Interior design trends 2024 – Get the 70s revival trend at Flea Circus, Newcastle

  • Advertisement Feature

The 70s revival trend is in full swing, bringing back the dopamine-boosting style that’s perfect for making our homes look and feel fantastic.

Prepare to be transported back to the 70s, a time of vibrant colours, glossy textures and fun shapes. Think wonderfully textured and natural materials, colourful ceramics, and rich, deep tones that add an elegant touch. This isn’t your grandma’s 70s style, but a modern twist where the patterns and materials are reimagined to elevate a whole new look.

For a stylish 70s flair that’s on point without going overboard, choose a few pieces of 70s tech – from vinyl to statement retro clocks. Picture warm earth tones, splashes of colour and bamboo and rattan designs.

And where can you find these iconic 70s pieces? Roll up, roll up to Flea Circus, Newcastle, where the past meets the present in a whirlwind of vintage charm and contemporary flair. Homed in the heart of Sandyford, Heaton and Ouseburn, Flea Circus is Newcastle’s favourite small retailer, a title it proudly won in the People’s Choice Awards.

Step inside and you’ll be greeted by a kaleidoscope of colours, scents and treasures. Over 40 local independent makers and sellers, known as the Fleas, fill every nook and cranny with retro furniture, lighting, art, vinyl & electronics, alongside rails of quality clothing and handmade jewellery. Each piece is carefully curated to bring that unmistakable vintage vibe to your home.

So, if you’re ready to get the 70s flair (no pun intended), Flea Circus, Newcastle, is your go-to spot for adding a touch of nostalgia with a modern twist.
