Mirrors and Artwork are often the finishing touch on a well designed space and sometimes they can even be the inspiration for the space in the first place if they have enough personality and presence to do that. Made Goods continue to come out with some pieces that may do just that.
When I first saw Giselle I was fascinated by its complexity but alarmed at the thought of harvesting the fragile and endangered coral reefs. I needn’t have worried. Somehow Made Goods have found a way of recreating the beauty of coral without diving for the real thing. Its available in white or red but I love the red, I love the red, I want the red.
Bolder still in all it’s marine opulence, the Margot, is a mix of seashells and corals sure to create interest anywhere. Remember our blog about all white interiors? That would be the place. This mirror has a 24″ diameter.
The surround of Edur is made from metal coated with matte plaster. The branches each have an individual shape and the overall effect is remarkably organic. Its dimensions are 30″ wide and 38″ high.
Striking a pose is Madena and that’s row after row of matchsticks surrounding the mirror! I wonder if the artist is still in therapy?
This is Blake, presumably not named after Amy Winehouse’s troublesome boyfriend. The finish is reminiscent of tortoise but it is, in fact, Young Pen shell. I particularly like the soft irregular shape of this hand cut mirror. Dimensions 32″ diameter.
So keep mirroring away just keep in mind that design with mirrors requires not only selecting a great frame but it’s all about location, it’s all in the reflection baby!
