Weathered and beautiful shaped design mirrors for an autumn home

Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn! With the sun luckily still peeking behind the clouds some days, I also found myself turning on the stove during the first chilly evenings, a sign autumn really arrived. I personally love this time of the year to create new corners, add a bit of colour I normally don't use, buy branches and take out the extra blankets like most of us. I have to confess that every year I am also tempted to paint the bedroom in a dark autumn colour and with the new dark wooden floor I even might really try to do something new.

Something else I have been completely fascinated by is the idea of adding mirrors to my home. I think the combination of candlelight and mirrors is a golden match, it has something magical to see candlelight reflected in a mirror. I do have an old French mirror myself, high on my wish though are a few darker bronzed and weathered mirrors or a combination with brass, a material that returns in various places in my house.  

Weathered glass has a beautiful industrial look because it has undergone an ageing process. As a result, the glass is no longer completely clear, which gives the mirror the tough and weathered look I love. At imm Belgian Ethnicraft always has a beautiful presentation of their design label, most designs are made of solid wood and include not only furniture but also textiles and decorative objects. It was at the fair I first noticed their collection of beautiful clear and bronze aged mirrors. I selected a few to give you an impression and maybe use in your own home to add a beautiful industrial touch with lots of character for autumn and beyond.

  


Ethnicraft Frameless Mirror

The Ethnicraft Frameless Mirror in the first picture has undergone an ageing process giving it the beautiful dark industrial look I like so much. A sturdy mirror that has an extra industrial look due to the lack of a frame. This mirror has a bronze version and a clear version that has undergone a lighter ageing process. Smaller square sizes are available as wel as the tall floor mirror. I can only dream of a few mirrors like this together in a row.

In my home I don't have that many round shapes and I think a round or irregular shaped mirror could add some softness. The round Ethnicraft bronze mirror is a design by Dawn Sweitzer for Ethnicraft, an American artist and designer who founded Notre Monde back in the seventies, a brand that is now renowned for its luxurious and timeless design collection of mirrors, trays and tables. The glass of the round Bronze Mirror is clouded, the result of the same ageing process. it has wooden edges making the mirror an art and functional object in one.
 


Muuto mirror

Irregular shaped mirrors

If you prefer a cleaner less industrial and more Scandinavian look and still something different then what we were used too an irregular shaped Design mirror is a beautiful alternative! Visiting 3 days of design, I was really impressed by the many mirrors at Muuto's rooftop terrace where mirrors in different shapes and colour gradations were used. Pictured above the Framed mirror in large and small, which comes in three different colours from grey to pink and taupe. 

Anderssen & Voll designed this series of mirrors for Muuto in different versions and sizes and a combination of powder coated material and coloured glass suitable for all rooms. The mirrors can be mounted both horizontally and vertically, or stand alone as a beautiful object, together they can be used to add an artistic design on the wall.

Ferm Living pond spiegel

Ferm Living design the 'Pond' Mirror, featuring two individual mirrors in different sizes. I love how the mirrors are designed to be hung in more ways so you can really present the shapes how you like best. Again there are so many possible combinations to make with these beautiful organic shaped mirrors, the small brass plated zinc frame ads that little touch I love.
