Top 80 Furniture Trends in May

From Geometric Lattice Tables to Workplace Vehicle Chairs

— May 30, 2016 — Art & Design
These May 2016 furniture products range from sculptural table accessories to ergonomic office chairs that were conceived by a car brand's design team. While examples like the Porsche RS office chair transform a used car seat into a luxe and comfortable workplace accessory, concepts like Alexandre Chapelin's seascape table are inspired by nature's raw beauty.

In addition to a number of eco-friendly home decor accents, other May 2016 furniture innovations include outdoor solutions like hanging hammock chairs and dual-purpose tables that can be used as a dining surface while also functioning as a pet feeder -- the Reflection table concept pairs a traditional top with a triangular base that acts as a shelter for kittens, rabbits and other small animals.

Additional standouts include branded statement furnishings like a pink Medusa head chair by luxury fashion house Versace, known for its kitschy and opulent home collections.
