Top 45 Modern Trends in October

From Lunar Outdoor Galleries to Artistically Revamped Tech

— October 27, 2019 — Art & Design
These October 2019 modern ideas range from lunar outdoor galleries to artistically revamped tech accessories. When looking at art and design innovations, this month's examples include Toronto's temporary Museum of the Moon pop-up which was set up under a busy highway's underpass, along with the 'Lily' hanging lamp which interacts with sound, aiming to redistribute the tone of echos.

When looking at architecture innovations, standouts include self-contained private workspaces and accessible campground cabins that fuse practicality and comfort with sleek aesthetics.

Other October 2019 modern trends to note include artisan food and beverage examples like Mark & Spencer's new snowglobe gin release -- a beverage fusing classic handcrafted gin with gold speckles -- that will hit stores just in time for the upcoming holiday season.
