These Mirrors Will Give Your At-Home Selfie an Aesthetic Upgrade
Mirror, mirror, on the wall, which makes for the best selfie of all?
September 30, 2020|
We’ve gone down the Instagram rabbit hole of design inspirations and we like it there. It’s been a wondrous place of discovery. Let’s see. So far, we’ve placed our fingers on the Wassily chair, found candles that are so pretty we can’t bear to use them and have taken to vintage furniture shopping.
Just as it has in the past, Instagram has pointed the way to our latest interior obsession: mirrors. But hold up – it’s not just any other mirror. It’s the wiggly-edged, six-foot-tall, pink-hued Ultrafragola mirror by Italian architect Ettore Sottsass first created in 1970. Since being reproduced last year, the discerning design has seen a renaissance in the mirror selfies of Tinseltown’s young and hip. Bella Hadid, Franck Ocean and Sophia Amoruso count themselves as proud owners.
A mirror can do a lot more than fill an empty space in a room. It’s functional – that’s a given. What they also are, especially the sizeable ones, are an interior design hack that come in handy to open up the walls in a room and bring in more light.
Now that our eyes have been opened to a wonderful world of mirrors that double up as art against any wall, we could never go back to the plain ol’ characterless designs of our past. We’re also more than ready for our mirror selfies to get an aesthetic upgrade in the process.
Now, are you entirely convinced you too could use a new mirror for that outfit check before you exit the door? Pick a corner. Then, pick a mirror to fit. You can start right here:
Fortine Glam Accent Mirror
Cult of Nine Puffy Mirror
Gustaf Westman Curvy Mirror
