Urban Outfitters’s New Spring Line Is Keeping This Furniture Trend Alive
And the pieces are selling fast.

Ever since 2019, we haven’t been able to get enough of wavy lines and their ability to soften up the straight lines of a cookie-cutter room. (Exhibit A: This undulating rainbow rug. Exhibit B: These prismatic walls. We could go on for days.) So imagine our excitement when we learned that Urban Outfitters’s spring collection, out now, gives us even more squiggly lines to get excited about. And we’re not the only ones who are ready to shop—a coffee table from the collection has already sold out.
What makes this collection so special is that the retailer has taken the trend, which is usually in Technicolor, and put it in neutral. For example, a wall mirror’s rickrack border is made from cherrywood. The sofa’s upholstery comes in a creamy ivory or olive green. And that ceramic casserole dish’s two tones (beige and terracotta) mean it will go with everything.
Each piece is the furniture equivalent of a deep, calming breath. Here are five ways to go with the flow of the new collection.
A Soothing Sofa
The gentle ups and downs of this sofa’s rubber-wood base make it a chill place to catch up on reading or take Zoom calls. And the armless style lends itself to a more open and inviting room.
Your New Selfie Spot
Curvy mirrors already dominate Instagram, and this wood version is a new entry into the canon. Its round shape adds a touch of softness to a bedroom or entryway.
Make Statement Storage a Thing
We know we said that neutral shades give you design flexibility because they go with practically everything, but this console also comes in a green that would set the tone (quite literally) below a TV or as a dining room buffet.
The Attention-Seeking Shelf
Flowers, books, and candles will have to compete with this roller-coaster mango wood shelf, which is display worthy all on its own.
A Hot Dish
The subtle arches on this stoneware casserole dish draw the eye toward whatever’s baking inside, and the two neutral tones go with everything.
