It’s a wonderful sign when you can purchase furniture reminiscent of the 1980s at your favorite modern stores. In fact, ’80s-style furniture is creeping its way back into the mainstream. Which styles and materials seem to be capturing the attention of shoppers? Geometric pieces featuring lacquer and mirrors.
Take the City Slicker White Table from CB2, shown at the top left above. Its simplicity makes it ideal for a modern eclectic room featuring furniture from a variety of decades. But its color and sheen make it perfect for ’80s enthusiasts. This piece works well as a side table, nightstand, or even a coffee table when two or more are grouped together.
I don’t know what’s in the Kool-Aid over at Target, but their designers have been knocking it out of park when it comes to hip furniture this year. Their mirrored selections would make any ’80s-lover giddy, and this Mirrored Pyramid Living Room Accent Side or End Table (above, right) is no exception. Its shape conjures the striking form of the Memphis-Milano pieces that captivated many in the 1980s, while the reflective surface is a signature decor component of our favorite decade.
Finally, Jonathan Adler‘s Lacquer Block Cocktail Table (above, bottom left) combines two ’80s staples: low coffee tables and black lacquer. Add a Lucite base, and we’ve struck design gold. As a bonus, this piece also comes in white and orange.
Have a shiny Monday!
