They make the room look bigger. They add a new layer of complexity and dimension. They are beautiful objects. And (mixed blessing here) you can see your entire body head-to-toe reflected back in them (gasp!). What's not to love about big and tall floor mirrors?
• 1 The mirror in this room, designed by Brooklyn design team at Nightwood, was distressed by hand. It goes so well with the rest of the refurbished furniture. New York Times
• 2 A Mad Tea Party With Alis. I can't get over how stunning this mirror is. I have never seen anything like it. It looks like something out of an old hospital or clinic. And beyond how cool it looks, how great (if alarming) would it be to have a stylish three-way mirror for trying on clothes?
• 3 Automatism. Perhaps my favorite of the bunch, I just love this gorgeous floor mirror, with its delicate frame and elegant curved top.
• 4 Skona Hem. This look is popular these days--a large floor mirror leaning against the wall.
• 5 Inspired Design. This ornate theatrical and enormous mirror is a dramatic antidote to the decidedly modern tables and chairs.
• 6 This is Glamorous. Here, a groovy masculine modern sofa sits in front of a very intricately carved and impossibly tall and thin antique mirror. A great contrast!
• 7 Minted Life. A chunky oversized mirror made from repurposed salvaged wood.
