Rounded edges and circular shapes add softness to the straight, structural lines of the built environment. But designers are taking it a step further, creating playfully exaggerated curvy furniture and objects.

Each component of the Squiggle collection by Christopher Miano of CAM Design Co. highlights the grain pattern and characteristics of the solid slabs of lumber from which it was made.

Talbot & Yoon’s Loop Light is a modular lighting fixture that utilizes bent brass tubes in unique shapes to create an endless variety of looped and squiggly configurations.

Part of Caleb Ferris’ Al Dente collection, the Lasagna side table translates the pasta’s ruffled edges into wood.

The Nami dining table from Hachi Collections has a solid maple top that is corrugated on its underside.

Cicil’s Curvy Rugs are surprisingly sensual. Natural and biodegradable, they’re fashioned from 100% wool yarn that is braided around a jute core and then sewn together with cotton thread.

Astraeus Clarke’s Lenox chandelier features a scalloped design inspired by walks through the Greenwich Village neighborhood in New York City. The fixture’s metal tube bends around the globe lights to create flow and synchrony between the parts.

The Curvature Towel Hanger from Ferm Living is part of a series of organically shaped hooks and hangers that have been hand-formed in solid brass to juxtapose the whimsical nature of the curves with the solidity of the material.

Part of Frank Gehry’s 1972 furniture series Easy Edges, the Wiggle Stool introduced a new aesthetic dimension to an everyday material: cardboard.

The undulating legs of the Wave chair from Sun at Six add visual interest to a workhouse dining chair.

To create the Relief collection, TheHighKey founder John Vieweg cut into common industrial products such as plywood and foam to reshape their square edges and reveal a more natural side.

The curves in the legs of the Wave table from Bend Goods create the illusion of movement and effortless support for the top.
