’80s Interiors So Bad They’re Good (or Maybe Just Bad)

Like a lot of people, I tend to remember the ’80s as an era of disgusting excess. But with ’80s influences creeping back into fashion and Ettore Sottsass and his Memphis Design Group on everybody’s tongue, it seemed like a good time to revisit the design of this much-maligned decade. What surprised me, when I really began to dig into 80s interiors, was how many of them seemed quite innocuous.
