We’ve curated nine sofas from different design decades that explore the timeless appeal of curves.
Curves are ever-present in homes we explore on est from around the globe, expressing a sense of comfort, softness and playfulness. In this Nine to Know, we’re highlighting a piece of furniture that has continued to lead the sculptural furniture movement: curved sofas.
The Baxter LEON sofa is designed by multi-disciplinary Italian design studio Draga & Aurel. One of a collection of sculptural collaborations between Baxter and Draga & Aurel, the LEON sofa is defined by chubby forms and textured leather.
Designed in 1976 by notable architect Mario Marenco, the understated Arflex Marechiaro sofa is a testament to the longevity of curves.
What sets the Ross Gardam Place lounge apart from other curved sofas is its simple connecting system. Depending on the space it inhabits, the sofa can easily connect and disconnect to other modules to form a variety of configurations.
The Christophe Delcourt OZE sofa is a two-in-one: a sofa and a side table. Its undulating shape is what creates the illusion of one continuous form.
The iconic Verpan Cloverleaf sofa is designed to transform a space completely. The multi-part system is entirely customisable, allowing it to be formatted into various curvy compositions.
The De Sede DS-600 sofa is akin to a piece of art. Popular as both a new and vintage piece, the sofa reflects the De Sede legacy of working with leather to create Swiss furniture since 1965.
Designed by architect Zaha Hadid, the B&B Italia Moon System sofa takes curves to a whole new level. The transition between backrest, seat and armrest is masked by its dynamic profile, making it appear as though it has been sculpted from one singular block of material.
