Jaspers Backyard – Vaulted and oak-filled ceilings were popular in the 80s, which created open spaces for furniture, such as wrap-around fabric-covered sofas. Sliding glass doors are found in most large rooms, mixing interior and exterior living space. Open space was the concept during this era.
Light-colored and beige wall-to-wall carpets are used in many new homes to provide a backdrop for mauve and blue furniture. Front glass entertainment centers were all the rage, showing the newest of electronic televisions and cable. Younger people decorated their rooms in fluorescent colors like hot pink and electric blue, with lots of mirrors and lights. Straight, elegant and durable played a very important role in the style of the furniture of the 80s. Mission furniture and futons adorned family rooms when wraparound sofas were not used, while traditional sofas and chairs winged in the light, the Aerated colors are shown in the living room.
Designers Tom Dixon and Ron Arad made a statement when they began melting metals to create chairs, shelves, and racks, using simplistic, flowing designs, and Jasper Morrison was known for his plywood chair, matching the table lock and under the table layer. Simplicity with grace was becoming the new design in the United States and Europe.
