Top 30 Modern Trends in October

From Modern Flat-Pack Tables to Artful Rug Designs

— October 24, 2020 — Art & Design
These October 2020 modern trends range from contemporary flat-pack tables to artful limited edition rugs.

Standouts include Dutch artist and sculptor Parra's latest design project with Case Studyo -- a limited-edition rug titled 'IRONICA,' that is adorned with "a female figure with a subtly abnormal form." The artful rug is made from 100% wool materials and is part of a limited selection that features only 100 pieces.

The 'Plint' flat-pack table by Dutch designer Cecilie Manz is another notable example and was made for furniture retailer Takt. The flat-pack table is not only ideal for small spaces and easy storage but is also easy to assemble without the need for glue, bolts or screws, thanks to a unique leather loop system.
