Interior design and Generation Y = Style, design and appearance

Generation Y which is ages 20 to 37, voted the category Style, Design and Appearance as their number 1 characteristic according to Furniture/Today magazine. Also important to Generation Y is quality and durability.


Millennials also like to mix and match furniture pieces and styles in their home decorating. The trend away from collections or groups is stronger with younger and more affluent buyers.


We are finding that a lot of our Generation Y clients are passionate about design and have a unique personal style. They want their decorating to be stylish and eclectic and they want to be inspired by their environment.


They also want products that endure, structurally and artistically, without harming either the environment or the people who make or use them. 


Remember, Generation Y is more than 80 million strong and has surpassed the Baby Boomers as the largest generational group in the United States.  They are 18 to mid 30's in age and are starting their careers, starting their families, and buying their first home.  They like good quality and comfortable furniture.  They also like items that are unique.


Below are some real life examples of how we mixed furniture design styles for our Generation Y clients.
