“Look for curved lines to be implemented into architecture. A freedom from the feel of limitations within a rigorously structured space." — Veranda
Curvy furniture is back and better than ever with an upgrade for the modern age. Welcoming forms like sculptural seating, rounded tables, and chunky decor that feels both trendy and timeless work together to create an overall relaxed and comfortable feel within your space. Think radiused corners or curved backs on sofas, with flared arms on lounge chairs, and waterfall edges on desks and console tables, complemented by scalloped shapes found on rugs and ottomans. Also known as Neotenic design, this style is all about pieces that feature soft, comforting lines, ushering in a welcoming change to typical structure and geometric form. An interior designer favorite, the Roly Poly Armchair by Driade offers distinct neotenic style through its rounded endges and chic curves, suitable for use both indoors and out.

Neoclassical Now: Layering Old & New
“Refined classic lines of the interior are always in trend. Neoclassicism, in comparison with classical design, is more laconic, restrained and harmoniously combined with innovative approaches to creating functional housing. “ — New Decor Trends
A trend continuing to make a resurgence with its traditional undertones and statement-making possibilities, Neoclassical interior design is imagined for practicality, well-being, and supreme beauty. A composition of luxe elements and striking nostaligiac statements, this look is achieved with the layering modern classics with mid-century modern statements, flea market finds, vintage designs, and contemporary comforts to create truly unique spaces that reflect personal treasures and new heirlooms in a refined style. Classic busts, toile and chinoiserie prints, and graceful, carved detailings create a space that is brimming with elegance and sophistication. Well-loved for its timeless elegance, this style is luxurious without being ostentatious, offering a relaxed atmosphere that is at once, both refined and charming. The Peacock Armchair from Cappellini makes a stunning Neoclassical statement with its eye-catching folds and rich blue upholstery.
