New Decorative Mirrors
Mirror, mirror on the wall; who’s the fairest of them all? We thought we’d let you decide which of our new decorative mirrors launched this spring you would choose as your answer! The array of wall mirrors we offer in total is expansive; if you haven’t taken a look in a while, you can find all of them in this dedicated section of our website.
New Decorative Mirrors
Texture and depth bring our Ellaria Round Mirror, inspired by a traditional Indian design, a powerful punch. Handmade of bone arranged in crosshatches that are inset with floral motifs, also in bone, the round mirror has an exotic appeal with its brass details. This is a remarkably demanding design to achieve given each element is fitted into the composition by hand. The new decorative mirror illustrates how refined the handiwork is that comes out of India.
With gorgeously rich surface details, the Dorian Rectangular Mirror is clad in oak veneers that are laser cut and laid in place like pieces being fitted into a jigsaw puzzle. The frame of diamond box patterns are flanked by black racing stripes to add depth to the piece. The fact that each element is cut and hand-applied makes this an artisanal statement, and the wood mirror's beveled edges add character to the creation. This lovely mirror was designed by Aimee Kurzner. We also offer the Dorian as a floor mirror.
The Diza Round Black Mirror has a profile that is just as interesting from the side as it is from the front. This is because the wood pieces, which taper and are fitted in by hand, splay outward on both the exterior and the interior of the black mirror. The depth this creates will make the new decorative mirror a commanding element in a space. Both the very subtle crackle effect created by the woodgrain and the shape are textural details.
A composition of natural horn, the Hyson Large Square Mirror spotlights the detailing required to make pieces of an elemental material appear seamless. Outlined in Sheesham wood, this tan mirror is such an artisanal piece because the horn is hand-chiseled for an uptick in texture before it is inlaid to the wooden frame. The tonal striations that result from the horn's natural attributes make each mirror unique.
The Arvi Round Mirror has a winning personality thanks to the dynamic mix of ivory bone and black composite that form an interlaced patter. While the black pieces that narrow to a refined point are smooth, the bone sections have been carved in convex rows. The edges of the frame are also carved in larger convex shapes to add interest to the profile of the black and beige mirror.
The Agave Round White Mirror was inspired by the flourishing plant of the same name, whose spiky, leathery fronds curl up from the ground. We've captured this sense of movement in the flowing spikes on this white mirror. “My love of the Agave plant, of which hundreds of varieties flourish in the peninsula, has inspired me for many years,” says the mirror’s designer Marjorie Skouras. Her passion for the Yucatan Peninsula, the surroundings in which she lives and through which she translates the flora and fauna into dynamic products in her studio, shines in this steel mirror covered in a crisp gesso white finish.
For spaces that will welcome bold geometric patterns, the Gentry Rectangular Mirror will be right at home. The shapes that make up the pattern are fashioned from three different types of marble: Ambaji, Marquina, and Pietra Gray. Bringing a hint of brightness to the composition is the brass inlay that intersects on some edges where the marble pieces meet; the fact that they do so in a random composition adds interest to the black and white mirror. The inside edge of the frame where it intersects with the glass is black. There are two cleats on the mirror so it can be hung vertically or horizontally.
The Diza Round Whitewash Mirror has a profile that is just as interesting from the side as it is from the front. This is because the wood pieces, which taper and are fitted in by hand, splay outward on both the exterior and the interior of the white mirror. The depth this creates will make the new decorative mirror a commanding element in a space. Both the woodgrain that shows through in spots and the shape are textural details.
Through the Looking Glass
The Currey & Company Arvi Mirror shown in this setting is one of the new decorative mirrors for Spring 2023.
We’re only a few weeks away from Memorial Day—my how fast time passes—and summer will officially begin! We hope everyone in our dynamic industry is enjoying the festivities surrounding graduations and end-of-the-school-year activities like proms and class photos.
