TRENDING: Curvilinear silhouettes — what it is and how to get the look
While geometric designs will always have a place in our hearts, we are saying goodbye to angular silhouettes, and welcoming the curves. Design fairs around the world have been exhibiting homeware in rounded and fluid forms – we loved the Lasvit Eve lamp by Zaha Hadid – and there are hints of Streamline Moderne architecture in homes, too. This one was designed by Waff!
Remember the archways of old HDB flats? Resale homeowners, don’t hack it away just yet. It’s time to bring it back. "Organic-shaped furniture pieces break up the linearity of a room, and add softness and depth. The curve of my oval-shaped doorway also allows for a natural flowing walkway between rooms," says Ginny Macdonald, interior designer.
Ginny Macdonald is one interior designer who has been incorporating curvilinear silhouettes into her design.
