Put Antique Mirror On It

Antique Mirror furniture has been hot for a few years now, and its appeal is hard to ignore. Mirrored furniture brightens up dark corners in ways that nothing else can. It adds a touch of old glamor instantly and it feels powerfully feminine. With one piece, luxury and power can be interjected into any room. It will be a trend we will continue to see for a while longer because of the flexibility these pieces can provide.

You can take lots of ordinary pieces of furniture, places and elevate them by adding this mirror to them. Sure, there are plenty of lovely elaborate and elegant pieces of mirrored furniture out there. But if you want to give a piece extra life and repurpose it, adding this mirror is an extremely easy way to do it.

Antique mirrors are mirrors that look aged or distressed by years of use and exposure. While you still occasionally find a mirror that comes by this effect naturally, more commonly it’s been achieved intentionally to achieve a soft, cloudy pattern. Bear Glass  Antique Mirror achieves this effect as a first-quality product, that has the look of a vintage mirror with all the advantages of a modern mirror: The Opaque backing paint that protects the metal layers during transport and installation

Modern silvering technology for a durable, predictable reflection. The effect of these Mirrors by Bear Glass are a wonderful tool in interior environments. The reflection of mirror creates excitement and intimacy while opening u space visually. Hotels, restaurants, bars, and homes can all benefit from the instant mood a vintage mirrors can provide. In the example below, antique mirror seems perfectly at home paired with the exposed wood and brick in a rustic restaurant and bar:

This stately dining room uses a vintage mirror to lengthen the room, but the bronze tint to the glass itself helps prevent visual confusion and warms the space to make it feel more intimate and appealing.

One thing the below lobby did not need more of was more wood paneling. Using decorative mirror glass panels is a welcome addition to the textural elements within the space. The reflection of the vintage mirror is always changing depending on the visitors that day.

A regular wall of mirror in this casual restaurant would have felt too crisp, …not to mention a little optically confusing. The antique mirror surface adds a more relaxed feel to the room and prevents patrons from walking into it. This is where the unique feature of Dreamwalls Antique Mirror’s large size capability is so important.

Mirrored Glass Furniture

The average mirror is a sheet of glass that is coated on its back with aluminum or silver that produces images by reflection. Mirrored furniture became en vogue in the thirties, the era of art deco. Bear Glass recommends using no more than one or two pieces in each room. This way the mirrored furniture can obtain the attention it deserves with out overdoing it. Mirrored furniture can make an entire room appear more spacious. It is vital that the mirrored furniture is placed in a position where it can reflect natural or artificial light. The light that is reflected can brighten the surrounding. Tall cupboards can also make the ceilings appear higher. Mirrored furniture is ideal for any room where you want to add sparkle and create the illusion of a larger space. Reflective surfaces shoot light around the room and create an intimate feel to bedrooms, hallways, bathrooms and living rooms.  Mirrors can be used for edging upholstered chairs and bed frames or  to cover chandeliers and other light fixtures. Have fun introducing mirrored furniture where glam, sparkle and height are needed.

Mirrored furniture can come in an array of  shapes and sizes. Common Mirrored furniture items include:

  • Armoires
  • Cabinets
  • Chests
  • Changing tables
  • Coffee tables
  • Console tables
  • Desks
  • Dinning tables
