These September 2016 furniture trends range from functional bench tables to anime-inspired lounge chairs which prove that plush toys are not just for kids. In addition to ThinkGeek's 'Snorlax Bean Bag Chair,' -- a furniture piece that pays tribute to pop culture's recent Pokemon obsession -- other standouts include mystical buddha seats that are illuminated for added effect.

When looking at the month's functional furniture examples, standouts include multipurpose medical desks that offer various uses and storage options along with portable briefcase desks that are ideal for mobile use. For example, Bestmade Company's 'Field' desk can be easily folded out and features hidden writing tool compartments and a felt mat that doubles as the perfect work surface for users.
