Antiqued mirror is having a moment, as timeless as it is. I’m seeing antiqued mirror crop up everywhere from antiqued wall mirrors, to antiqued mirror sideboards and, a personal favourite, antiqued mirror tiles & splashbacks.
With all the benefits of regular mirror, antiqued mirror offers an unexpected vintage charm, often finding home in the most contemporary of furniture and interiors. Unrivalled for soft, sophisticated luxury, antiqued mirror provides for a subtle aged effect with all the modern day glamour that a distressed aesthetic promises.
Subtle and unexpected hints of antiqued mirror can be just as arresting as larger expanses; my Eloise Side Table is the perfect example, pairing the allure of both silver leaf and oxidized mirror in enviable style.
The effect the natural variances provide ensures that no two pieces of antiqued mirror are entirely the same, allowing the finish an almost exclusive uniqueness; possibly my favourite characteristic, the unique mottled façade suggests both intrigue and a nostalgic romance.
Reimagining the humble wall mirror, my Datt Mirror is certainly the piece to add luxurious flair with antiqued mirror's edge. My Antique Octagon Mirror is no different, providing a point of difference on the quintessential round mirror.
Sitting a-top the classical base of the Oly San Francisco’s Tony Side Table, antiqued mirror takes a somewhat unconventional station for a bathroom mirror, as seen in a back issue of Elle Décor, circa 2010. The subtle surface detail brings old and new elements together seamlessly & allows for limitless interior applications. Undeniably chic, the application of antiqued mirror, en masse or as a subtle detail, has an outcome as one of beauty, and mysterious allure.
