From Wearable Travel Cushions to Modern Rotating Lights

— October 26, 2014 — Unique
This collection of top October 2014 design ideas focuses on melding practicality with playfulness. As people become invested in getting more bang for their buck, designers are reconciling that desire with their own interest in producing something that is still aesthetically pleasing and captivating.

There is a light shaped like a bird that not only shed a warm glow, but also interacts with the user in a fun way by perching on their arm. The collection of October 2014 design ideas also a dual geometric table that is gorgeously sculptural while providing even more surface and storage to use. Lastly, one designer created a fashionable ring that moonlights as a flash drive so that people can carry around important data in a conveniently stylish way.
