Love It or Hate It? '80s-Inspired Minimalism

Love It or Hate It? '80s-Inspired Minimalism

Flashbacks to the '80s can be tough to pull off, especially when it comes to interior design. But I am strangely drawn to this photo of Fenton/Fallon's new jewelry showroom in NYC. The line's designer, Dana Lorenz, was inspired by the townhouse inhabited by Sigourney Weaver's character in Working Girl, complete with a Patrick Nagel lithograph and lip-smacking chair. Is it working for you?

I like it. But I'd never want to come home to it. It feels too much like a museum, it's too minimalistic and not in a nice clean way.

80s minimalism is an oxymoron. the era is characterized by excess.

The whole Patrick Nagel look just screams 80's to me. I did look at a website for him, just out of curiosity. He died of a heart attack at age 38. Made me stop for a moment. :(

I agree -- this interior does not work. It's hodge-podge. None of the pieces (or surface materials) relate to each other. In minimalism, there needs to be a relationship (in shape, texture, size, colors, or some combination thereof) of the pieces and surface materials. This interior is too disconnected.

I am not loving this. This area is set up a little clumsily. Nothing really flows.

for 80s minimalism, I loved Mickey Rourke's apartment in 9 1/2 weeks. This looks too mish mashed. The desk looks awkward

I don't necessarily hate it, it's just not for me. I prefer cozy and homey to mod and minimalist

Can't stand 80's decor. Would much rather have 60's or even 70's retro stuff.

It just looks awkward to me.
