What Metal Mirror Frames Fit Your Aesthetic?

What Metal Mirror Frames Fit Your Aesthetic?

In modern times, we’re spoiled for choice when it comes to metal in our homes! For much of human history metal was the most expensive and least accessible material to create products from, with timber, fabric and animal products like bone and skins all being the more common choice for our furniture and to decorate our homes. But these days metal is forged into furniture for us as part of our daily lives, and each one has its own unique aesthetic appeal. Let’s see what design styles best fit your chosen metal.

Gold: Art Nouveau, Art Deco

Gold is a yellow metal reflecting back bright warm colours, and, along with copper and brass, gold fits perfectly with both the Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles. Both emerging between the last 19th and early 20th century, Art Nouveau and Art Deco both strongly feature golden metallic hues, but that’s where the similarities end! Art Nouveau is famous for its twisting scrolls and wavy lines, with elaborate decorative metals and curved legs on furniture being commonplace. But Art Deco is most known for its use of sharp, straight lights and symmetrical geometry. Likewise, Art Nouveau is usually paired with pastel pinks, and sky blues, while Art Deco tends towards dark backgrounds with high contrast value.

Silver: Minimalist, Contemporary

Silver is the metal of the day, with neat silver mirrors and straight, minimalist furniture being popularised in the 21st century. Silver reflects back a close to true reflection like a mirror itself, so it adds little impression of its own, making it the perfect addition to any minimalist or contemporary chic interior. Minimalist designs can make use of straight neat lines or waves and curves, so long as the colour palette is muted, and the lines are simple.

Iron: Gothic, Victorian

The Gothic style is perfect for large metal mirrors and grand wrought iron furniture, and throughout the Victorian era much of the furniture produced was created in these grand, twisted styles. Iron is a dull metal, lending itself to darker styles and making it the perfect addition to any Victorian or Gothic living space. By exuding history, these designer mirrors bring a unique stamp to any interior.
