These 8 Homes Prove Curves Are 2022's Biggest Interior Design Trend

Over the last few years curves have been the standout form in interior design. And we're happy to say that this design trend won't be going anywhere in 2022. Everything from chairs and coffee tables, to walls and mirrors will be distinctively voluptuous. This design aesthetic helps to create flow in a home and ties in with our increased desire for cosy, safe, and soft sanctuaries.   

There's good reason why we're attracted to this shape in our homes. According to a 2007 study that examined the emotional effect of curvilinear forms in interior design, rounded shapes in internal spaces are perceived to be less stressful than angular shapes. Another study conducted in 2012  found that interior settings and furniture with rounded contours promote higher levels of relaxation compared to angular contours. 

To help inspire you, we've rounded up a selection of stunning homes from our The Makers series that are wholeheartedly embracing the curved trend in all its glory. 

These 8 Homes Prove Curves Are 2022's Biggest Interior Design Trend

1. 

The minimally-styled Apartmento in Byron Bay embraces earthy muted tones, natural wood, and curvaceous furniture. Here, a plump boucle armchair makes for the cosiest reading spot, and the round white table the perfect place to dine in style. 

2. 

Web Designer Puno Puno's colourful warehouse-style apartment is filled with  70s-inspired furniture that boasts plenty of curves. The overall aesthetic is ultra-stylish and can be described as "Danish tropical" with it's array of indoor plants pastel hues, and modern aesthetic.

3.  

"As our structural space is created with sharp angular lines I was looking to find a contrast in soft lighting and curved furniture," says Olive Cooke of her minimal, '70s-style home. In the neutral living room, curves appear in the arched dining chairs and a chubby cream sofa.

4.   

This delightful Spanish-inspired bathroom that sits within luxurious homestead retreat The Range features a calming aesthetic with its curved freestanding bath and shower walls. A warm neutral palette of terracotta and beige help create a welcoming vibe that makes you want to linger and unwind.

5.  

The dialled down palette in Nam Vo's home combined with curvaceous furniture and decor creates a look that's utterly soothing. This design scheme proves that you don't need colour to make a room look interesting but rather shapely furniture and varying textures. 

6.  

"Overall I opted for a soft colour palette, soft curves and calm vibes throughout,” says Jenna Densten of her dreamy family home. The delicately curved headboard in the main bedroom – right above their Bed Threads sheets set in contrasting shades of Peach and Lilac – speaks straight to this design aesthetic.

7.

The shapely coffee table is the star of ceramicist Jess Choi's living room. This chic furniture item almost mimics the fluidity of her contemporary ceramics which sit atop it.

8.   

Filled with colourful and quirky pieces, interior designer Tali Roth's home feels a little retro and wonderfully unique. From the mushroom lamp to the woven armchair the living room is peppered with curvy pieces that prove you really can't have too much of a good thing.
