Found this blog post tonight on the democratization of design. It links to a full page article run by The Gazette in Montreal.
The basic point of the article is that good design is much more accessible these days - there are gobs of blogs devoted to the subject, stores like IKEA offer well designed, attractive products at affordable prices - even Home Depot and Lowes have more than just the affordable but not quite as attractive products, that people at one time were limited to because good design was expensive, and more difficult for the common person to get their hands on.
