5 ways to create curve appeal in your home
Curve appeal interiors first caught the eye of the Good Homes team in the latter part of 2021 when Pinterest reported a huge boost in popularity in searches for curved bar designs and curved walls.
The idea of softer, more welcoming furniture and spaces within our homes is part of the post-pandemic move towards bolder, brighter and more fun decor schemes like cluttercore, as well as more practical multifunctional living.

1. Curved couches in the living room
A living room is the space most commonly used for entertaining and a great way to utilise the curve interiors trend. Curved couches were one of the most popular interiors search terms in late 2021/early 2022, while the circular coffee table and light fitting also provide an openness to the space. This Arlo bouclé compact two-seater sofa in ivory (£499), Gigi six-light pendant in gold (£125) and Enzo cage coffee table (£249) are all from Dunelm.
2. Soft edges in a dining room
Another great space for entertaining is your dining room, and this is perfect for utilising curve appeal. The soft edges of this Siena medium dining table from Ercol (£1,260) make for a welcoming dining space where conversation can flow freely. The rounded farmhouse-style Heritage dining chairs (£380 each also from Ercol) further compliment this scheme. The Heritage armchairs (£490 each) and Heritage loveseat (£870) are also from Ercol.
3. A curve appeal bedroom
Curves lend themselves well to a pared-back scheme where calm is key, so where better to incorporate a workspace than in a bedroom. Transform a nook or alcove with understated, chunky shelving, integrated power points for charging devices and lighting, and finish by painting in a soothing, uniform shade. This Cambourne double bed in natural with curved headboard is £699 from Feather & Black.
4. Taking the edge off a bathroom
Bringing curves into your bathroom is easier than you might think! Slipper freestanding baths like the Richmond slipper bath from Bathroom Mountain (£469) pictured below are on trend right now, as are curved basins. Another way to bring the curve appeal look into your space is through the decor, with feature wallpapers reinforcing the open elements.
