“One of the things we talk about a lot is the ‘democracy of design.’ I love the fact that design is becoming universal at a certain level, from the Targets to the world to the high end.. There’s this mix of high and low that I think is very appealing to the next buying power. That generation is all about mixing old and new, and high and low.” [6:35]
