How to Design a Room With the Old Hollywood Glamour Style

Are you inspired by the interior design showcased in The Great Gatsby? Do you want to bring styles of classic Hollywood to your home? Check out our tips for decorating your home in the Old Hollywood Glamour design style.

What Does Old Hollywood Glamour Mean in Interior Design?

Homes decorated in the Old Hollywood Glamour style make us feel nostalgic for the allure of entrancing, doe-eyed movie stars.

Furniture in this design style is characterized by:

  • Bold, deep colors
  • Dramatic, timeless silhouettes
  • Rich, plush materials and upholstery

Ellie Design Studio explains, “Hollywood Glam decor is exactly what it sounds like – excessive everyday glamour. Infused with the requisite high-shine lacquered finishes, metallics, and rich fabrics with a nod to Art Deco and Mid Century Modern practicality.”

Old Hollywood Glamour Sofas in the Bay Area

You can visit our Sofa Creations showrooms in San Francisco and San Rafael to get inspiration for your Hollywood Glam interior design, or we can design a completely custom piece for your home. Here are some of our favorite classic Hollywood sofas and sectionals:

  • Barcelona Sofa — The Barcelona Sofa is classy and timeless, with beautiful tufting in a diamond pattern across the back and sides. We recommend customizing your Barcelona with a rich, bold color for maximum glamour.
  • Carson Sectional — With gently curving armrests, a sleek chaise seat, and overstuffed cushions, you’ll find grace and comfort in the Carson Sectional.
  • Clyde Sofa — Clean lines and soft features characterize our subtle Clyde Sofa.
  • Dublin Sofa — Our Dublin Sofa looks like something Ava Gardner would have sat upon in the classic film Pandora and the Flying Dutchman. Its glamorous straight arms and back are blind-tufted with a biscuit pattern, and are defined with slight, subtle piping in the seams.
  • Hayes Sectional — The Hayes Bumper Chaise Sectional is full of glamour with beautiful tufting along the back and arms, slim legs, and perfectly straight piping along the seams.
  • Logan Sofa — Any movie star would love to get their hands on an eclectic, gorgeous Logan Sofa. Its low back, round side cushions, and subtle tufting along the seat make this sofa a chic addition to any room.
  • Nines Sofa — We’re willing to bet Audrey and Marilyn had a sofa like the Nines Sofa in their hey days. Its low back is accessorized with a high row of gentle tufting, and its single seat cushion adds even more drama to the couch.
  • Pauline Sofa — The Pauline is the ultimate statement piece with its high back cushions, nailhead trim, and subtly rounded arm rests.
  • Reagan Sofa — You’ll love the Reagan Sofa’s double back cushions, angled arms, and elegant, slim legs.
  • Victoria Sectional — You won’t be able to look away from your Victoria Sectional with its sloping arms, tufted, cushy back, and clean lines.
