I agree that appreciating the qualities of a piece from the past as in Wabi Sabi is so important for the future health of our planet. Consumerism still has a benefit to me however when I can collect value items off the pavement at Council Clean up times! Especially in high end property areas. My home is all pre and present loved!

Being “virtuous” would surely include not having something shipped from the other side of the plantet. Keep it local & keep it simple.

Cool trends and hope some of them will stay. Especially being "virtuous" in reducing carbon footprint products and source locally instead.
