Neat Quote About The Definition Of Luxury

"There is a whole new change in the way people look at luxury.  It's moving aways from being in-your-face, conspicuous consumption to how you feel in your environment."

- Pam Danziger, president of Unity Marketing, a consulting firm that studies consumer behavior.  She was addressing the trend towards smaller-scale homes and furniture.

I believe there are a lot of factors that influence this statement.  Obviously we can't overlook the economy being one.  But I think a lot of it has to do with simple Generational differences in priorities and methodologies to approaching life

That was very interesting.  Thanks for the post!  I certainly agree that luxury in its forms changes over age and time.

I personally like smaller houses because of property taxes that keep going sky high.

Right - when I was growing up, everyone had to have a formal living room and dining room. Now most people use the living room for an office or a pool table in a great room or dining room. I love that people are using the rooms for a purpose instead of having extra rooms nobody ever really uses. This may be a bit off the topic of 'luxury' but I think fits in to the overall shift in what people are looking for in a home.
