The Fairest of Them All: Mirrored Furniture

A fabulous piece of mirrored furniture can act like magic in your home décor – it gives the illusion of a bigger, brighter room, while adding hints of glimmer (and who doesn’t want that?!).  It is versatile with styles, effortlessly finding a place in contemporary, glam and vintage, and the shiny surface complements well with other textures like soft textiles, satin woods and clear plexi.

Thanks to the gleam, vibrant accessories pop even more so when they are paired with mirrored furniture, as seen here in this bedroom design by Rachel Reid. If the dresser had been a deep stained oak or even a rustic chic white, the colorful pillows and flowers wouldn’t have had the presence they boast here.

Try pairing mirrored finishings with plexi and Lucite furniture, as seen in this design by Tobi Fairley. “The continual use of plexi and mirrored furniture enables a delightful melding of the surrounding colors that would have otherwise been hindered by the distraction of uncomplimentary materials,” says Fairley. “It’s subtle yet imaginative.”

The mirrored furniture makes this office space, designed by Vanessa DeLeon, go from drab to fab. The brilliant white intensifies as it reflects off of the surfaces, and again, we see it paired with a great Lucite chair.
