Curves have a unique way of softening a room and although curved furniture is nothing but new, it is growing increasingly popular due to its manner of giving the eye a natural place to rest. Arguably, furniture that feels good is considerably important and curved interiors are proven to give off a relaxing, calming, and welcoming feel due to a softness and rounded organic appearance.

This trend for natural curves links back to biophilic design, where organic curved edges are reflected from the natural world. Borrowing elements from the outdoors gives this trend a natural way to incorporate organic texture in furniture made from materials such as wood, stone, and natural fibres. As can be seen in the image, the curve furniture allowed for the curved back chair to accompany the wooden table and rounded pouffe cushion, in a perfect combination for a calming environment stimulated by the natural world.  

Curved sofas are just one of the many examples of using soft curves to instil a relaxing environment that therefore establishes a calming home that benefits mental and physical health. Our brains are drawn to the circular forms and curved lines that are associated with safety and calm and mirror the outside world. The increasing push for nature to become a part of our daily lives allows for the organic look of curved lines and soft edges to invite the impact of the creation of the natural, welcoming, familiar flow that is found in the environment despite the more rigid feel that can sometimes be found in other geometric spaces.
