Mirrors

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

Vertana Mirror

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.

Material(s): Compressed sugi wood

I like how this mirror has all sorts of random colors due to the choice of material.

The Mr. or Thug Life mirrors

Some mornings these would be entirely useful; just think, a quick look at yourself with a moustache or tattooed tears (depending on the day, of course) might give that extra infusion of self-confidence you need (and, how much would this be a mind-numbingly good gift for somebody?).

‘In need of some self-reflection? Designer Julie Ruiz has created this series of one-of-a-kind silk-screened hand mirrors that are sure to give you a whole new outlook. Each signed and dated piece is cut from mirrored Plexiglas in your choice of design: “The Mr.” is SILVER with a handlebar moustache – for those days when you’re feeling less than manly. And for all you softies out there yearning to be hard, try the “Thug Life” – GOLD with tattooed teardrops. Buy one for yourself, and one for your homeys.’

Choe and Tomlinson Death Wish Self Portrait Mirror

“Let’s face it. We are a society obsessed with appearance. And it seems Choe & Tomlinson have caught us fixing our hair in the reflection of the drugstore window one too many times. So they have taken it upon themselves to make our next glimpse in the mirror a bit more humorous. After all, a goofy smile looks great on everybody.

Jeannie Choe and Steven Tomlinson’s Black Death Wish Mirror combines vanity and mortality in a pop Victorian silhouette.”

This might be slightly cooler if there wasn’t a movie on right now with the same character, but either way it’s still a lot more ‘edgy’ than a regular mirror.
