Top 100 Design Ideas in October

From Feline-Friendly Architecture to Finned Wood Buildings

— October 29, 2014 — Eco
This collection of the most popular October 2014 design ideas includes a wide range of wooden designs -- from homes to coffee tables -- that boast both rustic yet sophisticated characteristics. Designers are turning to nature for inspiration without sacrificing the sleek and contemporary appearances that are so in demand right now.

From the plywood interior residences to the finned wood buildings and the feline-friendly architecture, there is something for everyone's living and style needs.

Some of the more popular ideas in art over the last month are far from anything traditional. The world's first ever human tattoo gallery opened in London showcasing some of the world's most iconic tattoo artists.

For more in-depth examples of the top October 2014 design ideas, check out Trend Hunter's Design Trend Report.
