Magnifying Glass Decor

Magnifying Glass Decor

Mid-century modern's stronghold may reign over the design world for years to come, but there is always room for some good old fashioned nostalgic decor. Magnifying glasses are a favorite of late. Grouped together or standing alone, they create an interesting focal point in any style room.

Most recently we spotted a collection grouped in a gorgeous display in Gloria de Lourdes Blalock's living room at the Washington Design Center's Spring Design House. The clusters of magnifying glasses dispersed between the shelves unified other disparate items.

Anthropologie sells a range of sizes. We love browsing the ever-changing arrangements that their creative team of stylists put together in their stores around the area.

We also dig the simple design of Mothology's take on the standard magniyfying glass.

We can't decide which version we like better, what about you?
