Iya Turabelidze of interior design company Concretica describes the styles depicted here as Soviet Minimalism. While many Westerners might be more familiar with the bold patterned wallpaper, ornamental rugs, and eclectic curio that decorated early Soviet era apartments, these homes represent a more streamlined approach that rose to prominence in the 60s when minimal modernism became the defining aesthetic of the USSR. These homes even take stylistic influence from pre-Soviet artistic movements like Constructivism and its adversary Suprematism. Art historians might find these spaces especially interesting.
