Discovering a bold, vintage textile amongst my parents’ belongings, I reflect on the vibrant, pattern-rich décor of the 1970s, contrasting it with today’s more subdued home aesthetics. The fabric is a relic of an era that embraced strong colors, florals, and varied textures—a stark departure from the minimalist, restrained tastes of contemporary times. This textile triggers questions about when design in the home was an expressive escape amidst societal upheaval. It exposes something about our current preference for ‘safe’ design and the expectation that our tastes will shift again.
