Top 35 Home Trends in August

From Squeezable LED Lights to Chic Fortified Farmhouses

— August 28, 2021 — Art & Design
Over the last few years, people have gained newfound appreciation for the comforts of home and the top August 2021 home ideas are a reflection of some ways that living spaces are being upgraded. Whether for the sake of functionality, style, comfort or a combination of some or all of the above, these ideas show some of the creative ways that people are making the most of the space that's available to them. With work-life habits changing, new solutions are emerging like subscription-based office pods, which helps to create a separation between living spaces and the office.

Innovations in home lighting include products with flexible textures or design features, as seen in the LED Incredibulb made entirely from shatterproof silicone and the meandering La Linea fixtures that can be adapted for various locations.
