Watch out straight lines… There’s a new trend on the block, and she’s curvy in all the right places.
These last few years it’s been all about straight lines & symmetry, modular furniture, and minimal (almost futuristic) interiors… That is, until now. Thanks to design gurus such as Kelly Wearstler and Leanne Ford, we’ve found ourselves swooning over this new, softer approach to modern. Dramatic details, curved upholstery and sculptural furnishings are brought together to make a bold statement, and bonus: Even double as art in the home.
Not sure you’re quite ready to go all in on this new trend? We totally get it. Which is why we’ve done the legwork for you and rounded up some showstopping finds that speak to the trend without taking it too far… So you can count on these pieces to stick around your space for a while, even long after the ‘curvalicious’ trend simmers down.

Sleek meets sophisticated in this fresh take on minimalist-modern. High contrasting black and white furnishings are anything but boring thanks to their dramatic curves, elegant arches, textured bouclé upholstery, and sculptural details. This roundup exudes old Hollywood vibes, and we are here for it.

Japandi? You’ve probably heard of it but still have no clue what it is. A hybrid of Japanese and Scandinavian aesthetics, this new design trend has become quite popular over the past year. The look is minimal and functional, with lots of warm neutrals and organic materials to create a zen filled interior dream.

Effortlessly cool, laid-back modern means keeping it clean with a strictly neutral palette, (specifically lots of black, white + grey) and relying on tons of texture to really warm the space up. If your space feels too modern, try incorporating more wood, live greenery and other textural details. This will help it to feel more warm and welcoming.
Don’t get us wrong, we are still major suckers for sharp, angular furniture and strikingly modern interiors, but we are reallly diggin’ this new take on it. Art deco meets the groovy ’70s with just a dash of good ‘ol grandma’s house… We love the nostalgic charm of these ‘new meets old’ pieces. And afterall, you know what they say: It all comes back at some point!
