Mirror80 wraps up our week-long focus on the ’80s office by spotlighting red accents, from chairs to desk lamps. Let’s start with a still from the 1987 film Campus Man, in which a college student (John Dye) attempts to raise much-needed tuition money by featuring athletic male students in a campus calendar. In this scene he disappoints businesswoman Katherine Van Buren (Morgan Fairchild), but on the bright side, his office has never looked better! A spherical floor lamp, red desk trim and a bright office chair unify the space:

We end with another image from Mary Gilliatt’s The Decorating Book, written in the ’80s and full of design inspiration. The book is available at Amazon.com–I highly recommend it! In the picture below, red chairs, artwork and organizational supplies add personality to an office space:
