Old Hollywood Furniture Style: Glamour Décor to Make Your Home a Star

The glamour, the glitz, the big time drama – Hollywood has the reputation of a place where dreams come to life through the camera lens and where super rich actors live life in the fab lane. When movie stars began to decorate their homes with glitz and glamour, a new design style was born. Although its popularity began in the 1930s, Old Hollywood furniture style is not a relic of the past.
Going Old Hollywood style is all about the details. It is luxy fabrics, fringed lampshades, and crystal chandeliers – all details that imbue any space with style and glamour. Here's how to add a little Hollywood Glamour elements to your home decor.

Lots of Luxe

Luxurious drapes, silk lampshades, and thick, plush carpets fall within the Old Hollywood design style. The style harkens back to an era where people really wanted to impress each other with their home décor. Using showy fabrics in your decorating scheme will give your home a sense of glamour and scale that harkens back to the era. Back then, homes were considered destinations.

Watch the Scale

In an era of overstuffed sofas and double-chaise lounges, small-scale furniture seems like a novelty. But that is what Old Hollywood style is all about. It can be difficult to get the scale right. The Miramont Collection embodies this aesthetic by taking traditional designs and reimagining them. The collection incorporates artistic elements such as dramatic fluting and reeding and unique moldings. It balances refinement and glamour in keeping with Old Hollywood style where creating a room around the furniture and the way people interact made the scene.

Glitz, Glamour and Gorgeous

The essence of Old Hollywood style is the eclectic mix of styles but the focus is on luxury. Often people go wrong thinking they can throw any flea market find into the mix. While the style does lend itself to mixing and matching, the elements still need to adhere to the overarching theme of glamour. It’s classic furniture that never goes out of style – it comes in and out of style because it is glamorous and luxurious, so keep this in mind when creating this look in your home.

The Miramont Chest in Silver Sand Finish adds a touch of glamour to the dining room. The four spacious drawers give you plenty of storage space for silverware and linens, while the silver sand finish adds glamour and refinement to the space. Although a throwback to another era, Old Hollywood style is still modern and relevant. The style evolved around entertaining – enjoying people and enjoying time together. It is also ideal for today’s design where people view their home as a haven where they can relax from their hurried lifestyle.
