Making the ordinary extraordinary is a standout attribute for the top 2014 design trends. Another way to look at it involves reinterpreting the everyday object in unique ways. For instance, this year saw shovels made into stools, business cards as clever icebreakers and even traditional furniture formed into animalistic poses. By putting playful spins on such ordinary objects, designers are seeing a desire for imagination and creativity displayed in the home.

Not to mention that the top 2014 design trends point to a magical element in many areas of people's lives. Since fairy tales and superhero comic books are becoming so prevalent in modern societies of late, it is only natural that this fandom would trickle into other industries including design.
