Luxury Consumers--What They Want Now

I've always associated luxury with quality, not necessarily quantity or size. I think a small house can exude luxury and quality without being palatial in size. Attention to architectural details and decorative style is another way to drape a home in luxury. A home filled with art, living plants and music offers a luxurious retreat from the demands of the outside world.

Luxury, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. My idea of luxury may differ from yours, but most will agree luxury emerges when our surroundings are rich with what we love and thereby add great pleasure to our lives. Robert Frank takes a look at the life and culture of the wealthy in The Five Species of Luxury Consumers. It is an interesting read.

The definition of luxury is always evolving. Has the recent recession changed consumers opinion of what constitutes luxury? Definitely, and happily the definition of luxury is expanding to include the intangibles of peace of mind, time with loved ones and the ability and time to help our co-inhabitants on this earth.
