Top 100 Design Trends in March

From Playful Cat-Shaped Storage to Rocket-Inspired Chandeliers

— March 24, 2018 — Art & Design
Design inspiration can come from myriad places, as the March 2018 design trends show. Depending on the designer in question, a product might equally be inspired by an egg or a chicken, and it would be impossible to tell which of those designs came first. It's thus interesting to think about the inspiration behind the more outlandish of the March 2018 design trends.

With the recent news surrounding the rocket launch of SpaceX's Falcon Heavy rocket, it's no surprise that some of the more science-inclined designers have found inspiration there. Cosine Additive founder Andrew McCalip owes his new chandelier design directly to that launch, but he's given credit where credit is due. The uniquely shaped light fixture has been named the 'Falcon 9 Rocket Chandelier' in honor of the rocket's success.
