Coming in at number five in the National Kitchen and Bath Association’s (NKBA) Top 10 Design Trends from its 2010 NKBA Design Competition is “Soft Geometry.” According to NKBA, “Rounded organic shapes can be seen in the edge of a counter or island top, an arch over an entryway or cooking hearth, the curved lines of a light fixture, and well-placed, space-defining soffits.”
The NKBA Trend Report goes on to add, “Softer geometry is showing up with fortitude in contemporary and traditional designs alike. The introduction of rounded islands and countertops carves a smooth-flowing traffic pattern throughout the room, while an appropriately placed arch will bring an overall softening to the more angular fixed features that are typical in kitchens and baths.”
