Mirrors don’t just look pretty, they are hardworking pieces in interior design. They bring depth to a room, make a space look bigger, brighten, add dimension, and when placed correctly can emphasize views of art or adjacent walls. In some instances, the mirrors themselves become center stage and take on the role of both reflecting and artwork.

Group them together for interesting effects. We love how the ornate gold mirror is sandwiched between the plain, clean lines of the of the other two.
Designer Kevin Isbell used a 19th-century sorcerer’s mirror to camouflage a doorway and create the illusion of a solid wall.

We love how this mirror is suspended from the ceiling.
