When you picture any manner of home decor, from bookshelves to tables to chairs, angled, rectangular silhouettes are probably what spring to mind first. But the tide is slowly starting to turn — we’re seeing an influx of softer edges making their way into the world of design. More and more, we’re finding ourselves drawn to items like circular, swiveling chairs, round cushions and sloped mirrors. The look is glamorous, feminine and a little unexpected, and it’s definitely finding its way to our inspiration boards. No doubt about it — we’re embracing the curves!
