One of the things that’s happened with global society, is that our design sensibilities have gotten all swirled around and mixed up with each other.
Whereas it used to be, that each region or part of the world would have a particular look and style, nowadays it’s common to have fashion or décor or design that borrows heavily from all kinds of ancient tradition, ethnic tradition. We live now in world with many influences.
You might have a Buddha statue, and Nordic pattern plates, and a basket from Africa, and a vintage sign from the American 50s, all in your living room.
It’s all mixed up together.
Or in your closet you might find an American jean jacket and Japanese slippers and fisherman pants from Thailand and boots from England and beads from Bali, all mixed in as part of your wardrobe.
World influences, becoming part of your everyday. Ancient symbols and patterns and even color combinations, becoming part of the global consciousness.
We didn’t use to see design like this; we were really separate, regionalized before.
It’s just another way we’re merging, becoming One.
