This thesis seeks to interpret contemporary trends in craft aesthetics predominantly found in domestic interiors. Concentrating on philosophical ideology and its relation to aesthetic trends, this study gives prominence to the transformation of craft consumption in the twenty-first century, while also attempting to unravel the historical trajectory behind this transformation. It identifies, first and foremost, the specific details and tropes of a contemporary craft aesthetic, and how these tropes relate back to a constructed identity of the user. Kinfolk magazine, and specifically its publication The Kinfolk Home, functions as a case study for the implementation and approbation of a contemporary craft aesthetic. This thesis posits that the development of a broader picture of the landscape of contemporary markets and consumption highlights a subversive message that emerges amidst a traditional interpretation of Capitalist consumption, and demonstrates that crafted consumption can be harnessed for creative and convivial objectives.
