80s Wallpaper - Memphis Style [1] | Pitter Pattern

If you like geometric patterns, bold colours and retro inspired design, you might like this 80s wallpaper range from Murals Wallpaper.

These wallpapers are inspired by the post-modernist style of the Memphis design movement of the early 80s.

Because of the cyclical nature of fashion, we’ve seen 80s style making a reappearance in 2016 with its shoulder pads, mirrored glasses, animal prints and wide belts among many others; and apparently, we can expect a lot more 80s in 2017…

Fashion also informs trends in other areas such as interiors and decor. So here we are, 80s revival through 80s wallpaper. What’s not to love?

I can see their boldness nicely offsetting a modern and minimalistic decor… Make them the star of the room!

In 1980, Ettore Sottsass gathered a group of a dozen designers in Milan to form a new collective; Memphis. It emulates all 80’s pop culture references – think Miami Vice and Saved By The Bell, but with some Beetlejuice thrown in the mix. It looked just like the 80s. We’ve seen it influence everything from fashion to interiors, and now Murals Wallpaper have an easy way for you to add an abstract, nostalgic edge to your decor. – Murals Wallpaper

Soft yet bold colour schemes pair perfectly with simplistic geometry to create a bold and brash style statement that isn’t for the faint hearted. This resurgence of primary colours, brave geometric motifs and silhouettes is encapsulated in the Memphis collection. Yeah, they’re a little less kitsch than true Memphis design, but they’re just as experimental and full of fun. – Murals Wallpaper
