Mirrors serve the obvious purpose in our homes ~ various times throughout the day, we need them to check out our reflection. But an over-sized framed mirror is also quite a magical design feature & makes a statement in any room. A large mirror is an excellent focal point, visually expands the space & makes it brighter as it bounces the light around. It can also add depth to a space.
Retailer, Room & Board, offers 3 styles of mirrors that can be custom sized right down to the inch ~
Perfect with any decor, the Marsilia Mirror from Ballard Designs ~
Add great detail with the Eagan Multipanel Large Mirror from Pottery Barn ~
For the modernist, the Luciano Bertoncini Extra Large Mirror at Bonluxat ~
For your favorite girly tween, the Lilac Floor Mirror from PB Teen ~
Simple & very well-priced is the Porter Leaner Mirror from World Market ~
The Metal Floor Mirror from West Elm ~
There are several amazing ~ albeit pricey ~ floor mirrors from Restoration Hardware. If you haven’t been in Restoration Hardware in a while, its offerings have changed a lot ~ I was in our local store in Southpark this past weekend & the vibe is totally different from the days where knobs, paint & trinkets adorned the store.
Available in 55×96 & 64×106 inch sizes ~
Avaliable size is 41″x83″ ~
Available size is 54″x85″ ~
