Shop 2024’s “It” Shape with These 10 Scalloped Furniture Pieces
If there’s one motif set to define 2024 interior design trends, it’s scallops. As part of Apartment Therapy’s annual State of Home Design survey, 59% of the designers polled predicted that this wavy silhouette would be everywhere this year, and it’s already started to dominate home decor in the form of scalloped-trim rugs, lamp shades, bedding, and beyond.
Now, I’m also noticing new scalloped furniture cropping up among home retailers and DIY projects alike — and it’s easy to see why. Overall, this trend offers a more refined, sophisticated, and somewhat coastal-inspired approach to the soft, fluid pieces that have been all the rage since 2020. Plus, since the undulated scallop shape is typically confined to just edging or a border, you can lean into the popular curved look on a more low-stakes level. Scalloped sizing and proportions vary, too — some pieces may have small-scale half-moon patterns, whereas others might be decked out in more defined, dramatic trims.
Either way, this here-to-stay aesthetic is leaving its mark on all kinds of furniture designs, from scalloped-edge sofas to side tables. Below, I rounded up a few of my favorite (small-space-friendly!) pieces of scalloped furniture you can buy right now from Urban Outfitters, Amazon, and more — starting at $120.
