Finest Wall Mirrors from Italy
Detailed, stately and refined, any wall mirror from our
decorative mirrors collection will give a room an undeniably regal air of
quality and self-assurance. Since the 14th century wall mirrors have been used
as functional and decorative objects. With the refinement of hand carved wood,
gilding, leaf and floral designs, our wall mirrors are more than furnishings -
our decorative wall mirrors are testimony to your good taste. All our decorative
mirrors are grandly proportioned exquisitely detailed and luxuriously
hand-crafted to truly uncompromising standards for an effect that is impressive.
Mirror is a unique and fascinating object. Wall mirrors not just reflect, but transforming
reality, creating an illusions, adding mystery, accentuating beauty.
Mirrors in our homes are usual objects. In a front of the mirrors we are fixing
ourselves in the morning, glancing in the mirrors while living the home, we are
using reflective qualities of the mirrors as part of the daily routines, often,
without realizing importance of the mirrors in our interiors. You can think of
mirrors as they an extension of your home, after all, mirrors known for they
qualities to visually expend existing space, and, by reflecting light, mirrors
softly illuminate space.
The process of choosing style, shape, size, and frame finishes of the mirrors
should be taking seriously. While choosing mirrors you always should keep in
mind how a specific mirror will affect an overall filling of your space
and what kind of the visual affect is desired. For example, a long oval vertical
mirrors (like on Italian style cheval mirror
or Adam style mirror) visually extending height of the
room, while similar horizontal mirrors will make the space appear wider.
Decorative mirrors are more purely about style and less about
function than almost any other object in a room. Regarding style and function,
it is not that one is more important than the other. It's more that one makes
the other more significant. But it is curious that wall mirrors are one of the few
decorative items with no obvious esthetic value,
but if mirrors have a hand crafted frame, they instantaneously becoming a
masterpiece. Framed mirrors are just
like paintings, composition of which depends on the reality in a front of them.

Mirrors are alluring. Mirrors seduce people to straighten up and cock their head slightly and feel a little more,
glamorous. If you ever sit in a restaurant with your back to a mirror and with your partner opposite, you begin, to
understand just how seductive mirrors can be. It's hard for your partner not to keep glancing into it, ever so subtly.
Decorative wall mirrors add style to any room by giving guests glimpses of themselves throughout the party - improving their
demeanor ever so slightly. Mirrors make a room seem friendlier. Classically designed mirrors have a quiet dignity about
them like a grandfather clock. Mirrors add movement to a room by doubling the movement of the curtain in the breeze.
Mirrors expand your view.
Convention tells us that mirrors should be hung in the center of a wall at head
height. No matter how decorative mirrors are we usually hang mirrors in places
where we can easily look into them. We use mirrors to check our appearance
before we enter a room. We use quality mirrors to make a small space appear
larger. We use mirrors to to announce the arrival of guests before we actually
see them in person. We even use them to cover up imperfections on a wall. Using
mirrors as purely decorative objects not reflecting anything in particular is a
great decorating device. A mirror can take the place of a painting in a wall
arrangement. Mirrors can act as a foil for a beautiful frame that you want to
show off. You can hang mirrors high or low, or in multiples.
