This past weekend, our friends at The 80s Gallery were featured in a San Francisco Chronicle article titled “Collectors Give 80s Postmodernist Design 2nd Look.” The piece, written by Bertrand Pellegrin, celebrates the return of bright, bold and shiny 1980s furniture and collectibles. If you’re already an ’80s design lover, then perhaps you’ve begun filling your home with treasures from the decade of decadence! We at Mirror80 love celebrating the magic of a colorful scene-stealing collectible, as well as the sleek drama of chrome, glass and mirrors.
Will the ’80s be making a regular appearance in the world of interior design? According to Jason Stein, Associate Director of 20th Century Art at Bonhams, …”I do believe we are on the cusp of PoMo (Postmodernism) being the ‘new black’ in Modernist collecting circles.” Read more great quotes from Stein and our 80s Gallery friends in the article by clicking here.
