What’s the quickest way to get from point A to chic? A curve. Furniture and accessories with interesting bends, arcs, and sinuous silhouettes have become part of one of the top trends of 2019 already—and we can’t wait to add a few curvaceous pieces to our own spaces. Perhaps it’s a reaction to the serious straight lines of the minimalist trend (or even the ubiquitous mid-century silhouettes) or a nod to the ’80s aesthetic that’s still going strong. But, no matter the reason, right now there’s no better way to make a statement than with a few well-placed curves. Want to try out the trend? Here are our favorite items with a curvy silhouette currently available at Sotheby’s Home:
If you think that Murano glass has to be colorful to turn heads, think again. The curved arms of this chandelier embolden the clear glass, which shines and shimmers in the light to create an eye-catching effect.
A curved back and arms create a chair that cuts a stunning silhouette in the living room (and anywhere else in your space). Channeling Art Deco glamour, this chair is as comfortable as it is stylish.
This 19th-century decanter makes a gorgeous addition to your tabletop, bookcase, or even the bar. Created in the Gustavian style, the design marries the perfectly balanced forms that Scandinavian style is known for, with subdued details for a unique look.
Mirrors never fail to add interest to a room, especially when you select a design that’s a little more different than standard squares, circles, or rectangles. These waisted-style mirrors definitely fit the bill, right down to the frames (which feature green dyed parchment and bone tile detail).
This modern design offers a new take on a classic element to any living room: the coffee table. Instead of the expected legs, the wood top is suspended by two curvaceous white metal forms.
The Louis XV style is synonymous with fine details and more “romantic” silhouettes — and you’ll find both of these hallmarks in this beautifully carved bench that was inspired by the era. From its cabriole legs to the carved floral decorations, you’ll notice something new to enjoy about the piece in every glance.
