As you know, Canonical is teaming up with the community to develop a new default theme for Ubuntu which could start shipping from the next Ubuntu 18.04 LTS release, but it seemed like the guys at Suru Icon theme community beat them to it and has been finalized as the default icon theme for Ubuntu 18.04.

Sam Hewitt, the Suru Icon theme creator wrote 
“I’m very happy that the Ubuntu desktop team reached out to me about making the Suru icons the default set for Ubuntu 18.04 and beyond.”
Personally, I love Suru icon themes, and I am really really looking forward to seeing it in the coming Ubuntu 18.0
