The top July 2014 design trends are primarily eco-driven. The warmer weather being experienced by most parts of the world inspires consumers to become more eco-conscious. Not only do consumers tend do seek out environmentally friendly alternatives, they're also looking for new and exciting ways to connect with nature.

Brands and designers are meeting this demand by producing both products and services that enable consumers to experience the outdoors in a truly unique and one-of-a-kind way.

Structures, homes and buildings are offering residents self-sufficient options such as the 'Midori Uchi' House, which produces more energy than it uses. Designs like Smartvoll Architekten's 'H House' and the Glass Tree House enable consumers to experience nature in ways they never imagined possible.
