What is the Scalloped Trend?

What is the scalloped trend, where did it come from and why is it so popular?

Scalloped and waved edges have existed in interior design since the late Renaissance period, featuring heavily in both fashion & furniture.

The style continued to gain popularity in fashion during the Victorian era, with scalloped edged skirts & collars becoming synonymous with haute couture.

It wasn’t until the Art Deco movement of the 1920’s that this feature peaked in interiors, with scalloping being featured on everything possible, including mirrors, tiles, lighting and furniture.

Why are Scalloped Edges Trending?

Over the past few years we have seen curved lines in general trending in the interior space, starting with the popular arch shape, this trend has now evolved in waved and scalloped edges.

But why?

For the majority of 2010’s the minimalist trend has reigned supreme,  with clean lines, sleek design and neutral colours being the overarching interior trend.

However, as we have moved into the 2020’s, with many people having spent more time inside over the past few years due to the pandemic, interior trends are now becoming more whimsical, colourful and playful.
