Survey: Is This a Décor Conflicted Era?

Survey: Is This a Décor Conflicted Era?

We read this piece in the New York Times (Thursday, Dec. 27), and the identifying "conflict" was a norm that we've all likely become accustomed to. The gist: the "traditional" and "contemporary" polarities in home décor have turned into a marketing conundrum. Naming and describing difficult-to-categorize looks and trends is now a big challenge. Case in point: new categories at American Leather's North Carolina showroom include Boutique Traditional, Clean Transitional, and Modern Contemporary - yet do we really know what any of those mean? While wording and marketing may be enduring a conflict, we want to know if you think we actually live in a décor conflicted era - or is a mix-n-match aesthetic a long-lasting category of its own?
