Furniture with curves has always been appealing. A lot of designs that feature this characteristic have become classics. Remember the Panton Chair? Its design revolutionized the furniture industry. But what about curved sofas and sectionals? They have a lot of flair too. In fact, they’re making a comeback in a lot of contemporary interior designs. While they are definitely full of potential, curved sofas can also be quite pretentious.
Before anything else, you should find a suitable spot for a curved sofa or sectional in your home.In theory, you have lots of options to choose from. If your home has a curved wall, you already have the area set up perfectly for such a sofa, couch or sectional. Of course, these cases are quite rare so chances are you’ll have to rely on something else to make your curved sofa look at home.
You can always position a curved sofa or sectional in a corner in which case you’ll be left with an empty little space behind it. You can fill that with a floor lamp, a tall plant or some other suitable accent piece or decoration. Another option is to include the sofa or sectional in a circular grouping. Maybe you could pair it with a couple of armchairs or poufs to complete the circle or you could have it face a fireplace. Also, if possible, it would be nice to have the sofa or sectional placed across from a focal point or a window with a nice view.
Although there are compact models which you can opt for, curved sofas and sectionals usually occupy a lot of space, not only because of their shape and size but also because they need plenty of free space around them so everyone can be comfortable while sitting down or walking around the room. That being said, you need to carefully consider the design and proportions of the sofa before bringing it home.
As you can see, curved sofas can be quite tricky to work with but don’t let that discourage you. In a proper environment, each of the designs we showed you here can look amazing. Look for ways to make that happen. Let the curves of the sofa soften the harsh and angular lines of the surrounding decor and let it become a statement piece. You can reiterate its curves in a variety of forms in order to create a harmonious interior design. For instance, pair the sofa with a round top coffee table or with a circular area rug.
