Mirrors are capable of transforming a space. Not only do the reflective properties of looking glasses show us an objective view of ourselves, they also highlight various angles and corners of the rooms that they occupy. This striking sense of revealing light and space is one of the things that have made mirrors in the home such a tantalising proposition for as long as anyone can remember.
The various styles of mirrors; from personal looking glass to bathroom and hallway mirrors, can give a new sense of perspective. Designers take inspiration from a variety of different ideas to offer mirrors with a studied artfulness, and an elegant style that sits well with modern sophistication.
Here are some ideas that we at Dotmaison feel showcase exactly what is possible with designs for home mirrors.
Take the striking AYTM Angui Mirror (above and title image). The modern look of the mirror, available in black or rose pink, is founded on the curved nature of its steel pipe frame. The production utilises the materials of aluminium and iron, and offers a strong and purposeful foundation combining beautifully with the creative appearance of the curves and soft angles of the piece. Perfect for any room or hallway, the Angui Mirror is a mirror sure to dramatically change the whole view of an interior.
The versatility of the mirror form is shown off wonderfully well with the Magnifying Table Mirror by Zone Denmark. Offering a standard mirror on one side and a triple magnified looking glass on the other, this excellent table-top mirror is ideal for a number of different interiors. It could be great for a bedroom table acting as a dressing mirror, bathrooms and hallways could also benefit from its studied presence.
Mixing the unforgettable ideas of the style magazine Toiletpaper with the expertise of production house Seletti, the Seletti Wears Toiletpaper Mirror Medium, Snakes is artistic inspiration meets functional aesthetic. Arriving with a hook for easy installation in any room, the mirror also comes with a stand for positioning.
