The best elements and influences of the 70s have inspired Art Hide and Amigos de Hoy’s latest homewares collections.
Styled by Greenhouse Interiors, the ranges offer a fresh take on the decade’s opulence. The newest ethically sourced leather rugs and accessories from Art Hide feature rich jewel tones reminiscent of the colours seen in the era’s best five star hotels and which hint at rock star glam.
Likewise, Amigos de Hoy brings elevated bohemian glamour to interiors with a new collection of hand-made and traditional artisan crafted pieces.
“The 70s was a time for rock ‘n’ roll, bold colour, shaggy textures and letting your hair down,” says stylist Julia Green of Greenhouse Interiors.
“Rules were there to be broken, clashing wallpapers dominated, and it’s all sneaking right back in, albeit in a more refined and toned down way, reflected perfectly in the new ranges from Art Hide and Amigos de Hoy.”
From vintage floral inspired prints and patterns to Moroccan influences and other 70s references, the collection’s textile pieces deliver on both quality and style. And of course no 70s inspired collection would be complete without a scattering of gold.
New Tom Tom storage/planter drums pick up where the brand’s popular Joanie and Stevie tambourines left off, and are a continuation of musical references seen throughout the range.
“It has been a blast researching and designing for the latest ranges,” says Bree Hay-Hendry, creative director of the brands.
“I’ve been allowed to indulge my love for all things retro, and peppered these touches throughout the range. For Art Hide we went with luxurious finishes and colours, while at Amigos we referenced the more carefree elements from the era.”
Art Hide and Amigos de Hoy’s collections are available now.
