Find out which current trends are based on the 80s
Fashion clothing trends tend to go full circle and it’s a very similar case when it comes to interior trends. So many of the new looks and products that are set to be key trends for 2016 have been inspired by 80s interiors. Find out below which new trends that you love have actually been revived in our #Retro80sCool edit.
Bold, brash and in your face, the 80s is a decade famed for fascination with bright colours and the bolder the pattern the better. With neutral colour palettes prevalent in interior trends of the moment, pops of colour in the home are really making a comeback. These Hay printed cushions, perfectly pay homage to the 80s love of bright colours. Their colourful patterns are based on designs by Nathalie Du Pasquier, who was a co-founder of the 80s interior phenomenon, Memphis.
Interiors in the 80s were not known for their simplicity or minimalism. Over the top opulence was a huge trend that’s making a comeback, whether that’s the gold detailing we’re beginning to see on light fittings or the re-emergence of marble, it’s very evident that opulence is back in a big way. British designer Tom Dixon uses a selection of polished gold, mirrored copper and gleaming marble in his interiors to add a touch of finesse and luxury to his designs.
80s style seating
Bold, curved and overly sculpted shapes in vibrant colours dominate seating styles. Ron Arad’s 80s inspired designs remain increasingly popular, including the unique Big Easy Armchair and the striking Soft Little Heavy Armchair.
Jasper Morrison’s 80s Ply Wood chair has also influenced some of this year’s major interior trends. Breaking away from the traditional 80s ostentatious silhouettes, Morrison’s Ply Wood chair has been redeveloped into the 2016 Vitra HAL Ply Wood design of the chair, designed for optimum comfort which we currently stock at Nest.co.uk.
