Curved Furniture And Artistic Concepts
Curved furniture hasn’t just made an appearance in 2022. In fact, curved furniture has been around for quite some time. In the 1970s, curved furniture was highly fashionable with almost every home displaying at least one design.
In contrast to the Danish interior design of the 50s and 60s, which focused on the liners, the 70s welcomed softer lines.
Bauhaus was one of the biggest influencers when it came to designing sculptural furniture. A flick through an old Bauhaus magazine will give you an idea of just how much fun designers had when it came to balancing style and function.
The Tubular Chair
Statement pieces in furniture design really don’t get much more iconic than the tubular chair. This trend, which has made a resurgence, takes inspiration from the flowing shapes often found in nature.
Intended to serve as a comfortable chair to sit on while being pleasant to the eye, tubular furniture emphasises chunkiness combined with rounded-off corners.
These styles of chairs and other pieces of sculptural furniture are the perfect addition to any contemporary interior.
Curvacious Coffee Tables
As focal points, coffee tables are both important practical additions to a room and can have a major impact on interior design.
One of the key design trends we’re seeing with sculptural furniture is a focus on bringing curves to coffee tables to create a sense of organic movement. Utilising curvy shapes and elegant materials, coffee tables can stand as a sculpture in their own right.
Many interior designers are choosing mid-century coffee tables that have a curved shape to apply this trend and bring it into a living space.
There’s something incredibly satisfying about modular furniture; the ability to assemble and dissemble as you wish to make this type of furniture art in itself. With this said, we are seeing a soaring trend toward modular sofas.
As one of the best examples of sculptural furniture, the modular sofa comes in a range of elegant rounded shapes and is also comfortable to sit in – mainly because you can adjust it to your own preferences.
