With the Halloween season fast approaching, it’s never been a better time to look at some of the more Gothic styles of antique designer mirrors we have in store!
Gothic décor is making a comeback these days, with more adventurous designs and styles becoming more commonplace as people use their homes more actively to express themselves. For those that love the gothic style, there’s an abundance of fun ideas eras to play with, with just about every significant design movement having something that can cater to a macabre aesthetic.
One piece of décor that stands above the rest, however, is the designer mirror. Mirrors are already pretty spooky and mysterious and have an almost supernatural ability to improve the space around them. As a result, mirrors are perfect additions to any room trying to nail a spooky, gothic vibe.
In today’s blog, we’re going to showcase some of our favorite pieces and explore how they can help you further your deep and dark decorating desires.
Nine Inch Nailed Design
First up, we have the stunning Gears Round Black Wooden mirror. This piece has all of the gothic aesthetics you could ask for, even if it doesn’t at first appear so.
With a spoked gear design in its framing, this piece calls back to the industrial age and perfectly fits any urban-industrial space. If you have a New York-style loft or factory-conversion apartment, this designer mirror will fit in seamlessly while also matching any surrounding décor.
A black textured wooden frame makes this piece adaptable and will allow it to match with any gothic-themed furniture in your dwelling.
Old School Scares
Sometimes, if you want to get the perfect look, you have to go with the classics. This Clement French Antique Vintage Standing Mirror is the ideal choice for those who want an elegant décor piece that wouldn’t look out of place in Dracula’s lair.
While this piece is available in gold, it’s the black variation that you want. The black finish allows all of the gorgeous detailing in the frame to instantly feel deeper and engulf the reflective surface.
Situate this piece in a living room or bedroom and feel the total weight of this statement piece as it dominates any room you place it in.
Shards of Glass
Sometimes, attaining an authentic gothic aesthetic isn’t about having your home look like a museum for horror films, but rather it’s about living up to the abrasive spirit of the gothic design itself. Being rebellious and challenging is crucial to the gothic style, and taking risks can be vital.
Look no further than the Diamond Brass Decorative Wall Mirror for a challenging piece that will lend an instant boost of attitude to a space. This piece stands as a sharp-edged furniture piece that will refuse to be ignored by anyone that sees it.
Usually, designers and decorators will steer clear of triangular-shaped mirrors because they often give the impression of broken glass, looking dangerous and off-putting. However, this piece is all about embracing those hold-ups and standing as something instantly recognizable.
