This October marks the return of Made In Chelsea (MiC) and The Only Way is Essex (TOWIE) back to our TV screens! Oh how we’ve missed Joey Essex’s antics and Spencer Matthew’s love triangles.

Whether you feel at home strolling down The King’s Road or you’re more partial to quaffing Cristal at Brentwood’s Sugar Hut, take a look at how you can get the look of your favourite reality TV stars homes:

Made in Chelsea

The suitably named Chelsea Village sofa is handmade in England by Duresta. Upholstered in your choice of luxury fabric, the roll top arms and beautifully padded back and seat cushions of this 3 seater, make it perfect for enjoying a cup of chai tea… or just a builders brew.

Conran Balance coffee table This chic designer coffee table will look fabulous in your Chelsea penthouse. Available in dark and light oak veneer finishes, the Conran will add a contemporary feel to your home. We can imagine Jamie Laing, heir to the McVitie’s fortune keeping his biscuit tin on this one.

Tempur Honfluer When you’re out socializing most evenings it’s important to have a quality bed you can catch up on beauty sleep in - and the superb Tempur Hornfleur & Deluxe 27 mattress is just the thing. This bedstead exudes elegance, with antique detailing, deep buttoning on the headboard and upholstered in sumptuous velvet fabric – and it’s not just good looks, the Deluxe mattress is like sleeping on a cloud.

The Grassington would look perfectly at home at the family pile in the Cotswolds…if you’re lucky enough to have one! This traditional oak dining table comfortably seats up to 8 guests, making it perfect for throwing lavish dinner parties.

The Only Way is Essex

At the touch of a button, watch the TV rise from the base of this bedstead - great for when you want to stay under the covers. Enjoy your favourite TV programmes, films, games and more, without ever having to move a muscle. Upholstered in 100% leather and available in a range of different colours, the Park Lane TV bed is nothing less that reem - we think Joey Essex would agree.

Pull out all the stops with the sensational marble Silver Dragon dining set. The glamorous, high gloss finish of this marble table enables you to check your reflection as you eat - ensuring you’re always dining in style! The coordinating dining chairs are upholstered in glitzy silver fabric, for an extravagant dining experience.

St. Lucia chaise sofa We’re sure Mario and Lucy would love this luxurious, white leather corner chaise sofa in their apartment! Ideal for making the most of a smaller space, it’s great for really stretching out on.

Eternity floor lamp This glossy floor lamp will shed instant glamour into your home, with it’s chrome effect base and circular glass shade. We can imagine Lydia Bright reading a book…or rather painting her nails underneath it.
