We have been very busy this week here at HomesDirect365 adding many new lovely mirror variations and we will continue to be adding more and more in the coming weeks. One of our most popular sections, our decorative mirrors make for the perfect companion to our antique French bedroom sets, and with today’s newsletter we are excited to bring some attention to the latest designs and styles we have available.
It’s conceivable that for thousands of years long before the actual invention of a mirror our ancestors would have been gazing at their reflections in still pools of water, but to pin point the existence of an actual mirror we go back around 2,400 years where it is believed the first mirror-makers lived near the city of Sidon in Syria.
Observing and acknowledging change can be a beautiful process; from still pools of water to the first broken shards of glass to the eventual immense mirrored furniture, structures, microscopes etc. that we have today, gradual but staggering evolution over time. This vast and storied history of the mirror elevates the reverence and importance of what is today considered a basic item, but with our mirror design we try to capture some of this.
Utilising elaborate ornate detailing and hand carved framing transforms the basic into magnificent pieces that give a glimpse into the beauty of all that has come before over the course of many centuries. Why settle for a simple reflective mirror surface when you could elevate an entire room with the right mirror… A wonderful overmantle mirror perhaps that brings a living room alive, or a gorgeous cheval mirror that makes getting ready in the morning a delight, there’s so many choices available there is bound to be something that catches your intrigue! Be sure to give our new mirrors a good browse!
