Does anything scream 80's more than lipstick-red leather? It's a fabric that will forever be associated with the Michael Jackson "Beat It" jacket for us, but for some it might call to mind this sofa, a modern classic of a design, currently being rereleased.

For us, this would never fly in our house. We favor a mix of styles, whereas the Softy most likely needs an uber-modern space to work. And maybe it's because it's still rather fresh in our memories or that the style of the decade just isnt our cup of tea (maybe both), but we haven't been able to embrace the return of the 80's, be it in fashion or interior design. Perhaps we'll have to work on it, or maybe it will be a passing phase. Are you happy for the return, or could you do without the 80's redux? Does the Softy call to you or do you see Craigslist castoff written all over it?
