It was only a matter of time until home designers looked to the 1980s for
inspiration. Showrooms are looking more like a TV set of the Golden Girls rather
than the bland, gray-toned backdrops of the past few years. Color, shapes, and
playfulness are making a comeback. Bringing rooms back to life is the theme for
this design trend.
• Round Shapes – Gone are the sharp edges and squared-off furniture.
Round tables, sofas, and chairs are making an entrance this year.
• Lower Furniture – Just like its mid-Century modern cousins, 80’s furniture
was lower to the ground than contemporary styles.
• Color – 1980s seafoam green and peach have morphed into teal and mauve
this season and taking center stage in home décor.
•Rattan – Rattan furniture is no longer for retirees in Florida or vacation
condos in Hawaii. This versatile material is now a mainstay in homes.
Consider a piece or entire room of rattan furniture to brighten your space.
• Lucite – Clear furniture offers an illusion of floating in the room. Small
spaces become larger by adding clear chairs or accent tables.
• Ceramics – Shell-shaped lamps and art deco-style vases are an essential
decorating element for the 1980’s style.
• Kitsch – Pop Art pieces are back. Think Andy Warhol prints and oversized
novelty decorations like oversized pencils or giant teacups.
Fun is the essential theme of the 1980’s style. As designers put a modern twist on
an old décor, more homeowners are dusting off their 80’s décor and adding a bit
of whimsy to their home.
How about that blast from the past!? Are you ready to bring back the 80's in your decor?
I’m here to help. Got questions? I'm excited to answer all of your questions.
