Frameless mirrors are a timeless piece, resisting the strong impression that comes with having a frame. Framed mirrors have no choice but to assert themselves as a particular style. Whether an artful, ornate wooden frame painted lavish gold or a thin, straight black metal frame neatly bordering your mirror, a frame always brings with it a specific style, concept, or design era. Frameless mirrors avoid this, and have the benefit of blending in with a huge range of interior styles. However, this does not mean that frameless mirrors don’t have a perfect fit! Quite the opposite; although they are flexible enough to fit with any style, some decors will bring out the best in a frameless mirror. Here are the greatest designs to pair with a frameless mirror:
Contemporary style is a somewhat vague umbrella term for styles emerging in the modern-day, in contract to modern style, which refers to early to mid 20th century design trends. Contemporary style borrows from many that came before it, such as Art Deco, minimalism, and modern design itself. This makes it the perfect fit for a frameless mirror, which will blend effortlessly with the muted tones and neat lines of contemporary design.
Minimalist design has offered much to contemporary design, and also celebrates neutral shades, straight lines, and neat shapes. Minimalist design usually commits to a pale palette with muted tones on top. A frameless mirror won’t disturb colour balance at all and won’t bring it’s own presence to the design, instead it’ll be assimilated perfectly by the pieces around it, producing the perfect minimalist effect.
Bauhaus style was born in Germany in an art school of the same name. Prominent in the 1920s, Bauhaus design features novel and innovative pieces and proudly displays funky shapes and bright colours with no historical influences and little emotion. This makes Bauhaus the perfect style to fit in a unique mirror design. Frameless mirrors – especially those in irregular or abstract shapes like shards or bubbles – will fit beautifully with Bauhaus design to produce a visually delightful style full of playful additions.
