Furniture trends come and go...and often come back again, but one thing that never goes out of style is circular design.
There is something timeless and beautiful about circles. Perhaps it’s their simplicity, their versatility, their flowing contours — we may never know. What we do know is that the use of circles in your furniture and decor is something that will work and look good in the long-term.
Here are some fun and functional ways to bring circular design into your home.
Circular coffee tables
Round coffee tables are warm, inviting, and flexible, as they can be accessed on all sides and used for a variety of functions. Their smooth curve is visually appealing and the lack of hard corners is also nice to have — just ask yourself how many times you’ve bumped your knee on the hard corner of your existing coffee table? Ouch!
Circular coffee tables are available in a wide range of materials, including combinations of wood, glass, metal, and fabric. Depending on your prefered brand, you may also be able to customize your fabric or wood finish.
At Smitty’s, we recommend having a look at Hooker Furniture (featured above), Artage, and Amisco.
Mirrors are the perfect way to bring some circular design into your home. Aside from helping to brighten your space by bringing in light from outside, mirrors are useful for checking your appearance before heading out for the day.
Key places to consider placing a mirror in your home include:
- Your entryway
- Your bathroom
- Your bedroom
- Your living room
- Your guest room
At Smitty’s, we have a lovely range of mirrors by Surya to check out.
Circular dining tables
Every home needs a dining table and, if you’re considering updating your dining suite, we recommend a circular dining table. Round tables, small or large, offer a comfortable seating arrangement where everyone can easily see each other, pass food items, do homework, and play games.
Round dining tables, like the Hooker Furniture table featured above, are available in a range of materials and sizes — from pub size to family size, you can achieve the circular look with ease.
There are so many beautiful circular furniture and decorative pieces to choose from that it can be hard to know which elements to bring into your home. Visit the interior decorating experts at Smitty’s and we’ll help you make it work.
