elegance with a geometric design Puzzle console table, from £2,999, coffee table, from £1,899, and mirror, from £999. A Sovereign chest embossed in a silver metal effect, £429 from Fishpools, could be a statement piece, or those who shy away from the femininity of this look could make a director’s choice with an uber-stylish Magnum brown leather armchair featuring a chunky polished steel frame, £1,195 from Alexander & Pearl. STYLE STEALS Replicating this on-screen look in its entirety might not be to your taste - but flirting with it could be just the touch of frivolity needed to update a room and prove you’re in tune with trends. A monochrome scheme is always suggestive of art deco and pristine white walls with some signature pieces of furniture will endure long beyond the hype of the movie. Create a stylish dining area with a sleek dining table and monochrome chairs. Furniture Village’s Caxton Rio upholstered chair, currently £199, and its angular Silver Dragon dining table, currently £1,249, could pair well. Chandeliers are synonymous with glamour and Laura Ashley’s collection includes the Allegra tiered chandelier with layers of glass droplets which would look at home in any Hollywood mansion. A medium size is £700. Don’t overlook small details such as lamps, which can reflect a look. A Tiffany-style handcrafted Waltz Novelty lamp, £56 from QVC, decorated with a sensual dancer’s silhouette, could provide an eye-catching element. A gilded Empire State table lamp, with black shade, £99 from Dwell, celebrates the later 1930s architecture of New York’s Empire State Building. Make a feature on a table by displaying black and brass-lined bowls, from £59 from BoConcept.
