I think this would be perfect for above an entryway console (not to mention completely practical if you happen to live in London).

Recycled Magazine Mirror

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

“Large round mirror covered with coils of recycled magazine pagers. Rolled into coils, the pieces of paper are attached to the mirror’s frame and then sealed for durability and shine. Finished with embedded hook at the back for hanging. Imported. Wipe clean.”

Paper, glass. Hardware for hanging not included

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.’

*aprox. 6.5″ wide x 14.5″ high and 1/8″ thick

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.”

Razorblade Mirror

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.

Atelier Lzc Oval Mirror Houx

Yep, it’s decorative, leaning towards folksy, and it has flowers to boot, but I still think it’s such a find. I think it would contrast quite nicely with modern furniture, pulling out those qualities which become more prominent when put beside their polar opposite (an “eclectic” mix).

Hand screenprinted.

McLeod Mirror Series 1

Recently I was visiting the McLeod Residence Gallery in Seattle and had an opportunity to see the piece “McLeod Mirror Series 1: See Yourself in Others, 2007″ by the The Barbarian Group (Boston, MA), where your reflection is made up of tiny blocks of color which are actually the images of people who came before you.

You can read more about it here or you can see my ultra fancy camera work here (not recommended).

Atlanta Mirror

Recently my entry hall got an update with a new floor mirror, and I can honestly say it makes coming home a nicer experience. It opens up the space, which is really nice in smaller areas.

“Oversized mirrors such as the Atlanta Mirror (2003) by Michael Ogura have become affordable, modern-day solutions to many an interior dilemma. With its full-size reflective surface, the Atlanta effectively makes spaces look larger and brighter. The hand brushed stainless steel frame is corrosion resistant and solidly built to lean safely against the wall.”

16- and 20-gauge brushed stainless steel; 3/16″ glass mirror; 3M VHB adhesive.

Convex Mirror bySebastian Wrong, 2004

I was just in Seattle this weekend and was reminded of how cool this mirror was when I saw it in one of the shops down town. (The store is called Ornamo, but they don’t have an online store–but do stop by if you’re in the area.)

The mirror is large in scale (35h x 12w x 10″d) and generally just really cool. It’s on sale now at Moma.

“Bring this nearly three-foot high version of the familiar rearview car mirror indoors. Wall mount and adjust by rotating 360 degrees, lowering or angling towards the wall to display your desired reflection. Made of a black injection-molded ABS frame with glass and anodized aluminum.”
