Budgie is a modern desktop environment built by the Solus team. It is lightweight, yet modern and nice looking, that’s why it’s my favourite.
Many – including myself – prefer to use keyboard shortcuts for accessing things faster and Budgie does well on this area, too. For those this (enhanced) table from Solus’s help section will be useful.
