5 Eye catching mirrors on trend right now

I love mirrors always have, they have always been on trend, but never so much as now, with lots of lovely and unique finishes being used, different shapes being constructed and light being added into the frames. I wanted to share why you should use mirrors in your home:

  1. They are art forms in their own right.
  2. The colour tone changes with the time and light of the day
  3. They create a feeling of space and light
  4. They reflect light
  5. A well placed mirror can highlight dark corners
  6. They are good positioned near an entrance to check yourself before you go out.

I recently went to an interior design exhibition purely to look for mirror inspiration to create impact for a project that I was undertaking. I wanted to share some of the fantastic designs that I found.

 

Laural Mirror

Laurel Mirror

The Laurel mirror is sculptured to resemble folding leaves. It has a beaten relaxed appearance, it is 1100mm diameter and comes in a burnt silver/French brass finish, and it is a simply beautiful and classic mirror that would look lovely above any mantle piece.

Polished Brass Mirror

1960's Inspired Mirror

I love this inspired 1960’s inspired mirror, handmade in Italy. It comes in an Antiqued, aged or polished brass frame with either rounded or mitred corners. It is very slim which makes it so appealing.

Concave Glass Mirror

This mirror is amazing when you look at yourself in it; it has a soft edge to it as if you are in a fading picture. It is quite large at 1200mm in diameter and is a really impressive talking point. Individual production, hand silvered concave glass mirror, spun backing plate, gold, bronze, silver, or brass edging frame.

Polished Brass Mirror

This mirror is like a work of art, it is so clearly designed and is so beautiful but simple. It is shown here in polished brass mirror bronze with satin brass frame. It really is a stunning piece.

Mirage Mirror

Mirage Mirror

My favourite mirror is called Mirage – it is hand-made and as said by the designer David Harber "Mirage is my fabulous new wall sculpture that incorporates light and reflection and will transform any interior setting. For me it stands out as an all-seeing azure eye" A Verdigris bronze outer body surrounds the burnished warmth of hammered copper which in turn frames a bevelled mirror. Beyond the outer circumference of the Mirage, integrated LED lights give an ethereal halo of copper reflections.
