In just about every 2019 home trend article we read, curved furnishings are making a comeback. But we don’t think you have to be “trendy” to want to soften a room or create flowing energy with a piece or two of sinuously-shaped furniture. A curved sofa or round coffee table can often function to draw people into the living area rather than cut them off with many square and pointed edges. By contrast, a chair or couch could also create a more romantic and intimate space with its enveloping rounded aesthetic.
