5 outdated ’80s interior design trends to decorate with in 2024 |

The 1980s heralded the era of a ‘more is more’ aesthetic. All around the United States, interior designers were boldly embracing over-the-top home decor trends, like bright, bold colors, fluted surfaces, chintz patterns, and mahogany furniture, into their latest projects, and we were lapping it all up. 

So why are we suddenly returning to the 1980s in design? Many see the resurgence of the ’80s aesthetic as a response to an oversaturation of clinical design, mass production of furniture, and non-color room ideas. In short, the looks from this retro decade offer a welcome departure from the ultra-clean lines and stark minimalist aesthetic that has been so popular as of late.
