Why Use Curves in Interior Design?


Curves create a sense of softness and make your space feel cocooning and warm. They are soft and feminine, and make us feel safe, and can help to soften an otherwise harsh space. Using curves in your interior design will make your home feel more welcoming and cosy, helping you to create a restful, calming space. 


How to Use Curves in Interiors


There are many ways to use curves in interior design. My favourite ways are below, and you can go as subtle or as bold as you like!. 


Curves on Walls – Paint Effects


Create subtle texture and interest by using paint to create curves in your room. Painting shapes such as lozenges or archways can add detail to an otherwise blank wall and create a feature where there may not be one. 


Curved Furniture


Using curved furniture is a great way to bring in softness and detail without the permanence of paint. As part of the curved furniture trend 2022, consider curved sofas, cocooning egg chairs, round coffee tables – the list is endless!

Soft Furnishings


Using round shapes and curves in soft furnishings is a simple way to get in on the trend without having to spend a fortune. Using round pillows and soft throws can add to the sense of warmth and cosiness. 


Curves in Kitchens


Don’t forget about the kitchen! As mentioned above, searches for curved kitchen island design are well up. A curved kitchen island can add character and interest to your kitchen, and become a real focal point for your kitchen space. If you have a dining kitchen, you could consider a round table and chairs, or use curved lighting.
