Top 100 Home Concepts in September

From Mood-Inspired Apartments to Pop-Up Paper Lamps

— September 30, 2015 — Art & Design
Many of the top September 2015 home products and designs fuse form and function in order to get closer to get homeowners one step closer to living in dream homes. This includes the invention of ingenious products like laundry machines that operate with less water, mirrors that are able to provide heat to rooms and bed sheets that are able to regulate the body's temperature to keep sleepers comfortable through the night.

By fusing the functions of common home appliances and decor pieces, this adds value to each product as a multi-purpose tool and space-saving device.

Recycling and reuse are also important components of many of these home ideas. Some of the most inventive designs include pop-up lamps made from cardboard and entire sideboards assembled from a large collection of found objects.
