DID WE OUTGROW LINEAR SOFAS?

2020 was nothing but linear or predictable, so it's only understandable that we search for comfort in the realm of our homes. Because we can't really leave them.

One trend I see nonstop is the curved sofa. It goes well with bell pants, loosen fabrics and all that is 70's. It makes sense that we crave for the comfort of the 70's, because from what we see in the movies it was kind of groovy and laid back, which is absolutely the opposite of our current state. True, they had the distinct help of certain chemicals, but hey, we also have our 2021 magical chemical - Covid-19 vaccine - that will hopefully loosen up things.

Since it's going to take some time, we can start small by switching to a more comforting form of sofas: curved, plush and fluid. Just imagine how fun it will be to seat all your friends and family in a cozy, inviting living room like those shown below.

Surprise! Though not a sofa, this winter garden featuring breezy ornamental grass fits right in, don't you think?

I could go on and on with the photos, but let's get practical.
