Top 70 Modern Trends in November

From Adjustable Artistic Blinds to Compact One-Bedroom Abodes

— November 24, 2018 — Art & Design
These November 2018 modern trends explore a variety of sleek, minimalist and functional design innovations. Standouts in the architecture realm include architect Flavio Castro's bold 'Box House' project, located in the heart of São Paulo, Brazil. The FCstudio project seamlessly blends open-concept spaces that embody comfort with an abundance of natural light with a single bedroom that offers more privacy.

When it comes to unique home decor, products lile Natchar Sawatdichai's collection of artful, adjustable blinds marry sustainable design with playfulness. The window coverings are muted in color, are paper-crafted and are sculptural in their look and feel. Additionally, examples like João Charrua's surrealist origami sculptures push the boundaries of paper as a medium while embracing a more maximalist and playful aesthetic.

Other November 2018 modern trends to note include recycled aluminum desk lamps and understated piped seating collections among others.
