Hot New Design Trend – Things are Becoming Less Edgy

According to the Home Section of the Washington Post, and writer Lindsey M. Roberts, the latest hot design trend is to eliminate hard edges, straight lines, and sharp corners in home furnishings and accessories.“There is a big shift happening in residential interiors right now”, the article claims," to a look that is comfortable, livable and most important, accessible.”The feel of this trend is softer and warmer; the look is still very fashionable.“People want almost a sanctuary space where they can decompress or chill out, and that goes to more pieces that have more rounded edges,” says Lisa Puchalla of LilyMae Design in the District (DC).Although the trend in rounder forms began in the lighting industry, we can see from the images below that the softer look has expanded to include more furnishings.Stockholm Nesting Tables by Ikea

Two great things about this latest design trend toward a rounded look are, social proof that there is a place for investing in furniture that can withstand changing styles; it does not require a full-on redecoration of a home to implement. Instead, your clients can simply add and/or take away a bit at a time until their interiors feel refreshed and comfy to them.
