7 Holiday Décor Objects That Will Add Glitz and Glam to Your Space

Ditch the red and green for these glittering metallics that will work long after New Year’s.

Here’s to the soft glow of a holiday that eschews the standard red and green and embraces the shine of metallics: silver, brass and the gleam factor of gold.

Golden Hour

The black-and-brass contrast of Ikea’s Snofsa table clock ($15) will bring a sleek-yet-subtle gleam and silent-night timing (no annoying tick-tock) to the fireplace mantel—and remind Santa to stay on schedule.

Container Chic

Crate and Barrel’s Thompson canisters (from $40) are worthy of display as gold-and-marble repositories to stash all those holiday treats, whether shortbread cookies or candy canes.

Twinkle, Twinkle

This Tiffany star ($340), which combines the softness of American walnut with the shine of sterling silver (on a signature-blue ribbon), is destined to become a beloved ornament for generations. Hang from a tree—or anywhere that could use an extra glint.

Designer’s Pick: Serving It Right

$200,  “This multi-use black-oak-and-brass square tray can be used anywhere, whether it’s serving up a round of festive cocktails or providing a luminous surface for a flickering candle display. I love mixing elegant metallics with natural materials like the tray’s oak edge to help achieve Form West’s signature look of laid-back luxury.”—Charlotte Fenton of Form West Interiors


Wild and Wonderful

A sculptural statement and unexpected bit of quirky glitz from Jonathan Adler, the Brass Talon bowl ($198 U.S.)—hand-cast from a clay model in Adler’s Soho studio—will reign over a tablescape and hold those persimmons with aplomb.

Hang Out

Showcase holiday cards and mementos on sparkly silver or gold chains ($15). The string-like display uses magnets and can be set up horizontally or vertically; either way, it’s a brilliant way to create a festive feature wall.

Glam, Squared

Channel some elusive Gwyneth allure with the champagne-gold finish of Cubo ($699). The stainless steel side table is part of the Goop x CB2 collection and brings a bit of celebrity glamour home for the holidays—as well as an additional entertaining surface.
