Lighting has been big in recent years, with designers using new technology and materials to create uniquely-designed lamps, chandeliers, and sconces that are endlessly creative and beautifully sculptural. Now it seems like mirrors are following suit, as designers experiment with new methods and shapes to make interesting and reflective decor that straddles the line between art and function. Here are some recent favorites that put beauty in the mundane.
