Top 60 Furniture Trends in July

From Retro Cassette Tape Tables to Woven Circular Chairs

— July 31, 2016 — Art & Design
These July 2016 furniture trends range from retro cassette tape tables to woven circular chairs that fuse sophistication with an element of fun and whimsy. In addition to examples like hot air balloon beds -- a sophisticated piece of children's furniture that brings fairytale imagery to life -- other standouts include color-blocked chairs that fuse vivid hues with sleek design lines.

When examining the month's cost-effective and modular decor options, notable examples include recycled wooden stools, customizable compact sofas and even backpack chair hybrids that are collapsible and ideal for travelers or those who love to spend time in the great outdoors.

Other July 2016 furniture picks include peculiar chairs that are inspired by asymmetry and even recycled currency benches that act as an artful and clever commentary on human consumption.
