The Oldest Trend That’s Lighting Us Up All Over Again

by Andrea Banyai on February 09, 2018

It was the 1980s. It was the pink neon signs above cocktail bars. The bright blinking blue and yellow arrows pointing you to the drive-thru windows. That’s where neon found its roots.


But today, it’s found its revival. I don’t know if you’ve noticed it (or if you’ve been living under a rock with no access to social media)... but it’s everywhere! This memorable 80s trend has found its way back into modern culture - in fashion in design and even in our own homes! And we’re pretty stoked about it.  

These days, you can’t scroll for more than 10 seconds without flipping past some neon. And I bet you’ve noticed - because it stops you in your tracks. It catches your attention. And that’s precisely why everyone is so keen to get some of that into their space!

And hey -  if you think about it - this isn’t the first time we’ve seen street signage show up as decor in our own homes. The old movie theatre lightboxes that would display the box office lineups were re-created a few years back and were a bomb hit, allowing buyers to stay inspired with their own enlightening, quirky and hilarious quotes - changeable with their moods.
