Oh, the 90s—an era of “Friends,” Beanie Babies, and unfortunate interior design trends that linger far beyond their expiration date. Remember the old adage, “Everything old is new again?” Well, not when it comes to these design “no-nos.” Here’s a list of 15 outdated trends designers beg you to bid adieu.
