Think Outside The Square

The best selection of shaped mirrors

Arched - Round - Oval - Shaped | Curved Corners - Capsule Shaped

When it comes to styling an interior space many are choosing to breakaway from the traditional rectangular look. Contemporary homes and commercial space designs tend to be minimalist, with simple lines.

As can be seen in the reflection in the Hepburn mirror above the walls, skirting boards, framed pictures and even the flooring is made up of rectangles.

In order to break away from the uniformity of the simple rectangle shell, many home stylists place a shaped mirror as a "hero piece" to add character and a reflection of the days gone by when intricate detail was the norm.

The Trefoil mirror above is a more simplistic style but has a reflection of old world charm. If you check the frame finish you might be taken back to the days of an Imperial Ottoman Harem.

The Bjorn Arched-top floor standing mirror epitomizes today's contemporary designs but "softens" the harsh architectural angles with its curved top


The trend began a few years ago with the simple Modern Circular Mirror and soon progressed into the Bjorn selection of Oval and Round frames. The challenge has been the fact you can't "bend a frame" without sophisticated equipment and realistically if the production run isn't of sufficient quantity the price escalates.

On the other side of the coin too cheap can get pretty nasty. We source products we think hit the mark stylistically that are reasonably priced but don't compromise on quality.

"The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten." Benjamin Franklin.

Curvaceous in the Bathroom

Bathroom trends dictate a more sophisticated fittings and accessories for the bathroom. Again we find curved and shaped mirrors help ease the domination of the square and rectangular shapes (like the tiles) in the bathroom.

In the bathroom above a light white frame allows the other colours in the tiles and fittings to have their say while the subtlety of the white arched top frame above the basin brings a harmony to the angular design in the tiles.

The Scandi natural wood frame brings a serenity into the bathroom below, as does the beautiful floral arrangement.
