Mirror, mirror, on the wall, what mirror shape works for all? Well, since you asked, it’s the round mirror! Most furniture silhouettes are boxy, so a circle is the perfect form to break up all those straight lines. They’re great for entryways, dining rooms, bedrooms and even bathrooms. Here are some of our absolute favorites across a range of budgets:


This mirror is a favorite among style bloggers and decorators alike. The subtle brass frame is just enough glam for any vignette, and the sizable diameter can’t be beat at this price point. Diameter: 27″

Bringing a little something extra to the table (or, er, wall) is this unique sconce-slash-mirror combo that is super chic. Diameter: 18″

It’s likely the combination of the natural rope and the dark metal frame that makes this mirror so striking, but it’s also a piece that transcends style and can find a place in a multitude of interiors. Diameter: 19.5″

Sporting a deep walnut veneer rim and inset glass, this modern mirror adds extra dimension to any wall it adorns. Diameter: 31.5″

Our Previous Lists:


You may feel that this mirror falls more under the category of art than reflector, but we think this stunner can do double duty as both. Diameter: 30″

When you can’t decide between round and rectangular, there’s this mirror from CB2. It’s simple geometric forms come together to create a reflective work of art. Diameter: 32″

Reflective from all angles (even its frame), this vintage-inspired mirror adds clean lines and lightness to any space. Diameter: 22.5″

Other Good Resources:


Almost tray-like due to its double frame, this coastal-chic rattan mirror serves up a little something extra. Diameter: 28.5″

Showing off an iridescent array of colors, this Patricia Urquiola-designed mirror changes its sheen as you cross its path. Diameter: 24″

The slight lip on this brass beauty casts interesting reflections, but that doesn’t hold a candle to the shadows created by its 4-inch protrusion from the wall. Diameter: 16″
