When making plans to remodel or simply when selecting new furnishings for your project consider designing with curves. Just because your room has four walls, doesn’t mean you have to stick to a boxy design. For clients I’ve worked with who are ready to “step outside the box” in a literal sense, and are ready to embrace the fluidity of curves we look at ways we can apply round edges to the design to create a sweeping, softer flow in lines instead of a room of right angles.
With a little help from our Houzz community and a handful of favorite manufacturers, here are some examples of how you can add curves to your interior design.
Subtle changes in the shape of your furnishings can also make an impact in your design. The slope on the back of the Patricia Sofa or Paris Writing Desk can add dimension on a focal wall without taking away from the centerpiece. A sofa with a curved seating design like the one captured by photographer Tara Bussema is a neat way to bring together the conversation in a small gathering place. The wavy legs on the writing desk by Century Furniture or a rounded drawers on the bathroom vanity like the one offered by Lacava can bring a little character to a room in a subtle way. Even a curved light fixture can add the perfect finishing touch to make a statement in a traditional room.
