Interior design trends:cocoon your home in luxury this winter with dramatic chandeliers, velvet sofas, diamanté cushions and gold cutlery

Embrace the dark of lengthening nights, reflecting the light with mirrors, metals, lacquer, silk and satin.

Some top brands do costly opulence in overdrive, trailing clouds of glamour. But gold cutlery, cut glass, plush sofas and chandeliers are in the high street for winter, too. Add these latest looks to cocoon your home in luxury.

Jonathan Adler has a wildly successful, somewhat outré brand in the US, and brings his lavish look to two London stores in SW3 and W11.

Jonathan Adler: ultra marble and rose gold dining table at £3,650; Vienna Pulegoso glass chandelier, £3,195; Caracas buttoned slipper chair in navy velvet, £2,950, and the Short Vesuvius vase at £168.
