For a while now, interiors have featured sharp edges and sleek lines, something made more popular by the mid-century trend. This theme hasn’t completely disappeared from our radar, but now the urge for softening our living spaces is melding beautifully with the minimalist, sometimes stark, midcentury aesthetic. This season marks the return of softer, more rounded shapes: curvy sofas and armchairs and round tables. Rich velvets and lush burnished metals deliver a sense of curvaceous cosiness, while containment is still key to maintaining the right balance.
