Ornament is Not a Crime

Rebecca L. Gross

The distinctive visual language, bright colours and unexpected materials of the 80s postmodernists are making a comeback. After decades of minimalism, mid-century modern and Scandinavian design, a new wave of architects and designers are experimenting with shape, scale and symbolic references to add expression and meaning to interior and furniture design.

Playing with the themes of postmodernism, sometimes knowingly, sometimes incidentally, creatives are once again demonstrating that form doesn't have to follow function, less is not more and ornament is not a crime. These twenty-one houses from around the world transform the everyday with joyful colours and patterns, the juxtaposition of materials and the celebration of surfaces. Daring and delightful with a healthy dose of wit and whimsy, this exuberant showcase is for anyone seeking bold inspiration for their home.
