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.

real_headhoncho: If you are going to bring back a style, bring back this stuff.

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.

brimed03: If the 80s all looked like this... the past would have been so bright we'd all have needed shades.

We did need shades. We even wore them at night.

Duane Dibbley: DarkVader: But no architectural style in history is worse than Brutalism.

[ image 405x600]

I do like some of it. If nothing else, it's certainly dramatic. Nice places for film and photography locations. While the ones that are little more than a single giant concrete box are dull, more complex uses of the form can be quite appealing to me.

Mein Fuhrer I Can Walk: DarkVader: real_headhoncho: If you are going to bring back a style, bring back this stuff.

Deco is nice, I'll absolutely be the first to admit that.  But it's time for a serious revival.  I mean, that stuff has REAL style.

Are you having a laugh, m8?

Rococo and Late Baroque are hideous.

ACK! Rose and chintz!?!?? Give me eye bleach, stat!

Oh Ho!

Notabunny: 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.

My gawdy addition to our living room. It aint pretty but it's a Lazy Boy rocker/recliner and comfy. Also it doesn't take up an acre of floor space. Very blue.

Max Awesome: Why hasn't Art Deco ever made a major comeback? Its far more aesthetically-pleasing than this dumb Barbie playhouse stuff.

Because it's hard to make it look right with particleboard.

Bumblefark: This. Bring back this.

/Note, the lack of visible hex key bolts. I know that might startle and confuse the young folk. But, see, furniture didn't used to come in a box.

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.

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.
