Rounded Wall "Corners"

Are rounded, rather than 90degree walls, popular anymore in 2014? I thought they were a 1990's thing but some people still think they are terrific.

They still do them here (Pacific Northwest) in new construction. Coming from the east, I had never seen them except in very old houses. I think it may be a craftsman influence?? I guess they have some advantages as far as paint not chipping, we'll see. It's a pretty tight round, maybe the curve of a nickel.

I don't know if they are a 90's thing or not. But changing them would be a big job and I would not even consider it.

They are called bullnose edges. Changing them will require a lot of demo, drywall and texture repairs because it's a rounded metal strip applied to 90 degree corners to soften the look.

I wasn't going to change them, but rather clad over some bullnose-edged square shaped columns. I'm coming from Florida, where I've never seen them, to Michigan, where they seem the thing to do.
