Millennials continue to create the new normal. Strapped with college loans, they are marrying, buying houses and starting families later than the previous generation. They are more savvy about how they spend their money – because they are focused on paying off their debt.
As millennials move out of their parents’ homes, or shared apartments they are looking for ways to decorate their new homes with unusual items – that won’t break the bank. They aren’t headed to Ethan Allen to buy furniture, but they want to go higher end than the IKEA that they have lived with for the past five years.
Upcycling (using items in new and different ways) has become a very popular way for millennials to furnish their homes with unusual, high quality items.
Millennials aren’t the only ones jumping on this trend to reimagine interesting uses for antiques. Specialty retailers, decorators, restaurant designers, office designers and movie producers are looking for pieces that they can use to create the image they are after.
If you have a flair toward originality – and a creative eye – you can create a space that reflects your unique personality. A space filled with one of a kind items that has friends, family, coworkers and clients asking, “how do I find items like that for my place?”.
