Interior curves

Curves in design are not a new thing by any stretch of the imagination. The curve has always been around in some form or fashion. What we are seeing at the moment is a major push and stretch of this design element, into areas that may be a little unexpected. I wonder if the curve on the ceiling moulding is the inspiration for Bobby Berk to design the island, the cabinetry fronts, and even the lighting with the curve in mind. This is certainly a strong nod to all the interior curves that we are seeing in all our interiors. The interior curve shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon so why not jump on board. When you have a tricky corner that just wont take to a piece of much loved furniture, why not curve it up and see where it takes you.

The use of steel and curves on interior doors may be the design that stays on trend the longest. This elegant use of a material that inherently is quite the worker bee, softens dramatically when curves are applied. The curve frames the hallway and adds as a visual cue to draw the eye through the space. Great designers asks the question that this image has answered. How to make a feature of a architectural window that sits quietly at the back of the space and this door by Adoore Wrought Iron Designs does it in spades.

Maybe adding a bath into this ditty about curves seems redundant, as it’s hard for a bath to not have curves of some kind, but I couldn’t resist. This concrete delight from Concrete Nation comes in several colourways and would be the perfect starting point in any bathroom when putting a scheme together.

A true craftsman is something to behold. Timber furniture when done to this detail is appreciated for not only the time it takes but the skill involved. Designed in collaboration with Patryk Koca and handcrafted by The Wood Room this elegant version of the Galley table features a simplistic round top and intricate base details. Aptly titled the Galley Helm, this certainly celebrates the curve.

Lastly but certainly not leastly, the curved shower screen is one of those design ideas that we definitely didn’t know we needed until we saw it done and then it was ‘where can I get that’. It has changed the bathroom game for ever. Any element that we can use to soften a bathroom we will. When you put so many hard materials into a small space, a gentle curve or two is certainly helpful. This fluted glass, curved shower screen by local business Future Glass is a most welcome addition to the bathroom design world.
