In our last post, we featured the New York City apartment of designer Evan Lobel, which showcases an assortment of luxe ’80s finds. Today we spotlight the treasures offered in his Bond Street store Lobel Modern, which offers furnishings and decor from the 1940s-1980s. With an eye for large-scale items that capture the decadence and elegance of our favorite decade, Evan Lobel is bringing a love of ’80s design to a new generation of enthusiasts.
Are the ’80s the Next Mid-Century?
Today we travel back in time, but not to the ’80s… Our date of choice is May 13, 2007, when the New York Times published an article titled “The Next Mid-Century.” Guess which decade was the focus? You got it–the decade of decadence! In the article, writer David Colman discussed ’80s designers/decorators like Karl Springer, Angelo Donghia, Charles Hollis Jones and Michael Taylor. In fact, these designers often had pieces custom-made for their clients. And yes, it’s still out there, ready to be collected by a new set of design enthusiasts!
