Decorative Mirrors Aplenty
There’s one more day to visit us in High Point, as Fall Market winds down tomorrow. If you’ve already been to our showroom at IHFC M110 on Main Street, you may have noticed how the array of decorative mirrors we have on the walls adds such a glint to the atmosphere when the thousands of bulbs in our light fixtures reflect from them. The Elena Round Mirror is now one of these. It is shown in the vignette above with a number of our new fall products on a background of wavy Thibaut wallpaper.
New Decorative Mirrors
The Chadee Black Mirror is shown with our new Piero Black Pendants against a backdrop of geometric wallpaper by Thibaut.
There are ten new offerings this fall in styles that will excite virtually anyone regardless of their design predilections! If you spot one of these new decorative mirrors in the showroom that you feel merits a shout-out, snap a pic of it and tag us on Instagram at @curreyco. One of our new introductions is our popular Chadee mirror in black. Its shape celebrates the classic starburst mirror but its profile is a twist on the tried-and-true design with its undulating rays rendered in reclaimed wood finished in a rich black.
This is because the rays are made of tiny rolling pins that were used to flatten chapati bread, then painted. The black decorative mirror will be more versatile than its more formal sisters, though when seen from afar it has all of the flaring beauty of the antique-inspired shapes.
The Taurus Rectangular Mirror has a number of artisanal aspects to its design and construction. The handmade ivory and black mirror has mitered corners that follow the line telescoping from the beveled reflective glass. Once the bone and composite materials have been fitted together in tidy lines, texture is achieved on the frame when artisans mark the white speckled bone with a brazing tool. This level of specificity and the fact that the frame is composed like an intricate puzzle make this a special accent piece designed by Aimee Kurzner.
The Niva Round Wall Mirror has the look of horn thanks to the talented artisans who work with composite to make it look like a natural material. The round frame is fitted with a metal ring in a brass finish where it intersects with the mirror, which draws out the warm tones in the faux horn. The outside of the frame is finished in cream to echo the lighter tones, which brings this white mirror a pale and pretty profile.
The Bindu Round Mirror is the centerpiece of this vignette of new fall products.
Aimee Kurzner designed the Bindu Round Mirror to be a modernist-inspired accent in a space. Made of black composite and pieces of buffalo horn, which is chiseled to bring the surface added texture, the ivory and black mirror will make a statement wherever it is hung. Both the exterior and interior edges are finished with pieces of the black composite to complete the feeling of fine detailing. It is shown above with a number of our new products that include the Bindu Box Set, the Martini Torchiere Table Lamp, the Helice Large and Small Marble Rings, and the Kendall Credenza.
The Kuna Small Wall Mirror convinces the eye that it is made of natural horn but it is an artisanal piece made of composite to look strikingly like the material. Not only does the tan and black mirror bring the feel of elemental sophistication into a space, it creates an incredible textural moment from its spot on the wall. A point of fine detailing includes how the material continues around both the inner and outer edges to further reflect the tonal qualities real horn would exhibit. We also offer the Kuna in a large version.
The Elena Round Mirror is an artisanal offering made of intermingled pieces of Toronto and India white marble. The spacing of the darker Toronto marble brings the frame of the gray-brown and white decorative mirror balance and sophistication. The cleat on the back of the piece is placed so that it will hang with the ornamental textural strips in the perfect position. A highly considered aspect of the design is how the pieces of Toronto stone are reflected in the surface of the mirror. We also offer the Elena in a rectangular version.
The Andar Oval Mirror has a beautiful ellipse shape. Bringing the dark brown and ivory mirror a feel of tailored sophistication are the slight tonal variations of the cream-colored bone and the striations created when the pieces of the natural material are placed onto the frame in a way that there is ribbing on the surface. A thin wood edge in a dark walnut finish envelops the bone, extending around to both the interior and exterior edges of the Andar.
The Santos Vintage Navy Rectangular Mirror is one of the striking new decorative mirrors in our fall lineup.
The Santos Vintage Navy Rectangular Mirror is hand-made of rattan, the rounded shapes extremely difficult to achieve with such a strong material. Then a vintage navy finish covers the entire frame, the patina it brings to the navy-blue mirror a design detail worth noting. The beveled edges on the mirror are also done by hand, and there are two cleats on the back so that it can be hung vertically or horizontally. It is also available in a Sea Sand finish, shown below with the Triboa mirror.
The Triboa and Santos Sea Sand Rectangular Mirrors shown with the Anisa Natural Parchment Storage Bench.
The Triboa Mirror is hand-made of arurog, the rounded shapes extremely difficult to achieve with such a strong material. The natural color variations of the reeds enliven the tan mirror with patina. A finely designed detail is how the layers of the natural material thicken the frame around the mirrored glass. This treatment brings depth to the artisanal piece and illustrates the painstaking efforts our craftspeople put into our designs. The two decorative mirrors are shown with the Anisa Natural Parchment Storage Bench.
Last, but by no means least, the Dario Round Mirror is a seriously sturdy decorative mirror. Made of slices of marble in varying thicknesses and lengths, the interplay of short and long, and thick and thin brings the profile a nice dose of texture, as does the graining in the natural material. Aimee Kurzner was inspired by a tile mosaic when she designed the piece. A refined aspect of the design is how the substrate to which the pieces of marble are affixed is painted in a matching hue to make every aspect of the gray mirror seamless.
As you can see from these new pieces, we have earned the bragging rights to say Mirror, Mirror on the Wall! In the weeks to come, we will be sharing our sizeable offerings that we have just introduced for fall this very week. Be sure to check back next week when we feature the new program of shades for chandeliers, lanterns, and wall sconces.
