There’s an unmistakable elegance to a curved sofa, whether it’s a gently rolled Chesterfield or a fully rounded mid-century modern couch. Similarly, a curvilinear form can add a bit of artistic refinement to other furnishings as well, from drum-shaped coffee tables to gracefully molded light fixtures. Read on to learn how to add a little well-rounded beauty to your living room and discover some of our favorite curved furnishings.
Your Statement Piece: The Curved Sofa or Curved Couch
Curved sofas are sometimes called crescent sofas or conversation sofas (in other words, try searching those terms as well when shopping online to get more results). These gorgeous pieces statement pieces have steadily increased in popularity over the past couple of years, and 2022 will be no exception.
If you’re planning to add a curved sofa to your living room, here are a few styling tips to keep in mind:
- Curved sofas typically work best when they’re floated in the middle of the room. This allows the beautiful curves to be exposed. Don’t try to push a piece like this against a wall.
- Curved sofas may seem smaller than a standard couch, but in reality, many tend to be a bit bigger due to the curves. To be certain the couch will fit your space, take note of the overall dimensions listed in the product description. I recommend physically marking it out on your living room floor with masking tape.
- A coffee table with harsh lines may not jive with your curved couch. If that’s the case, then try a round or curvy one instead.
- Place a single sofa across from the television or fireplace. To balance the look, flank it on either side with an accent chair or place a couple of accent chairs directly across from the sofa.
- If you have an large living room, then you may want to use two curved sofas. Float them in the center of the room, facing one another.

Complementary Curved Furnishings
One of the best ways to complement a curved sofa: repeat the curves! Curved furnishings add a touch of gentle softness. They offset harsh edges and rigid lines, creating a more harmonious vibe in your space. Pieces with more intricate curves — an arching floor lamp or a rounded mirror — even function as usable artwork.
