Memphis today is a reaction against the prevailing recent trends of white walls, neutral palettes and minimalism. It’s a revival of seriously bold color palettes and pattern mixing.

In a way, the new Memphis-inflected design is doing the same thing as the first time – contrasting the sameness of mass-produced furniture and encourages the desire for the custom, hand-crafted and authentic.
