hangers even come with the hooks you’ll need to install them on the ceiling.

This texture-rich throw blanket looks like it costs at least twice what it actually does; from the hand-woven geometric fabric to the lush tassel trim, everything about it feels elevated and expensive. While the overall color scheme sticks to neutral grey and white, the tassels are wrapped in thread for a subtle pop of color — specifically, '70s "it" color mustard yellow, a hue that's cooler than ever today.

In true ‘70s spirit, we had to include one more classic macrame piece — honestly, you can never have too many. The generous size of this wall hanging ensures that it makes a major statement despite its neutral, natural color. It’ll look great in any room of the house, but it’d make a particularly fabulous (and affordable!) alternative to a headboard above your bed.
