Not all public spaces are designed linearly. Many have curves and swoops that invite people to gather together. Some of the most intriguing and inviting designs fall outside of the basic square concept. Whether your seats circle around a lamppost, line the outer edge of a fountain or follow the winding bank of a river, a straight bench won't do the trick. You will need something a little more flexible to fit the mold.

Because this type of non-linear design is slightly less common and varies with the particular shape that is being followed, it can prove to be challenging to find seating that will work well with each space. Oftentimes, finding the right shape requires custom furnishings, and those can be pricey and time consuming.

While having a custom design will ensure that your space turns out exactly as you envision, there certainly are ways around shelling out the extra time and money and still having a successful finished product. Flex seating allows designers to create unique curves every time.

Finding seating that works with your design will enable you to put the overall design first and foremost – not designing around fixed-seating options. You can even create your own customized option with pedestal chairs from Anova. These singular seats can be grouped together in any design you desire. Whether you fit them together like puzzle pieces or space them out is completely up to the overall concept of your design.
