The top 2014 modern trends range from art and home decor to design and architecture, but regardless of the variety, there is an emphasis on minimalism within each category.

Designers took a less-is-more approach in terms of furniture and design in 2014, but just because they stripped their work of bells and whistles, doesn't mean that it was uninteresting. Rather, the designers focused on abstract forms and atypical silhouettes that, though simple, were instantly visually engaging. The emphasis on simplicity offered a cleaner, more refined look, but also allowed the designers to concentrate on providing extreme functionality.

Overall, modern trends in 2014 were dedicated to reducing visual clutter and increasing performance, whether in terms of a space, a product or a piece of art.
