Circular mirrors are having their moment in the spotlight, but round mirrors are a trend that’s not going to go away in a blink of a season. Personally, I love thin minimalist frames in brass or black and the bigger the mirror the better! But there are a lot of options out there and I’ve rounded (sorry) up some of my favourite circular mirrors.
The round antiqued mirror above has a section of gilding using a process known as ‘Verre Eglomisé’. A technique of gilding on the reverse of glass that dates back to the 15th Century. It can be hung as a semi functional mirror or as an interesting alternative to conventional wall art.
I do love the range of mirrors from The White Company. Their circular mirrors are clean, sleek and contemporary and at 101cm in diameter, this one is a real statement piece. Understated and minimal yet this mirror deserves centre stage over your mantelpiece.
Brass has been a popular choice for a few years now and it has well and truly hit the mainstream interior collections. A warmer and less clinical option, brass adds an element of richness and sophistication. The great thing about brass is that it goes with pretty much any colour and so an easy update for any space. Brass circular mirrors look great in the bathroom, bedroom, living room or hallway so an adaptable piece if you decide to move things about in your home!
Simple wooden framed mirrors ooze Scandinavian minimalist interior style. Wooden frames are a warm and natural option for a paired-back modern look. This one below by Tom Raffield uses his signature steam bending technique. The beautiful European oak frame of this mirror mimics the twisted appearance of a leather strap.
Copper and rose gold are still going strong in interiors as well as fashion. A fresh and feminine option which looks fab against crisp white walls or tiles. The hanging chain gives a retro feel to this contemporary circular mirror.
Oliver Bonas are really embracing the mixed metallics trend at the moment with their Tre circular mirrors. Available in two sizes, they look fab as a pair and individually. This statement circular mirror takes inspiration from marquetry and combines contrasting tones of clear, rose gold and grey tinted mirror for a geometric design. The second mirror offering from Oliver Bonas is the fab fringed boho circular mirrors. Grey and pink-toned yarn is grouped in a straight row, falling from the bottom edge of this these circular mirrors. Crafted with wood and glass, they blend the cool feel of the reflective surface with the smooth texture of shimmering fabric for a contrasting look.
The Adnet Mirror below was designed by Jacques Adnet in 1954 in association with Hermes, the Adnet was reissued to original specification by Gubi in 2011. Inspired by equestrian tack the mirror is encircled in a heavy tan or black leather ring to which a hanging strap, whose length is equal to the diameter of the mirror, is attached via brass buckles.
Starburst mirrors like these two below are serious statement pieces for the maximalists out there. The key to styling these gold starburst mirrors, is to hang them against a dark wall. This gives them more impact and an eclectic vibe rather than a chintzy dated look.
