It may seem intuitive, but as we age, our home decor聽tastes evolve with us. That inflatable chair or hamburger phone we once thought was super cool聽has since been replaced by, well, more elevated things. Modsy, the online home decor service, decided to dig a little聽deeper into what home styles Millennials love and why.聽The highlight of their data collection? Millennials are crazy about a style featured on one of the biggest television hits of recent years.

The Netflix era is actually a thing, so it鈥檚 no surprise the聽mid-century聽styles you binge-watched on聽the show Mad Men聽are now being seen in your living room. According to Alessandra Wood, Design History PhD and Director of Style at Modsy, the AMC hit聽influenced why millennials聽love聽the mid-century-modern trend. But that doesn鈥檛 mean decor-minded young adults aren鈥檛 putting their own spin on it. Millennials are mixing it聽with minimalist elements, eclectic pieces, or industrial accents to make it feel more relevant.

But it鈥檚 not just what鈥檚 on the television that鈥檚 influencing home decor buys. With millennials preferring to聽live in cities,聽smaller apartments and condos have replaced the traditional home. Nowadays,聽a mid-century, minimalist aesthetic helps聽a聽鈥渟hoebox鈥 apartment look way bigger聽than it actually is. That鈥檚 because, by nature, mid-century furniture feels more open and less bulky. Or, as Wood puts it, 鈥淚t鈥檚 known for being livable.鈥

Whether you鈥檙e trying to make your space something聽Don Draper would approve of, or you鈥檙e just trying to be practical in a big city, you鈥檙e not alone in your decor tastes 鈥斅燼nd that鈥檚 supported by cold, hard data.
