No matter how big or small your space, curved back sofas come in many shapes, sizes and fabrics — all of which are sure to strike a conversation among guests. “Curved sofas look very elegant (but still very fun!), which I think appeals to a wide audience,” says Brittany Farinas, CEO and creative director at design-firm House of One. From small curved loveseats to large curved sectionals, we’ve rounded up the best curved sofas to instantly elevate your living room design.

What’s worth considering when shopping for a curved sofa?
✔️Style: Curved sofas come in many forms, some feel ultra-modern while others feel more traditional, minimalist or even boho. Pay attention to silhouettes, whether it has legs or no legs and the fabric options to find a style that pairs with your home design.
✔️Size: Ranging from loveseats to modular sectionals, curved couches come in a variety of shapes and sizes. While curved sofas may seem to take up less space than a traditional sofa, it may not be the case — so measure carefully.
✔️Living room layout: Curved sofas typically look best when floating in the living room, rather than pressed against the wall — so keep in mind the shape of your space. If you’ve got a room with a unique layout, a curved sofa may help to fill the space perfectly.
