Top 40 Furniture Innovations in August

From Coffin-Like Chair Designs to Snore-Detecting Bed Bases

— August 18, 2019 — Art & Design
As seen in the top August 2019 furniture designs, consumers are investing in designs for the home that are not just whimsical but also practical for optimizing their lifestyle, bringing more greenery indoors and showing off their love of particular fandoms. Many fans of the hit show Friends will be eager to get their hands on the furniture pieces and decor from Pottery Barn that celebrates the Friends 25th Anniversary—including the iconic apothecary table from an episode of the show.

While many parents invest in furniture designs that are designed to grow with their children, consumers are also adopting versatile furniture designs like the Floyd Shelving System that are highly customizable and adaptable to different stages of adult life.
