Top 60 Furniture Trends in October

From Artisan Rugs to WFH Integration

— October 24, 2020 — Art & Design
Consumers are spending more time at home than ever, and this list of October 2020 furniture trends is filled with ideas and inspirations that can help individuals transform their houses into homes.

As COVID-19 continues to spread globally, consumers are looking to hunker down for a socially distant winter. With that in mind, people want their spaces to be not only comfortable, but functional, as many plan to work from home for the foreseeable future. One piece in this list that's helping consumers make the transition to an at-home office is a folding desk called the Marcel. This collapsable desk empowers the consumer to work wherever they please in the home, without the device taking up space after the work day is over.
