When it comes to trends, the one constant that remains is what goes out of style inevitably comes right back around again. Case in point: retro décor, which has proven itself as one of the biggest interior design trends as of late. Whether it's authentic midcentury-modern wares or bold terrazzo speckled accents, the past has made its way into the present.
One era that's made a serious comeback in both fashion and décor recently is the '80s. In particular, rounded sofas of the 1980s in textural fabrics like bouclé are giving sleek, modern alternatives a run for their money. This falls in line with the series of seemingly outdated or "ugly" trends that have been dominating the design world (think faded florals, maximalism, and rattan furniture).
If you're looking to invest in a statement piece of furniture that pays homage to the trends of years past, here are a few rounded sofas to take you back.
