Top 55 Furniture Trends in August

From Flowing Coffee Tables to Ultra-Elevated Bar Carts

— August 28, 2021 — Art & Design
As dwellings continue to become more hybrid – functioning as both a home office and living space – furniture trends have shifted to accommodate this evolved need. The August 2021 furniture trends highlight some key changes in the industry.

One notable example showcased in the August 2021 furniture trends cluster is this stackable WFH furniture piece. The 'uuma' Portable Table and Chair was crafted to "enable professionals to maximize their capabilities when working out of their living space." The item transforms from a simple chair to become both a chair and a table in one. After use, it conveniently collapses into one compact unit. In addition, the hybrid table-and-chair was made from fiberglass to be both durable and lightweight.
