The granite top table in a smaller size would actually make an interesting accent piece.

The rest of it looks like it came straight from some abstract modern art museum. And needs to go back in storage there too...

fark. Yes. One of the few eras of design where I love ERRYTHANG.

The 70s - early 90s were awful examples of design. Probably could include some of the 60s there but at least some of that has a certain nostalgia and clean lines - 'Mad Men' fashion isn't popular for no reason. I fear a return to the designs of my youth, however. Burn it all.

What were those stupid toys that looked like this stuff? Kind of like tinker toys but useless since nothing had a regular pattern of holes or shapes?

On the plus side, I'm sure most of that tacky plastic shiat is so criminally overpriced that nobody I know could afford to own any of it.

Thank farking god.
 
2014-07-11 12:21:49 AM  
Most of that wouldn't look bad as an accent piece, I wouldn't want an entire room done in it though.

You know what? Why not? The '80s were about having fun and not taking yourself too seriously. Things weren't built to last or to be meaningful. They were made to be enjoyed in the moment. The movies were goofy, but fun. There's no way anyone could take the hair or clothes seriously. The cars were cheap and crappy, but for a little money you could have something easy to modify and fun to be seen in. The music smiled! It was a time when people were upbeat and happy and having a good time showing it. I think we could use a little of that right now.

1940s or 50s I could live with. 20s art deco? Please do.

This? no. Just...no.

I've heard the old saying, "form follows function," and I honestly don't see how those forms would function very well.

How shiatty does the rest of your furniture have to be for any of that to work as an accent piece?

Are you sitting around on milk crates, or something?

Useless for the task at hand, just as it was in the 80s. Next they'll turn to software design - this stuff showed up in UI design in the 90s, and was useless there, too. PLEASE NO all around.

Pee Wee's playhouse was creepy. Everything was alive and spying on you. I don't blame him for having to go somewhere else to masturbate.

I can handle a little 80's postmodernism in fashion (and in Tim Burton's older movies). But most postmodern furniture and architecture is horrible.

Meh, the furniture is overdone but I like the geometric lines and primary colors.

Those two American apparel dresses though make the models look bad, and I don't think there's a body type they'd look good on. WTF?

I thought this would be about the neon colored art deco with fluorescent lights that was impressed on my then toddler brain as being offensive even to a child.  The link is close, but not quite it.  As long as we never go back to that, I'm fine with anything.

it's a bit frou-frou for my tastes, but to each their own.

This is the kind of interior design I can get behind.

Fark drywall, it's the devil.  I want exposed materials, concrete, stone, brick, wood, and furniture made of weed, metal, and leather that looks like it could support a rough Samoan sex orgy.
