Unlike their round bed counterparts, curved sofas are much less mythical. Design legends like Isamu Noguchi and Pierre Paulin dreamt up versions of the sculptural seating that continue to inspire more today. You’ll see them everywhere—from a Vladimir Kagan floating curved sofa in a pool house designed by Leyden Lewis to a custom semicircle style inspired by Milo Baughman in an Aamir Khandwala-designed home that was featured on the cover of House Beautiful’s September 2020 issue.
You see, designers feature curved sofas in their clients’ homes for good reason: They're artsy and offer a certain softness that rectangular ones lack. Sure, they take up a bit more space than an average couch. But if you have the extra room, or are able to do a little rearranging...a curved sofa can bring coveted playful energy into your living room.
