I Blame the Economy
The New York Times has a great slideshow of images from the Milan Furniture Fair (which I've been following for years. Just kidding! I've never heard of it).
Apparently this year's furniture designs were "spartan" and "minimalist". My theory is that we're slowly moving away from the gaudy excess of yesteryear (ie. 2007) and will come back around to embracing modest, well-made products that offer good value. And as always, our furniture leads the way.
Also, one of the designers is named Nacho.
