Curves ahead: 9 shapely furniture pieces to soften up a space

Make no mistake about it: The clean, midcentury-inspired lines that dominated the marketplace before the pandemic are slowly being usurped by more unruly, amorphous silhouettes. Though the trend first peaked in popularity in the 1950s when Vladimir Kagan debuted his iconic Serpentine sofa, it has recently reemerged in the form of fluid outlines that draw from the organic shapes of nature. From rounded dining buffets to sinuous sectionals, Business of Home presents nine curvy furniture items to help you create a more soothing room.
