3 of the best baroque and roll

 

Let glamour be thy guide is the home-décor mantra of fabulously flamboyant interior designer Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen, and his new collection for Littlewoods Ireland has glamour with bells on. Available at littlewoodsireland.ie, the range’s baroque details require a large dollop of irony.

Make over your mantel with a gilded clock, €37; create a feature wall with this set of five portfolio mirrors, €104; or release your inner swashbuckling Freddie Mercury with a Scaramouche dressing table, mirror and stool set, €339.

Create instant atmosphere for dramatic dining or give electric lighting a miss in your sittingroom with this decorative gold-finish five-arm candelabrum.

This piece is 60cm high and 31cm wide and has already sold out. A second order is due at the UK-based online shop by the end of the month.

It costs £125 (about €156) from Alexander and Pearl (0044-2085080411; alexanderandpearl.co.uk). Delivery to Dublin costs another £30. Auction houses are also worth a look for the real deal. Dressing for dinner is a must.

Lend mealtimes some drama with these Star by Julien Macdonald placemats, €23.50 each at Debenhams ( debenhams.ie).
