Wild Sage was designed specifically to appeal to one of Bed Bath & Beyond's five key customer segments--the "Creatives," a collection of socially-savvy Gen-Z and young Millennials who value experiences, self-expression and authenticity. "Creatives" tend to move more frequently and believe that a home should tell the unique story of its inhabitant. Bedrooms should set a vibe. Bathrooms should have personality. Kitchens should be full of creativity and family tradition. According to a 2020 study conducted by Bed Bath & Beyond that explored Gen-Zs' and Millennials' relationships with their homes:
- 83% said their home provided them comfort during the difficult year
- 78% tried to make their home a nicer place to spend time
- 61% became more interested in decorating/furnishing their home
With home playing a bigger role in Creatives' lives, Wild Sage provides a rich palette for creative exploration and design.
