How to Elegantly Embrace the Curved Furniture Trend

Modern design's current fascination with curves is easy to understand—and easy to incorporate into an existing interior scheme.  

Curved Lounge Chairs

Curved furniture is nothing new—but there's no doubt the curved furniture trend has taken hold, offering irresistible new designs that beg to be included in contemporary interior schemes. The easiest way to incorporate curved furniture into an existing design scheme is to opt for a single statement piece—we're mad for the UMAGE A Conversation Piece Lounge Chair—blessed with a silhouette so effortlessly graceful, you'll wonder why you thought curves were a radical idea.


Curved Sofas

When it comes to attention-getting furniture, it's hard to top a modern curved sofa. A tufted design, like the Ethnicraft N701 Sofa, above, is a show-stopper, ideal for roomy, Scandinavian interiors, where plenty of seating is a must. But smaller spaces can benefit from a curving design as well. Case in point is the clean and compact Blythe Sette from Urbia, which features a gently rounded back that contrasts well with an angular coffee table or occasional chair. The Moooi Aldora Sofa , with its sumptuous form and sculptural backrest, could hardly be more inviting if it tried.  


Curved Coffee Tables

Coffee tables with curving silhouettes offer a visually striking contrast to the straight edges of modern sofas or any adjacent seating. The Showtime Cocktail Table, offers an organically shapped silhouette crafted from sustainable rattan . The mid-century Copeland Essentials Coffee Table illustrates the lasting appeal of an amorphous shape, while the Boomerang Coffee Table by Ethnicraft, with its gently rounded edges and ribbed base, injects subtle glamour into any interior composition.  


Curved Poufs & Ottomans

Few curved furniture pieces come with less risk than a stylish modern pouf or ottoman. Low-profile, versatile, and projecting casual elegance, upholstered ottomans instantly soften even the most formal interior scheme. If a statement ottoman is called for, it's hard to go wrong with the Uno Pouf, covered in Boucle fabric, putting a subtle twist on the popular mushroom shape. The Blu Dot Bumper Small Ottoman doubles as both compact seating and occasional table, while the velvet-covered Ferm Living Pouf Faded Velvet Round brings a decadent touch to a modern space.
