It may seem like 1990 was just yesterday, but in reality, a lot has changed since Beanie Babies were popular, roller blades were cool, and you could still feasibly find and use a payphone to make a call.
Cringe-worthy ’90s fashion pieces may be making a comeback, but that doesn’t mean that all ’90s-era trends should get an encore performance. For example, there are a few absolutely hideous home decorating trends that deserve to stay buried deep in the past (along with platform sneakers).
