Fold Mirror

You might think a mirror is just a mirror, but that would be underestimating how much a small tweak can change a rather ordinary item. Marie Thurnauer has bent the Fold Mirror slightly away from the wall to give different views and angles of a room. The image above (from domus) with the Fold Mirrors en masse shows their potential dynamicity, and has me, at least, thinking about ordering at least three.

Mirror #180

Need a mirror? Consider this one with two mirror halves spliced and bent to give you different perspectives. There are three positions to consider, so you’ll have fun figuring out which angle catches the best light or spot in the room. Could be a clever choice for a powder room or other small spaces.

Flip Mirror

Oh, here’s a good idea- let’s compare the state of our bathroom countertops. Are yours organized, clean, and perfect? Mine are clean, but they’re certainly not organized and perfect. Do you have a table mirror to trim any unwanted head or facial hair, or apply your more detailed makeup wizardry? I do, but it’s not as nice as this one. Inspired by a rear-view mirror, Javier Moreno designed this mirror to swivel up, down, and rotate 360 degrees. And, thankfully, there’s a nice catch-all tray at its base to corral your smaller items.

Mirror Shelf

It’s just a mirror with a small shelf for keys and other small things, yet its slight angular design and assembly are noteworthy for their stylish simplicity. Also, if you visit Golden Biscotti’s site, do check out the natural straws and round cushion.

Mira Mirror

Usually any wood-frame mirror with a leather hanging strap commands a higher price than $300, so that’s why you’re seeing the Mira Mirror (Mira Mirra, one is tempted to pronounce) right now. Keep in mind the three available dimensions are on the small size, perfect for a powder room or petite entryway area. There’s also a rectangular version, Mira-D, for $250.

Bound Hand V1

$400 is a whole lot of money for a hand mirror. That said, if you’re super picky about every item that you use, and care about surrounding yourself only with beautiful, useful things, you’re not going to make do with a cheap plastic mirror from your local drugstore, are you? This mirror from Grain features hand-wrapped hemp twine edging for artistic detail and to secure the mirror to its wood backing. There’s also the Bound Hand V2 ($330) which features a hand-wrapped handle only.

Francis Mirrors by Petite Friture

Just. Gorgeous. The Francis Mirrors by Petite Friture are a colorful re-interpretation of the vintage/distressed mirror.

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.
