From soft oversized curves that are perfect for curling up in, to sumptuous silhouettes that will bring a warm and inviting feel to your space, one of the biggest trends emerging in the world of interiors this season is ‘organic shapes’. It’s filtering through into all aspects of design from accent armchairs to contemporary garden furniture. To shed some light on this new trend, we sat down with Danetti designers, Francesca and Damien to discover more about how you can bring some softness and signature style to your home.
What is an ‘organic shape’ in interior design?
Think flowing lines and sweeping curves – organic shapes take inspiration from nature, so aren’t restrained by structure, sleek lines, or sharp angles. Think about those more natural formulations and silhouettes that you would find in landscapes and greenery.
Francesca says: “Styles are moving away from the all-white linear shaping of 90s minimalism and are taking on this softer shape, and this is coming into all areas of the home from furniture to lighting. It’s happening everywhere, so it’s going to be a trend that sticks around - we’ll continue to see it for the next five to ten years, and that’s due to the feelings that are evoked from those kinds of shapes such as ‘comfort’ and ‘calm’ due to the soft lines.”
Why are ‘organic shapes’ on-trend this season?
As rounded corners and soft smooth forms are reminiscent of nature, they evoke a feeling of calm and relaxation in a room and contribute to a feeling of wellbeing which is especially important this season. Damien explains: “With everything that has happened over the last few years due to the pandemic, people want their homes to be a calming place. Designers are trying to translate that into the shapes used in interiors so they can influence the spaces. We’re seeing more elegant curves, soft undulations and generally more rounded shapes. These characteristics will all strongly feature in our designs this season because curves have a calming effect on our psyche and soften the environment to create a sanctuary – a space where you can curl up and de-stress.”
Top 5: Organic Shaped Furniture Inspiration
Who said you had to compromise style for comfort? No detail has been forgotten with the Lucinda Sofa and its inviting curved shape. Available as a two- or three-seater sofa, you can create the perfect centrepiece for your living room by choosing from six different velvet colours including a rich green or cool champagne.
Create a focal point in your living room with the Aurora in a chic marble and warm oak finish. The soft shape of this modern coffee table paired with the rich oak and natural veining would bring a warmth to your space. The Aurora would also co-ordinate with the Lucinda Sofa’s green velvet to create an earthy living aesthetic.
Glass is a great material choice for a coffee table or side table as it effortlessly co-ordinates with everything and reflects light. This helps to create a more open and airy feeling within a room, plus lighting also contributes to the organic feeling of a space. For easy living room styling, look no further than our Ripple range with its sweeping silhouette - which is available in three metallic finishes as a console table, desk, and coffee table.
With its dramatic headboard detailing in a soft and sumptuous fabric, the Noelle Bed nods to that Art Deco vibe in a soothing way thanks to its warm and cosy finish and colour. Our fabric beds are both stylish and practical, with extra deep and easy-access hidden storage throughout the range.
The ultimate piece of modern garden furniture and the perfect spot for your sunny afternoon retreat away from busy life.
