Millennials (those ages 18 to 34) are seemingly obsessed with modern, minimal midcentury design, called “mod visionary” in the Modsy quiz. Alessandra Wood, a design history PhD and the director of style at Modsy, isn’t surprised. “Younger generations living in cities are likely living in smaller apartments and condos, so a minimalist aesthetic is more appropriate—perhaps even necessary!—for the size of their spaces,”
