Room Design: Balancing Straight Lines and Curves
For me, too many horizontal and vertical lines within a room design make me feel rigid and uncomfortable. Many of you have a similar reaction but perhaps haven’t been able to nail down the cause. While I love the very sleek contemporary furnishings, I can’t live with the hard-edged feel of the minimalist, straight-lined interior day in and day out. So if you want to enjoy some of those crisp mid-century or modern pieces, you need only introduce them to elements that exhibit curvilinear shapes. Whether you add a chair with a curved leg, a lamp with circular shapes or even a throw pillow with a soft design, you are able to break up the stiff formality and usher in a more inviting living experience.
