Had random thought: what about only painting the backside of the chairs?

Chipping and scratching will definitely happen and be more noticeable once you paint it. I guess I would say heavily varnish and poly the chairs.

Yeah, this is more 90s. I agree with the comment about the hanging light fixture—for sure the only 80s thing in the picture. The couch's structure is way too contemporary. Couches from the 80s seem overstuffed, shapeless almost...like the "windpants"/"windsuits" of the era.

Also the colors are way too "Pottery Barn"...reds/khakis. Pastels (light pink, gray, teal) with gradient, swooshing patterns and random brush strokes...in possibly a near crosshatching pattern draped into overly-formal, stuffy curtains...that would do the trick. Walls wallpapered in complementary pastel colors, perhaps floral motif. Oh, and these weird matching pastel grass in a vase with an uplight...haha.

Perhaps my view of the 80s is skewed since I was born in 1987, haha. But still, that does not read 80s...come on Lost!
