When cocktail hour calls, glam up your drinks trolley with a chic decanter, elegantly etched with fine detailing. Just the thing for mixing Mai Tais.

Catch the last rays reflected from Laguna Beach with these curvaceous metal mirrors. Zhuzh up the ocean colour scene with graphic patterns underfoot.

An iconic piece of Seventies seating, this low-slung sofa invites you to lay back and relax – its swathes of tactile velvet in deepest blue are as tempting as a dip in the Pacific.

Sharpen up the decade's shag-pile look with on-trend geometrics. A sophisticated combo of brass and marble gives this elegant table its designer edge.

Untreated wood and faux coral and starfish ramp up the beachcomber vibe – throw in some Seventies sculptures of animal forms to re-create a day out in Malibu.

Embellished with concentric circles, this brass-fronted cabinet is a decadent take on Seventies Scandi looks... Mirror balls and music-inspired art provide a hit of rock 'n'roll style.

Ruched-leather detailing gives this plumped-up chair its air of opulent glamour – match its sleek metal legs with gleaming accessories to conjure up a scheme fit for a Hollywood diva.

Forget about the lava lamp – with its off-kilter curves and crescent-shaped band, this light is an icon of the future. Team with an edgy tripod table unafraid to show off its grain.

Double the pamper factor by dressing a luxe leather bed in pure, sensual silk. Floral wall art and a fabulously ornate floor lamp keep the Palm Springs spirit alive.
