Top 100 Modern Trends in October

From Asymetrical Wooden Boutiques to Minimalist Tubular Lamps

— October 12, 2015 — Art & Design
The top October 2015 modern trends include art gallery-inspired office spaces, asymmetrical wooden boutique interiors and garden-topped shopping malls.

The recently revealed upscale boutique for footwear brand Feit in Manhattan is a stunning brick and mortar statement for the brand. The dynamic interior design was created by Australian designer Jordana Maisie and achieves a refined, sophisticated aesthetic.

A newly announced revitalization project will see the transformation of Silicon Valley's Vallco Shopping Mall, which at the moment is largely empty. The initiative will see the installation of a garden on the mall's rooftop and will also see the creation of a space for a farmer's market.

The top October 2015 modern trends speak to the modern consumer desire for environments that cultivate good feelings and demonstrates the far-reaching influence of the wellness movement.
