Antique Designer Mirrors That We Can’t Stop Talking About: Part 1
When it comes to the art of stylish décor, a designer mirror is the ultimate expression of creativity and balance. Mirrors bring light, style, and personality to any dull room and can be the go-to piece for any space looking for an instant upgrade. In addition, if you’re looking to tie your space together and create a unified design from multiple different sources, then a mirror can be the difference-maker.
In this two-part blog, we’re going to look through some of the most striking designs we have in store and show you what can be achieved with the right antique mirror.
Something that has us swooning and many of our customers is anything that can exude a rustic aesthetic.
There’s something special about a piece that feels like it has some sort of history behind it. Distressed details manage to achieve this, even if they don’t necessarily have that history. This also seems like the appeal of antique pieces in general, with worn and treasured possessions being in far greater demand than newly made modern pieces.
Styles that thrive with distressed or antique finishes are, of course, boho and Moroccan mirrors. Both of which put a heavy emphasis on materials and rustic approaches to design.
Round & Round
On that note, round mirror designs are unbelievably popular at the moment. With a simple shape, most of the creativity surrounding round-shaped mirrors comes from their adornments as well as the ingenuity in their framing.
However, the enduring designs of modern tastes are those that maximize minimal framing. Sticking with a thin metal frame that simply adorns your round mirror can be the ultimate way to instantly introduce a window of pure creativity to your home that isn’t distracted with a more complex frame or coloring.
Round mirror designs have been popular in bathrooms for decades, as the circular shape often counters the very geometric look of traditional bathrooms.
Bursting with Style
While minimal framing has become a massive aspect of contemporary décor, that doesn’t mean there isn’t space for the more adventurous designs as well.
Sunburst mirrors have torpedoed themselves to the forefront of consumers’ minds, with the art-deco style practically selling themselves, and it’s easy to see why! Sunburst-style mirrors are perfect for living and dining rooms, creating a secondary focal point for the home to enhance feature walls and broader color schemes.
That’s it for today’s blog. However, if you’d like to learn about more of our most popular mirror designs, then come back next Monday for Part 2!
