The Minimalist


If minimalist design is on the table, they will go all out. This group needs super minimalist furniture that blends in their space (such as a bed that goes up into the ceiling) and contemporary geometric furniture.

The Fashionista


The Fashionista chooses their design for their own reasons, but largely because they love it. They wish to wear trendy pieces and experiment with their style. They`re extremely curious about trend and always thinking about new trends, but are inclined to be cautious about keeping things cheap, as they often dress to impress at their high school and college, but also at their jobs. They`re the second-most social generation after millennials, according to Pew Research, and Instagram is often the main way they discuss their personal style. In the wilds of the adolescent years, they prefer to shop from thrift shops, but they also have a love of department stores and online shopping.

The Contemporary Traditionalist
