I took a look around my home the other day, happy to have put up a few more pieces of artwork over the weekend, and it struck me that nearly everything hanging on the walls has right angles. Suddenly all I could see were the rectangular frames corresponding to the wall edges. I realized that it's high time for some unexpected curves — hopefully in the form of a round mirror.
We've featured several roundups before of glamorous round mirrors in a range of prices (see here and here). A search on eBay comes up with quite a few options, and stores like Pottery Barn, Ballard Designs, CB2, and West Elm have lovely options, as well. A round mirror will introduce some play of light into our sometimes-dim living room, and also break the monotony of so many rectangular frames.
