Minimalism the New Black?

Although so much of the “American Dream” has involved acquiring things, the “tidying up” trend has taken over. No longer is a growing mass of possessions — clothes, gadgets, collections — indicative of social standing. Instead minimalism is the new luxury.   WHO IS “MINIMALISM” FOR? Good design isn’t cheap.
