Top 35 Furniture Trends in May

From Eco-Conscious Modular Sofas to Flatpack Tool-Free Furniture

— May 30, 2021 — Art & Design
The May 2021 furniture trends touch on a number of emerging themes that correlate with consumer attitudes such as the push toward sustainable retail approaches and flexible, modular design concepts. These themes manifest themselves in both indoor and outdoor furniture pieces.

Stefan Diez's Costume line of eco-friendly sofas is reflective of these shifting attitudes. The completely configurable modular sofas are made with recycled plastics and have interlocking technology. They come in a variety of vibrant colors for full control over customization on the consumer end.

On the DIY side, the staxxiom flatpack furniture collection makes furniture assembly easy–without the need for tools. Because of the furniture's click-to-assemble locking design, it can be effectively moved around the house or filed away into storage when not seeing use.
