If you really want to make a statement in your living room, consider getting a curved sofa. The perfect blend between modern and retro, curved and rounded furniture can give your space a significantly more luxe feel regardless of your go-to interior design style.
According to Andrea Erman, head of product development at CB2, curved sofas are making a comeback due to a revival of sculptural silhouettes in the home space, a trend that originally gained popularity in the '70s.

What should I consider when buying a curved sofa?
According to Laure Leger, an interior designer at CB2, it's all about proportions. Not only should you consider the size of the sofa itself, but the room that you're putting it in.
"Make sure you choose not only a size that stands out without overtaking your room but also a size that accommodates your use," Leger says.
It's also important to note the unique heights and depths of curved sofas. Leger recommends measuring the tallest point of the sofa and the different depths since curved sofas usually have shallow edges and deeper middle sections.
What spaces do curved couches look best in?
"A trained eye can make a curved sofa work in any room, but there are a few spaces that best highlight these standout pieces," Leger says. "Open spaces — like large rooms, conversation pits, and modern, more formal, and design-forward aesthetics — allow for plenty of room around the entire piece."
How do you style a curved couch?
There are many ways you can style a curved sofa, but here are a few tips on incorporating this design trend into your space.
1. Use it as a statement piece.
"In a modern aesthetic, a curved sofa is often a conversation and statement piece in itself, so you should choose pieces that complement the curves rather than detract from them," Leger recommends.
2. Pair it with the right coffee table.
"Select a coffee table that is proportional to the size of the sofa and easily accessible from across the seat of the sofa," Leger explains. "Also, don't be afraid to break curves and go for a coffee table with angles."
3. Find a large enough area rug.
"Choose a rug size that accommodates the entire seating area, including side tables, so that you don't distract from the shapely details in the space," Leger says.
4. Include accent pieces.
"For those who love a little extra, use a larger-sized pillow or a throw in the deeper part of the sofa to accentuate the depth and create texture," Leger recommends. "Or, place a large artwork behind the sofa to emphasize the scale and curvature."
