If you love the chic sophistication of glistening accessories, shimmering rugs or stunning accent chairs, why not treat your home a to cheeky New Year makeover?

The new Wellington Glamour sofa takes the lavish traditional style of the Wellington sofa, with its sweeping scroll arms and turned wooden feet with castors, and adds striking crushed velvet upholstery, the option of sumptuous pillow scatter backs and generously buttoned footstools. In a choice of rich colours this roomy, comfortable sofa is an absolutely fabulous focal point, adding instant glamour to any living room. Pair it with the gorgeous Sirocco coffee table, with its textured marble top and brushed nickel legs.

You can add the same glamour and ‘wow’ factor to your bedroom with the Dreamworks Mix and Match Lexie Bedstead, handcrafted in the UK. Its grandly tall, contemporary headboard has a rich, panelled look with two rows of sumptuous buttoning, and you can choose your favourite from eight bright and beautiful colours. It’s everything a luxurious bedstead should be, at an outstanding value price.

A bedroom bench is always an elegant addition, and the beautiful Ariel bench with bolsters, handcrafted in the UK, comes in a choice of fabrics including velvets and crushed velvets.

Another way to add some bling to your bedroom is with the Francesca range of bedroom furniture. It has gleaming mirrored surfaces, drawers with bevelled edges and mock crystal drawer handles. There’s a choice of wide or tall chests, go for a bedroom set or simply choose the Francesca 2 drawer bedroom cabinet to add a generous splash of sparkle.

What could be more over-the-top glamorous than a candelabra on the dinner table? Standing dramatically over two feet tall, the decorative Nickel Table Candelabra will bring romance to your dinner party or romantic meal for two, and make any evening magical. And if you like drama in your décor, the Ambrose pendant light is sure to steal the show. Inspired by the Art Nouveau era, it has a shade of stylised feathered leaves, finished in hand-applied gold leaf so that is positively shimmers.

On the subject of lavish lighting, go for grandeur with the Twisted Sculpture floor lamp, with its dramatic silvered ribbon swirling up the base or the sparkling Halo Shaftesbury Chandelier with its multiple precision cut glass crystals adding a splash of vintage chic. Or you can add some modern sparkle with the Eternity table lamp, with its shaped chrome circles decorated with gleaming glass crystals.

The feather filled Dahlia cushion is stylish and luxurious, with a vibrant abstract floral pattern picked out in the cut velvet style in a choice of rich colours. And the Kylie Minogue Eva Diamond Cushion is sure to catch the attention with its glass embellishments catching the light like real diamonds – it gives any sofa or bed the star treatment.

For real luxury, you have to add a large, plush rug, such as the shimmering Marlow Silver rug. It adds a feeling of warmth to your décor and is a silky soft treat underfoot. It’s just one of our huge choice of rich, soft rugs in every colour you can imagine.

Make a statement, and add a touch of drama, with a show-stopping accent chair. The New England Nantucket fabric armchair is upholstered in a soft, velvety fabric and its curved back and seat are lavishly buttoned.

And finally, what better way to add gleam and shine to your home than with a beautiful mirror? We love the round and decorative Mondello mirror , the striking Art deco style Lowry Silver mirror and the sleek, tray style Kinsella mirror. But if you want to really splash out, you don’t get much more glamorous than the Halo Saturn Large Mirror. This round mirror’s frame lights up, with the rich frame embellishment of multiple glass beads reflecting the light spectacularly.

If you’re looking to up the glamour factor, a few key pieces – whether that’s a sparkling new lamp, a silky rug or a lavish bedstead – can transform your bedroom, dining room or living room. When it comes to making your home feel really special, a little luxe goes a long way.
