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

Vladimir or Pallet Mirror

Holy cow, I love this mirror. Shipping pallets are not usually considered beautiful, but man, if you custom fabricate them into a mirror frame with some old Victorian flair, it certainly becomes an amazing piece.

Millions of pallets are used everyday to move goods across the world. Many times, these pallets come from exotic locations and are made from native exotic woods. But through shipping and clumsy handling, many of these pallets are damaged. A lot of the time they are simply discarded after use. These beautiful samples of another world typically turn into landfill or mulch.

This mirror was made using two partially destroyed shipping pallets. The scars on the lumber tell a story of its travels. While the form is reminiscent of old Victorian french mirrors, its origin is far from gold leaf.

design and prototype: Karl Zahn

Diamond Mirror

If you’re serious about your reflection, you’ll be impressed with this mirror and its 16 facets cut and polished by hand.

Most glass and mirror produced today are filled with mineral impurities, namely iron, which cause a deep green tint. While most noticeable on its edge it’s also visible on the entire face of the glass causing the reflection of your skin, your hair, your walls and everything around you to have a slightly greenish muddy tinit. The Diamond Mirror is made from laboratory quality glass of the highest optical clarity and backed with an impossibly thin layer of pure silver. Unobscured by mineral impurities within the glass the Diamond Mirror provides more light transmission which in turn results in a reflection that is actually brighter, clearer and more vivid. Often referred to as optically white, the Diamond Mirror quite literally reflects your true colors.

AQHayon Mirror

This mirror is simply striking with its laser-cut decorative edges. It’ll set you back a fair bit though, ’cause it’s a show stopper.

A final touch to the AQHayon series of bathroom furniture, this laser-cut mirror adds just the right amount of decorative detail to complete the look of perfect elegance and sophistication. Available in stainless steel in three different sizes or in either a black or white silkscreen version, there is a distinct possibility that this mirror may just find its way out of the bathroom and into another room in need of some character.

TranSglass Mirrors

Goodness gracious, these mirrors are pretty impressive (and maybe the dog’s head one is a little scary). While they might be pricey, they’d sure make a statement in whatever room you them in.

Mirave & Miru Mirror

These mirrors seem to be pretty special- take a look at the incredible texture and materials. Christian Astuguevieille (pronounced ah-stewg-v’YAY) designed them especially for CoutureLab and after googling him and glimpsing just a tiny peek at his abode and various art objects, I can understand the mystique and appeal surrounding the man behind the name. Also, check out his crazy rope chair, called Moisart…not for the timid decorator/designer/collector.

Mirave Mirror:

The bunched, synthetic lavender of this mirror is dipped in black acrylic paint creating a dense textured frame to the convex glass. The frame is backed in black wood and signed by the artist…Characteristics between individual pieces may vary as each mirror is handmade.

Size: Small 22 x 22 cm
$3,000 approx, Buy it here.

Mirol Mirror:

The domes and spheres which frame this mirror are constructed from braided cotton, the same material that is used to make synthetic flowers. The back of the mirror is lined with muslin and marked with the Christian Astuguevieille atelier stamp…Characteristics between individual pieces may vary as each mirror is handmade.

Rectangular mirror mounted with a saffron red braided cotton frame

Combining the standard mirror with pegs and hooks is not a bad idea, though there’s the risk you’d lose the nice design features by covering it up all the time with coats and jackets.
