Glam interiors idea 1: The statement sofa

The focal point of any glam living room is of course the glam sofa. Modern glam style gives you plenty of scope in terms of shape and design – anything from square-armed contemporary to high-backed traditional can work beautifully – but your choice of upholstery is critical. At this point, we have just two words for you: pale, and velvety. Shades of silver, dove grey, pewter and even white in soft, luxurious fabrics are perfect for this look, instantly elevating your décor to dizzying heights of glam style.

But if white upholstery simply isn’t compatible with your lifestyle, you have our permission to opt for warmer neutrals or even bold jewel tones, emphasising the glam décor feel with classic details like Chesterfield buttoning, beautifully curved or scrolling arms, and striking details like metallic studding and metal legs.

Glam interiors idea 2: Light-reflecting surfaces

There’s nothing ostentatious about the new glam room style. Colours are pure, materials are high-end, and the details are understated. Let the beauty of this trend shine though with gorgeous storage pieces and unique side tables, coffee tables and console tables made of light-reflecting glass and marble. Keep lines simple and unfussy – geometric shapes work particularly well – and try to incorporate soft-toned metals with burnished brass and soft gold coloured finishes.

Glam interiors idea 3: Quietly colour coordinated

This season’s refined glam living room has a carefully-curated palette. Opt for subtle silver or pale neutrals for larger pieces of glam furniture accented with just a hint of colour – think dusty rose rather than shocking pink. Accessories rely on texture rather than tone to get the message across, so seek out intensely fluffy rugs in steadfastly neutral shades, tactile decorative pieces in pure metallic tones, and cool-to-the-touch glass and ceramic table lamps in smoky hues.


Glam interiors idea 4: Desirable Deco curves

Always on trend, the classic curves and beautiful geometric patterns of Art Deco-style furniture and accessories are a perfect way to bring home a touch of glam living room or dining room style. On a smaller scale, look out for lighting and other home accessories with swooping Deco curves and floral-inspired lines. Looking to make more of an impact? Find dining tables with curving pedestal bases, ideally with cool metallic or high-gloss finishes, or pieces with circular- or boat-shaped marble tops.


Glam interiors idea 5: Sleek Italian style

Glam interior style knows no boundaries. You may opt for a distinctively British approach – a quintessentially English sofa, a traditional chandelier – or go for something that’s more overtly European like a luxuriously sleek Italian sideboard or dining set. We’re very on board with this approach as Italian dining furniture, by brands like ALF, perfectly captures the modern glamour look – subtle in tone, understated by design and beautifully crafted.

Glam interiors idea 6: Rustic glam dining

Glam home decor with an industrial edge? If you find yourself caught between two stylish trends, never fear. Great interior design has the capacity to solve all kinds of style problems, and we've discovered that there’s nothing mutually exclusive about glam decor and industrial style as, usefully, both encompass creative combinations of glass, metal and wood. Just be sure that you opt for rather more finished surfaces – expanses of glass rather than occasional accents, smooth rather than weathered metal, and polished rather than antiqued wood.

Glam interiors idea 7: Elegant authenticity

Refined glam needn’t be a passing trend. Make this a look for a lifetime by investing in a glam sofa from one of our favourite famous brands. A sofa by Duresta displays the authentic classic sofa details that have come be associated with the glamorous furniture look – sumptuous curves, turned legs finished with polished brass castors, and gorgeously textured upholstery fabrics. It’s altogether a fabulous look for your glamorous lifestyle.
