The 1970s: glitz and glam was definitely in… mini-skirts, bell bottom jeans and plenty of bright, bold colours. In the charts, David Bowie, The Sex Pistols and ABBA were flying high…kids were playing on their Space Hoppers and Chopper bikes… and dishes such as prawn cocktail for starters, steak for mains and black forest gateau for afters were the order of the menu for many British households.
Geometric designs were also very popular in the Seventies, designers loving the crisp, clean patterned shapes in furniture, flooring and interiors. Nearly fifty years later and this style is making a comeback; although this time the colours and designs have a more refined look, perfect for those who like a more vintage or retro feel in their French home.
Carpets and rugs with geometric patterns and designs will add strong visual interest and brighten up a room – and can be ideal for staircases too.
Award-winning UK based manufacturer Alternative Flooring has an excellent range of contemporary geometrics as well as florals, paisleys and animal prints, including the Quirky B Liberty Fashion collection.
Working with some of Britain’s leading interior designers, Alternative Flooring offer high quality carpets which will create real impact: Quirky B Cube, the Margo Selby Collection with its emphasis on angular, geometric and diamond-shaped carpets, honeycomb, inter-woven chain links and fun animal prints.
