With their voluptuous form curved sofas are an up and coming trend. I have encountered several different styles at the Design Centre Chelsea Harbour but have yet to see any on the High Street.

Photographed in the Julian Chichester showroom at DCCH the Parrot Sofa with its brass wrapped feet is a stunning example of this style.

Flicking through the pages of glossy magazines, such as House & Garden, curved sofas such as these are definitely catching on.

Generally upholstered in a luxurious velvet they are certainly statement pieces. Perfect for curling up on to watch a movie or cuddle up with a close companion.

I love the fact that they do not follow the lines of a conventional room and therefore have to take centre stage. Ideal for a home cinema, music room or a substantial anteroom.

One of my favourites is the Eternal Dreamer by Ochre. The height and depth of the seats can be ordered to bespoke dimensions to ensure a perfect fit.

A more conservative style might take the form of a curved wooden frame with a neatly upholstered seat like the D.R.D.P. for the Ceccotti Collezioni.

This elegant two seater in solid American walnut comes with an upholstered plywood seat and a silver finished sandblasted glass top tray. Simply stunning.

So if you want to stay ahead of the curve maybe explore the idea of a curvaceous silhouette.
