Top 30 Modern Trends in May

From Minimally Modern Wall Clocks to Space-Saving Stylish Lamps

— May 30, 2021 — Art & Design
Many of the May 2021 modern trends work to accent interior design through stylish accessories. These accessories add character to the spaces within which they reside while boasting functional benefits that make practical differences.

One example, the Sydra wall clock by Industrial Craft, merges time-telling with an integrated calendar so as to promote productivity and maintain a tight schedule. For convenience's sake, the contemporary clock can be synched with multiple digital calendars.

Another example is the Halofalls water feature, which performs multiple functions. The water feature offers an air of relaxation and reflection within office spaces–home or otherwise–and doubles as a mood light and a Bluetooth speaker system. With home offices becoming the norm rather than the exception, these modern accessories bear valuable functionality while contributing to a contemporary esthetic.
