The Memphis Style Makes A Comeback
“Radical, funny, and outrageous” were the words used to describe the creation of the Memphis design style, which arose in the 1980’s as a reaction against the rigid constraints of 70’s minimalism. Memphis design draws from art deco’s geometry and pop art’s bright color palette for a kitschy and free-spirited final effect. This 80’s design style went against the conventions of “good taste” and instead reveled in the odd, kooky, and out-there. It’s been a cult classic ever since.
Now, the freeform squiggles, crazy geometries, and abstract pastel brushstrokes—all hallmarks of the style—are seeing a contemporary comeback. The style’s versatility has led designers to reinvent Memphis styles for the modern interior, with Memphis style wallpaper and wall murals becoming increasingly popular. Memphis doodles like our Scribble Party Pattern wallpaper act as a fun counterpoint to modern minimalist décor, while abstract pastel designs like our Memphis Splash Pattern wallpaper mural bring an energetic edge to maximalist design schemes.
