Kelvingrove named as the most stylish place to live in Glasgow

A new survey has named Kelvingrove as the most stylish place to live in Glasgow.

The posh west end area beat Bearsden, Milngavie and Blythswood to come out on top. Furniturebox asked 5000 locals to rank locations on beauty of the buildings, scenery, how ‘Instagrammable’ they are and their popularity as a filming location.

Kelvingrove, which is known for its iconic architecture, was recently used as a location for recent filming of the much anticipated Outlander prequel series Blood of My Blood. The area also boasts Kelvingrove park and museum which are popular with social media users.

Bearsden was named second most stylish with third Milngavie, Blythswood fourth and Merchant City fifth.

A Furniturebox spokesperson said: “Kelvingrove is the most stylish place to live in Glasgow. All 60 places on the list would have been worthy winners and show why the UK is such a stylish country, loved by artists, film-makers and tourists from all over the world.

“What is interesting is how influential Instagram has become in boosting tourism in many of our top 60, particularly around Glasgow. It is a massive help for visitor numbers, too, if a popular film or TV show uses a town or village as a location.

“Most of the locations in the top 60 are not the most affluent or fashionable in their localities. It shows that style can be achieved whatever your budget - and that is very true of furniture.”

Furniturebox was founded by former school friends Monty George and Dan Beckles, both aged 26, eight years ago and is already a rival to Dunelm, Habitat and Ikea as one of the UK’s leading furniture brands.
