Postmodern Interior Design: Less is A Bore
Postmodern Interior Design is back in vogue, care you love it, or hate it. And it embraces unconventional ideas with an emphasis on playful, artsy, and extravagant style.
But, what is Postmodern?
“Vivid colour, theatricality and exaggeration: everything was a style statement.”
Firstly, postmodernism was a rebellion against the minimalist and rigid structure of the modern design. And that’s why postmodernism is so difficult to define.
Therefore, this elusive design style is one of the most controversial movements in art and design history. Over two decades, Postmodernism shattered established ideas about art yet design, bringing a new self-awareness about design itself.
As its core, postmodernism was an attempt to break free from the practical and often impersonal approach of modern design. Instead, postmodernism celebrates the unconventional, the flashy, and the weird.
Primary colors were prominent in the Postmodern Interior Design. However, later, color became less important as the play between form and function gained more emphasis.
So nowadays, the post-modern color palette also includes a mix of natural and retro shades like avocado, mustard, burnt orange, turquoise, and even metallic tones.
Textures and Materials
In the earlies ’80s, designers used salvaged and distressed materials to create an air of urban apocalypse, a technique that remains in heavy rotation today. Lush materials like velvet and fur are also welcome. The key to texture in Postmodern Interior Design is layering.
Shape and Line
The use of asymmetry increased during the postmodern period, while at the same time straight lines gave way to odd angles and ambiguous shapes.
