Twentysevenpalms cushions

27palms
If you like your cushions on the kitsch and colourful side of things, check out the range from Twentysevenpalms cushions.

The cushions are made from fabric sourced from around the world and certainly won't blend quietly into your sofa. The 'glamour girls' collection features, for example, tropical pin-up girls or saucy '50s-style cowgirls. Their punk/tattoo collection is also worth a look if you're after something a little unusual. 

A 45cm square cushion cover will set you back just £12. 

You can find them at London's Portobello or Sunday Up-Market, or you can buy them online

Deco-style dressing table from Alexander and Pearl

Deco-mirrored-venetian-dressing-table-2809-p
This dressing table from Alexander and Pearl isn't the first we've featured that takes inspiration from the Art Deco style and I'm sure it won't be the last. The period works really well for a piece of furniture that's meant to evoke glamour. 

This piece certainly is glamorous, with its mirrored finish and curved shape. The mirror folds down flat, giving it a practical use as a table too when not required for make-up touch-ups. There are two concealed drawers too, perfect for stashing away beauty secrets. 

The table costs £625 with the matching stool costing an additional £275.

Bandeau High Waisted Bikini by Chloé

Chloebandeau

It might seem strange to be looking at Summer fashion fodder already, but the big names are already bringing us swimwear and summer looks in their droves. Thankfully this gives us a bit of a preview of the retro influences to come, with pieces likes this Bandeau and High-Waisted Bikini by Chloé.

The combination of a risque top and full retro bottom gives this piece an interesting retro look, offering something different from the many pin-up styled swimwear options we've recently seen. The effortless glamour of the set, achieved by a chic cut and subtle detailing, speaks of a truly seventies decadence that's hard to resist.

It's available online in the UK from Net-a-Porter for £235.

1920s glamour wallpaper by Dupenny

Dupenny 1920s
Dupenny have teased us before with their designs based on Burlesque stars and 1950s housewives and Burlesque. Now the roaring twenties get their turn in this new design – 1920s glamour wallpaper

The design captures the decadence you'd associate with that period, with a range of beautiful ladies in varying states of undress, each illustrated in their own decorative frame. The design is crammed full of the cheeky charm that you'd associate with Dupenny's products. 

Like the ladies pictured, however, it doesn't come cheap. A panel of the wallpaper measures 52cm by 3m and costs £75.

Leopard Bayswater Bag by Mulberry

Mulberrybayswater

Leopard print has by now reached near saturation as a retro print choice, but thanks to its lasting appeal across many decades it's going nowhere. While some leopard print items may end up looking more Bet Lynch than Bettie Page (no bad thing, in our opinion), there are plenty which retain that higher end classic look.

This Leopard version of the Bayswater Bag by Mulberry has an undeniable air of luxury about it, with use of a calf hair fabric and sparing gold-look hardware. Making it easier to wear leopard print with everything, the bag is oversized enough to make a big impression, without looking overworn like many dresses and coats can.

It's available in the UK from My Wardrobe, at Mulberry's usual high cost – this time £1650.

Crumpet and Skirt cushions

Ava cushion

Remember Crumpet and Skirt's charming 'tease maids', found at the bottom of one of their pin-up mugs? The company is taking that pin-up style out of the kitchen and into the kitchen/boudoir with their new cushions

The cushions come with a choice of four luscious designs to pick from. As well as Ava, pictured, there are cushions available featuring Kim, Maureen and Lana – all executed in the same retro style. 

With beauties like this beckoning you, who wouldn't want to stop for a sit down? However, if you need a further enticement, each cushion comes with its own duck feather pad. 

The cushions cost £37 each.
