Mid Century Modern Meets Glam

Mid Century Modern and Glam go hand in hand, and incorporating the sleek and simple with the glamorous can have a beautiful effect! Old Hollywood glam started in the 20s and 30s, and as time progressed, the style began to absorb minimalist and modern designs from the 50s and 60s. Of course, shimmer and shine are front and center, and Glam is anything but simple! However, while Glam is all about luxury, bold statement pieces and metallic surfaces, the furniture is typically lighter, lower to the ground and smaller than traditional or transitional pieces. The same is true for Mid Century modern, even though pieces are more utilitarian. Still, both styles complement each other, offering a nice balance.

A statement piece is always a must for Glam or Mid Century, so why not go bold with your bed choice? This silver velvet and acrylic bed frame is the ultimate in eye-catching style! The upholstery is not only totally glamorous (especially thanks to that button tufting) but the velvet texture recalls vintage elements of bygone eras. The clear acrylic frame adds a cool edginess to the overall look, in accordance with the black nickel mirrored side tables.

Since the rest of this look is stunning, you shouldn’t forget about the ever-important accent chair! Not just a comfortable place to relax, an accent chair will complete your design and add unique personality to the space. This matching silver velvet chair sports the same clear acrylic legs as the bed, but takes cues from Mid Century trends.

For a warmer, more classic style, these pieces are also available in gold velvet. You really can’t get much more retro-glam than this! While gold, button tufted velvet, may be a bold statement, it doesn’t mean you should shy away from color. The right color scheme can do wonders, and you can have vivid hues without causing the design to look too busy. Bedding is a great starting point for introducing your complementary colors. The white and blue trellis comforter adds texture while being a low-key backdrop for patterned and more saturated throw pillows. Funky accessories that pull from this color pool (like that abstract dog statue on the end table) are right at home in this room!

Here’s that unique accent chair in gold velvet. If you want to add another design element that’s a little more eclectic, try a vintage Mid-Century chair or a more traditional arm chair instead.

A desk in your bedroom can double as a work space or a vanity. A glam styled, backless stool is the just the right match for this beveled mirrored writing desk. Sparkling surfaces are a staple for Glam, but this desk has modern elements sporting sleek, angular chrome legs.
