Many American furniture manufacturers offer glass mirrors to match specific furniture collections while others offer mirrors as specific home accents. Glass mirrors are specified here because many are made from reflective aluminum foil - these are generally regarded as being of inferior quality to the genuine glass item although can be just as effective.
The mirror is decoration: In the living room a lot of times the mirror is put above the fireplace and when you think about this there seems to be something decorative about this. It is decorative in the sense that the mirror seems to be the main ornament. It is a central piece of decorative furniture and even though its function is obvious decoration seems to be the main purpose. If the main reason is decorative then you can add to the interior by using other mirrors in a more functional setting and showing up the decorative purpose of the central mirror above the fireplace. Again in this living room setting you can show up the functionality and decorativeness of the mirror object by adding mirrors at foot level along one of the walls.
Another interior design idea is to put a folding mirror in the corner.. a kind of triptych of mirrors which fold inwards... Another idea is to have a mirror on one wall continuing into the other walls; Various effects can be used- e.g. two long rectangular mirrors of equal size at the corners of each wall...or else the mirrors do not have to be the same size at all. The mirror then is decoration and function. What about the mirror as space as something which creates space.
The mirror offered with Homelegance’s Wilmington rage of bedroom furniture is even simpler. Available in a warm cherry finish this mirror stands 47 inches high and 37.5 inches wide. The reflective surface is set in a beautifully simple solid wood frame that would match a wide range of furniture styles.
