Mirrors for Every Room of the House

Sleek and chic, mirrors reflect light, deliver dimension and are meant for hanging with wild abandon

Drama Queen
For the bold-minded, Ikea’s ornate oval Ung Drill mirror (above), $39.99, features a black, upscale antique-inspired style without the upscale antique price tag. We say, swap the basic over-the-sink mirror and make a statement with this in your master bath. 601 SW 41st St., Renton; 888.888.4532; ikea.com

Flower, Flower on the Wall
Where to place a sparkler like Jonathan Adler’s Petal mirror? Only prime spots qualify. Polished brass petals are filled with thin bits of pearly abalone, making for a shimmering décor star that, when placed in an entryway, is sure to wow even the most blasé visitor. $1,150. 2650 NE Village Lane; 206.525.0930; jonathanadler.com

Shining Charmer
We’re mad for the unusual, shield-like shape of Lancelot, $199, a contemporary mirror, available from the Ballard-based interior design firm Pulp Design Studios, that features four rows of beaded accents, all finished in a glinting silver leaf. Pop it over a jazzy printed wallpaper in the powder room for high style in spades. pulphome.com  Lancelot: Kevin Dotolo

Bark and Recreation
Rustic-décor lovers, take note: This circular cherry bark number from SoDo’s Rejuvenation, $159.99 online, has a Japanese cherry-bark-wrapped frame that awes with its natural grain and texture—no two are alike. Make this mirror a focal point and fill the space above your fireplace, or opt for a perch on a prominent shelf in the living room. 2910 First Ave. S; 206.382.1901; rejuvenation.com

Triple Threat

Sure, they’re sold individually, but it’s hard to invest in just one of these eye-catching Nikita mirrors, $645 each, when their continuous interlocking circle design practically insists that they be hung in threes. Try grouping them above a simple wooden sideboard in a dining room. Available in either a gold- or silver-leaf finish at Madison Valley’s Maison Luxe. 2828 E Madison St.; 206.405.2888; maisonluxe.net  

Open and Shut Case
Created by Italian industrial designer Gino Carollo for contemporary French furniture retailer Ligne Roset, the asymmetrical Adonis mirror, $1,570, mounts to the wall and has two panels of different widths, which can either swing open to reveal the mirror’s triptych style, or, for non-Narcissus-inspired moments, swing closed to highlight the mirror’s American walnut wood backing. Its height and breadth also bring dimension and brightness to smaller rooms and hallways. 112 Westlake Ave. N; 206.341.9990; ligne-roset-usa.com

Low Profile
Room & Board’s Infinity has a slim steel box frame that draws attention to the mirror’s beveled edge. It comes in three sizes (shown is the 36-inch square version; rectangular and round styles also available) and oodles of colors, but we think this poppy orange hue brings a brightness to bedroom walls without being overbearing. $399 in stainless finish, $449 in color. 2675 NE University Village St.; 206.336.4676; roomandboard.com
