  1. Gleaming Primrose Mirror at Antrhopologie, Starting at $398
    A traditionally-styled mirror that would also work well as an unexpected accent in a modern room.
  2. Nicola Mirror at Neiman Marcus, $374.25
    A lovely wall mirror in the Venetian style, perfect for adding a little shine to your traditional interior.
  3. Hoop Mirror at Anthropologie, $248
    A classic shape that will work practically anywhere.
  4. Caracole Millet Dressing Mirror at Neiman Marcus, $619
    A bit Art Deco — does that count as traditional? Either way, I’m very taken with the styling of this oval wall mirror.
  5. Plaza Arch Mirror at Neiman Marcus, $337.50
    “Put a bird on it” has become something of a cliche — but I think you’ll agree that this woodland-style mirror would not be quite the same without the avian accents.

  1. Francis Grand Wall Mirror at Petite Friture, 398€
    A beautifully simple shape, with a lovely and unexpected burst of color. Also available in a smaller size here.
  2. Cage Mirror at TRNK, $108
    The cage design makes this one stand off the wall a bit, and gives it an intriguing depth.
  3. Calli Mirror at Urban Outfitters, $129.99
    A round, frameless mirror that’s very simple, and very on-trend.
  4. Black and Green Pyramid Shape Mirror at Beam, $1,450
    Part of a whole series of mirrors by Bower, all in interesting 2D/3D shapes.
  5. Seeing Glass Big Round Mirror at Matter, $3,660
    It’s pricey, for sure. But this mirror is big. Really, really big — almost four feet. If you can swing it, this would be a statement making piece for sure.

  1. Auberon Mirror at Ballard Designs, $429
    The bohemian style is all about unexpected moments, and this dramatic peacock feather answers that call.
  2. A-Framed Mirror at Mvng Mtns, Price Upon Request
    Pricey, almost certainly (my mother taught me to fear the price tags that you have to ask about), but definitely a fascinating piece, big enough to make the whole room. You can see it in action here.
  3. Triangle Mirrors at Marvin Freitas, Starting at $75
    These triangle mirrors are available in four sizes, and would look great on their own or grouped together. Spotted on Artnau.
  4. Hexagon Mirror at Fine Little Day, €167
    Great on its own, or as a grouping that covers an entire wall.
  5. Cru Large Mirror, Aged Gold at High Fashion Home, $339
    The shape is so simple, but the spiky edge detail definitely makes this mirror.

Birds of Paradise Mirror at Codor Design, Price Upon Request (Image credit: Codor Design)


  1. Birds of Paradise Mirror at Codor Design, Price Upon Request
    The description calls this “as much a sculpture as it is a mirror,” and I couldn’t agree more. Definitely something you’ll want to look at, and not just in, for a long time.
  2. Zuo Cellular Mirror at Target, $437.99
    Very ’70s. Very Verner Panton. I approve.
  3. Diamond Chain Mirror at Urban Outfitters, $129
    Speaking of the ’70s… there’s something distinctly groovy about this diamond-shaped amber mirror.
  4. Color-Washed Circle Mirror at Anthropologie, $1,098
    I love the variegated appearance of this mirror — a little bit old school, a little bit art piece — and the round shape is very on trend. Plus, at nearly three feet wide, it’s big enough to be the focal point for an entire room.
  5. Stud Mirror at Sho Modern, $555
    We’re all a little obsessed with this unusually styled mirror, whose horsehair border gives it a touch of unexpected texture.
