Inside the Trend | Soft Curves

Gentle, sloping silhouettes and delicate edges, an interior design trend surging in popularity. We, for one, are here for every last rounded element.

10 March 2023 -

Curvilinear forms are having a moment  

from larger, more impactful forms, like the smooth arch atop the Guthrie Cabinet to the delicate, pinched edges of the Neutral Striped Pillow Cushion at McGee & Co. While sleek, sharp edges used to dominate furniture design, we’re loving seeing softer elements, and embracing it ourselves in our own McGee & Co. designs, as well as the projects Shea and the design team take on with Studio McGee. This relaxed vibe brings an element of contemporary design into a space, reminiscent of and influenced by the famed Serpentine sofa of the 20th-century designer Vladimir Kagan. Soft edges and curves bring an element of warmth while also infusing a sense of high design, a combination that feels fresh and new though it’s anything but. Here, some of our most curvaceous designs.
