2022 Trend: Embrace the Curve
Embrace the Curve;
a more feminine approach
to modern furniture
It’s official! …
the curve trend is here to stay.
Originally popular in the 60’s and 70’s as part of the mid-century modern movement, curve appeal has made a big comeback over the last few years, and doesn’t look like going anywhere. Favoured by interior designers and fashion influencers alike, this retro trend has been reimagined for the 21st century—and we’re loving it.
International style guru Athena Calderone notes ‘Rounded sofas and amorphous chairs are currently a hallmark of on-trend spaces, particularly if upholstered in textural fabrics, like bouclé, sheepskin, and velvet.’
Adding curves to interior spaces, be it rounded edged buffets, tables, sofas or chairs, not only visually softens the space, but creates a greater sense of flow. Smooth organic forms and curvaceous lines appeal to our sense of comfort and balance. Unlike straight horizontal or vertical lines, curves are all about movement, happiness and positive emotion and convey a distinct sense of femininity.
If you’re a minimalist at heart, introducing curves through sleek contemporary furniture pieces like our Demarco Buffet, Makayla Bone Inlay Range or Chloe Coffee Table duo will allow you to seamlessly embrace fresh curve appeal into your contemporary spaces. Neutral toned furniture pieces in luxurious fabrics and surfaces add timeless appeal and a confident, no fuss, sense of style.
If classic is more your thing, adding one or two clean line curves to your space will give it an instant facelift and inject a modern freshness to your interior environment. Inviting curves in can be as simple as a clean line mirror, or curved piece of art which elevates the space and adds visual interest through a juxtaposition of styles. A mix of curved and angular accents will add just the right amount of edge and create a sense of balance.
Playing with texture through a mix of surfaces and tones is also essential in curating an interior that is warm, inviting and inspiring. Boucle and velvets are favourite fabrics that offer tactile beauty, luxe, and a sense of nurture. If you’re not quite ready to invest in a curvy velvet sofa, test drive the trend with a curved occasional chair, ottoman or cushion in an array of luscious velvety tones.
A staple in the designer toolkit, contrast – whether it be through a mix of interior styles, colour or form – is essential in creating an interesting interior environment. Gone are the days of matching all your furniture pieces in the bedroom or living room. The ability to add your own personal style and flair through a mix of elements affords your spaces personality, individuality and warmth. So, go for it!
Be bold, live with what you love and most of all, have fun. You’re inner creative will thank you for it.
