Top 100 Art & Design Trends for August

From Well-Designed Face Shields to At-Home Improvements

— August 15, 2020 — Art & Design
Whether for aesthetics or entertainment, one of the many takeaways from the pandemic is society's reliance on artists, and this list of August 2020 art and design innovations ranges from fine art to home decor, while highlighting everything in between.

With strict stay-at-home orders in place for the majority of the summer, consumers found themselves with more time to decorate their home. Designers have been responding to this with unique multi-purpose furnishings that help one make their most of their space. A prime example of this is Comet Home's next-gen nightstand, which seamlessly combines minimalist design with modern technology to offer both practicality and comfort. Art is also being used during the pandemic to provide safety for consumers, with innovations like the 'Origami' Face Shield, designed by Jake Rynkiewicz.
