Curved Furniture: The Only Guide You’ll Ever Need

 

It’s official, curves are here to stay. Curved furniture has become an increasingly popular search term across all generations and there are plenty of reasons why. With their gentle, smooth shapes, a rounded sofa, curved love seat or circular table can create a real focal point in your interior and provide a stylish contrast to the rest of your aesthetic.

Here’s the only guide you’ll ever need to round your home with curved furniture.

The History of Curved Furniture

Let’s start with where it all began. The curved trend is not a new concept, it is in fact centuries old, with both the Egyptians and Greeks incorporating curves into their furniture in various ways. Fast forward several thousand years to the 20th century and round furniture became a key component in mid-century modern interiors, with curved sofas that had a space-age feel to them.

The rounded furniture trend continued throughout the 70s and 80s, where the curved sofa became synonymous with ‘80s furniture. Fast forward a few decades and once again, curved furniture is back en vogue and we couldn’t be happier about it!

Types of Curved Furniture

If you’d like to invest in a piece of curved furniture, the good news is that there are a lot of different types to consider. Even a curved sofa itself can mean numerous things. From scrolled arms to a curved back, different sofas have different degrees of roundness, giving you the flexibility to find a curved sofa that is suitable for your space.

Curved Sofa

If you have an apartment or a maisonette and like the idea of a small curved sofa, the Woodford 2 seater sofa has a beautifully curved back and curved arms, while the Harrow is a slightly more subtle example of a rounded sofa. If you have a larger space to fill, a curved corner sofa could be just what you’re looking for, with the Dulwich providing a dramatic sweeping curve as it corners.

Curved Chairs

Why not go for a smaller piece of curved furniture and pair it with a curved desk or rounded table? An accent chair like the Alton, which has a beautifully rounded back, or the Clevedon, which has both a rounded back and curved shape, both offer the perfect opportunity to pair with a rounded table, allowing you to create a stylish contrast to the rest of your space.

If you want something with room for two people, a curved loveseat could be the answer, with the Farnworth’s subtle curves inviting you to settle back and relax in style.

Curved Headboards

Curves don’t just belong in the living room, they work beautifully in a bedroom too, providing a real softness to your interior. Adding a curved headboard to your bed, which tends to be the focal point in your room, can set the tone for the rest of your décor. From the gentle curves of the scrolled Esher headboard to the more traditional curves of the Avebury headboard, once you’ve chosen a style, browse our range of fabrics to find the perfect look for your bedroom.

Additional Curved Furniture Ideas:

There are many ways you can incorporate soft edges into your interior including circular mirrors (which are making a real comeback now) or round picture frames and circular rugs. If a curved sofa feels too much, start with something smaller and see how it fits within the rest of your interior and build gradually towards the larger pieces of curved furniture.
