The Romance of Mirrored Furniture ...

When you see that kind of a sale tag ... on such a piece of furniture ... that looks ... that gorgeous ... sitting here.... all I can feel is Ahhh! ... 'wrong time -wrong place' ... and then I wish Horchow would some day start deliveries in India that didn't ... make you think you'd rather save and plan a trip to moon ...

... in the meanwhile I 'll just tell you all about the romance of the mirrored furniture ... I am anyday the biggest preacher of using mirrors in interiors ... so if I had to tell you about the mirror on furniture ... I'd have to start with ... you can't imagine the beauty until you get yourself one ... unless ofcourse you just believe me :) ....

... and if we are talking mirrors ... we are sure talking about a style statement ... how that works for you is ... well ! very personal ... you either like it or you don't ... and if you happen to love it, or could be open to what all this talk is about ... then do come along , as I talk ... and talk ... about these stunning pieces that you'll never miss no matter where ...


We all know ... all about what mirrors can do to your space ... open them up .... make them look big ... when I look at this picture above ... I 'm pretty sure you couldn't agree any less . I really do admire the way the distressed mirror screen continues with that feeling of ... 'don't know where the room begins and where it ends' ...

Besides feeling ...ah! Hollywood ... (in the lovely romantic way)I can't think of how light and open the space feels with the mirrored back panelling and the side board ...



Here's ton loads of pictures that I love going through and it just might help you about that certain piece you were always looking for in your home ...

... or were you undecided about what it feels like to have a mirrored piece as part of your collection ...













If you have decided that the old and oh! so drab cabinet that you thought you needed to junk ... can suddenly be absolutely ... the uber cool ... piece you own and all you got to do is ... some mirror panelling ... Or have you been struck by some even bigger lightning bolt ... do share with me all about it ... I would love to hear back from you ... :)

Hi Rajee,

It is so nice to see that your back after Diwali.

These images are all so gorgeous, I love mirrored furniture. Andrew often has to distress mirrors for different decorators and they come up beautifully. I love them and there is a real art to distressing mirrors to look old without taking too much of the mirror plate off.

I look forward to hopefully seeing some of you celebration images.

xx Coty

Great round-up of mirrored furniture! I had been oohing and aahing over Horchow but ended up finding the Lingerie Chest on ebay for much less. I still want more mirrored pieces, but sadly my husband is not as big of a fan as I. ;-)

Rekha said...

Lovely post Rajee, they look fascinating. My concern is the maintenance part :) it take so much effort keeping these gorgeous pieces spotless.

Lovin' the mirrored pieces. I'm told that mirrored pieces drive the feng shui people nutty. Just a fun FYUI.

Hi Praji,
Your niceroonie got me all excited on the rebound ... real glad you enjoyed this post... :)

Hi Coty,
Diwali was lovely ... I don't really have much to show for images this year ... there was loads of outdoor fun rather than just indoors ... and with a kid running around fireworks ... the camera and I couldn't have too much time with each other as I'd have loved to ...
Coty, you got me all excited about what you do at your husbands workshop ... you are hearing from me real soon on that front ... :)
Thanks for dropping by Coty ... its exciting as hell getting to hear from you... :)

Hi Ishmi,
Lady!... lovely words ... thankyou so much ... :)

Rajee Sood said...

Hi Sakala,
Thanks for the telling me about Fluer ... I did see her website and the table you mention ... wow she sure has an enviable load of projects under her wing ... :)

Rajee Sood said...

Hi Blog Author(s),
I am not completely sure if that is true ... fengshui ... does use mirrors in many ways ... its all about being right by the principles of what ever it may be that we choose to follow ... whether its Fengshui or Vastu Shastra(here in India) ... and these ancient sciences are far more progressive in their being accomodative than we may be aware of ... :) ... hope that gets you looking at mirrors in a little more ;)
