New York Magazine: Here Comes the Eighties

The Eighties - New York Magazine is calling it the "next mid-century". NY furniture dealer Evan Lobel loves the look and has furnished his home with pieces from a decade that is not always remembered fondly for its signature style.

Lobel's take on why its wonderful? He's quoted: "There's a certain decadence to that era that I find really appealing. The scale tends to be large, and the materials tend to be luxe and rich, which makes the pieces themselves larger than life."

His living room features a Pace Collection travertine coffee table and a Christian Liaigre sofa from the era, along with perfectly "chopped" pillows. We loved this interior design tidbit - the NY Mag article pays homage to the father of the eighties-tastic "pillow-denting styling flourish" known as the "chop", Michael Taylor.

It's a pretty BIG decade...and we're wondering - is there room for the eighties in your home?
