Inspired by the beautifully sculptural effect of curved architectural walls, the work of French interior designer Francois Champsaur, has a beautiful smooth timber finish.

Bold in black and incredibly textural, this piece was designed by CM Studio.
It features a distinctive curved batten pod that cleverly conceals the apartment’s bathroom.

Curved walls are visually interesting and work well to soften sharp lines of an
interior space. The same effect can be created with a room divider, furniture,
or smaller design pieces such as ceramics and art. Here are some examples.
Right now I’m swooning over this Swoon chair. I especially have an eye for that velvet one.
I discovered a wonderful new source for furniture online called The French Connection. These are my favorites.
French designer Ora-Ïto has developed a conceptual
trainer with curved veneer sections to reference the
work of Modernist furniture designers
Charles and Ray Eames.
I’ll take the chair over the shoes any day.
