The "curvy" design

Let’s set the edges aside and give space to rounded furniture.

One of the most interesting trends of the moment is certainly the return of the Decò style, today called Contemporary Art Decò, a mix of glamour and vintage in which the curved shapes become the protagonists of every environment.

Rounded and sinuous shapes are synonymous with style and timeless elegance, such as Louis Ghost Chair by Kartell, designed by Philipp Starck in the early 2000s, or the Ant Chair by Fritz Hansen, designed by Arne Jacobsen in the 1950s.

The contemporary furnishings are clearly a reinterpretation of Decò style, in which each shape is enriched by the presence of iridescent metals (gold, copper and brass), elegant fabrics (velvet, silk and nubuck) and pastel colors.

Among the predominant geometries we find circles, ovals, arches and compound shapes.

The round shape is used above all in the design of tables and coffee tables, lamps, mirror and and bathroom accessories.



The oval shape, but with the longer straight sides, is used instead for mirrors, lamps and furniture tops or fronts.


Passages, doors and partitions then take up arch shapes, a versatile solution to separate two rooms while maintaining continuity between them.

Lastly the composite shapes, a typical feature of upholstered sofas, where individual elements come together to create multiple compositions.
