Francis Mirrors by Petite Friture

Just. Gorgeous. The Francis Mirrors by Petite Friture are a colorful re-interpretation of the vintage/distressed mirror. The worn-off reflective backing of such mirrors that would normally show through are filled in with chromatic pigments, taking on a water-color effect. Available in both wall and pocket size, in two colors.

Strap Mirror from Hay

Well, hello, hello. This is like a Captain’s mirror from the future. With a silicone strap and powder coated steel, it’s got the modern materials to banish any antique store stuffiness. And, hey, the price isn’t too shabby either, especially considering some Captain’s mirrors go for around the $2 G mark (like BDDW’s that starts at $1600).

Also, if you like the more traditional Captain’s mirrors, I did some searching and found a couple of leather ones within the $400-600 price range:

16″ dia: $375 at Empiric Studio
26″ dia: $625 at Empiric Studio
17″ dia: $375 at Maison Luxe (via Remodelista)

Blackened Metal Mirror by West Elm

I’ve been pretty impressed with the quality of designs coming out of West Elm lately. I’m haven’t been the hugest champion of their case goods, but I think their accessories have been spot-on.

These mirrors have a refined blackened frame, and would be perfect in an entry, above a fireplace or above a dresser. The round one (above) is 30″ diameter and $149, while the small rectangular one is 36″ x 24″ and $129. The large one (not shown) is $349, and is not one solid mirror but features smaller mirror tiles.

Reflect Mirror

Just think of how many corners and spaces this little guy could go. Mirrors are always an excellent way to reflect light around a space, making it seem bigger and brighter. Imagine the fun of putting several of these in a dark hallway or corner and seeing the light bounce around in unexpected ways.

The reflect mirror with its 90 degree angle can be used as a tray to place your keys, sun glasses, jewelries, coins etc so that you won’t forget to take them with you after checking yourself out in the mirror. For men, the angeled portion of the mirror allows you to see below your chin when shaving, which can come in handy as well. Also, with a total of 8 holes on the rear of each mirror, reflect mirror can be placed almost anywhere on the wall, including corners.

W9.6″ x L4.9″ x H12.0″
Available in black, white and gold.

Clipboard Mirror

This might be a handy thing to have by the front door for last minute appearance checks and memos. (It would be perfect for attaching mail/netflix/ilovefilm so you don’t forget to mail them out.)

…it has all the practicality of a standard clipboard with an added touch of design quirkiness, that will compliment both the home and office. Keep everything attached to this, from memos to mail, and it’ll certainly catch your attention.

Blu Dot Hang 1 Mirror

This mirror is about us unadorned as you can get. Simple mirror hangs on a walnut peg. Measures 24″ x 24″. I think this would look amazing over a single wash basin in the bath.

Hmm. Does anyone else find the android-like form in these photos unsettling? Coupled with the ‘Love me’ and the fingerprint, it brings to mind AI or something equally disturbing.

Natural Vases and Oval Jericho Mirror

The Jericho Mirror is a little creepy, and maybe that’s what makes it weird and interesting. The vases are simply lovely. (They’re from the same retailer, so that’s why they’re pictured together, plus my bookmarks folder is busting at the seams.)

Natural Vases, $75.00, Buy it here.

Our Natural Vases utilize the unique shape and grain of monkey pod wood to produce a stunning effect. Their crooked silhouette is an excellent means of displaying a flower or simple arrangement. Hand-carved and finished with natural wax to enhance to grain.
20″ H (approx.) Bases range from 5″ to 8″ width
