What style of furniture did your grand-mother have?
I believe that the popularity of modern design is due to the popular design for your grand-parents. Depending on your age you look back to what your grand-parents either had or wanted, Victorian, American Colonial, Modern (or what we might call mid-century). If you lived the style as a child (what your parents' liked) it's probably not your current favorite. So, vote on what style you like and if you were emotionally swayed to this style through Granny. Tell us why you love this style.
