Top 100 Design Trends in August

From Custom Closet Designs to Toy-Inspired Planters

— August 28, 2021 — Art & Design
The August 2021 designs have brought a collection of unique ideas that exemplify distinctive visions and remarkable aesthetics. Many of the designs share a common ethos of functionality, customization, and eco-consciousness. Whether it's repurposed furniture collections or eco-friendly resealable cans, everything is designed with a purpose.

The FlexiSpot Modish Standing Desk is a sleek bamboo desk, designed to create a relaxed working atmosphere. The desk is made using durable materials and is completed with socket outlets to create a smooth working experience. The desk can be customized to any height and comes with a child lock to secure the desk into place.

While the CMF planter - inspired by the classic 'Slinky' toy - is an aesthetically conscious design that is sleek and sophisticated. Made with elastic steel, the planter comes in various heights and is suitable for indoor and outdoor spaces.
