Top 60 Home Ideas in September

From Skeletal Kitchen Islands to Controlled Portion Spoons

— September 25, 2016 — Art & Design
The most popular September 2016 home ideas sees ordinary objects in the home being leveraged as tools to push personal growth, simplify lives and perform the tasks that they were originally designed for better than ever. Some of the best examples of this include Peak smart lamps, which encourage the formation of healthy habits, LG's 'InstaView' fridge panels and the Logitech 'Pop Home Switch.'

On top of lending functional benefits to homeowners with the help of technology, many modern household items are being designed in aesthetically pleasing ways that remind of the natural world. Two prime examples of this include the 'Delight' lamp, which rises and sets with the sun, and conversely, the 'Another Moon' lamp mimics the real-time waxing and waning of the moon.
