River Mirrors (via)
There are many new trendy mirror items on the market. Some expensive, some affordable, but many of which you may not even know existed.
In this post we look at five of the more trendy mirrors and mirrored furniture of 2012.
If youíre looking for a natural mirror look, there are designer River Mirrors. River Mirrors are created by UK artist and designer Caryn Moberly, and no two are alike. They are created by using burred elm wood. The wood gives off a natural, river bank look, with the mirror resembling water flowing in between. These very unique and limited designer mirrors are not something you will find at your local IKEA, and have to be shipped from the UK.
Mirrored Side Table (via)
Why not go for the function of a table, with the angular style of this faceted mirror side table? The mirrors refract light, lightening up the room while being trendy and fairly affordable. This mirrored table ships for $160 from West Elm.
Mirrored Cabinets (via)
If you want to store your table linens and dinner wear with style and grace, this antique mirrored cabinet will do the trick. The art-deco inspired cupboard faÁade is the perfect way to get reflective. This designer did the cabinet justice, by placing a unique designer rug in front of the reflective facing.
Floor Mirror (via)
If you want a large mirror to check yourself out in, this antique tiled floor mirror is the way to go. It can be mounted or leaned against a wall. By placing it across from a window, it acts as having a second window in oneís room, reflecting natural light making the room appear brighter and even more spacious.
Antique Tiled Wall Mirrors (via)
If youíre someone that likes to redecorate using the same items, the versatility of this 24îx36î wall mirror is for you. Itís the perfect size to hang on your wall, lean on top of a dresser, or to use as a floor mirror. And both horizontally and vertically look just as beautiful.
Whether youíre going antiqued, floor, wall, side table, or river, mirrored furniture and designer mirrors are a great way to redecorate a room. They are so versatile, theyíre easy to hang, and are a perfect way to show off other design cues, be it simply the light from a window, a cactus, a designer rug, and other decorative displays.
