Thompson Hotel Chicago | Tara Bernerd & Partners | Gettys

Thompson Hotels and Gettys teamed up with UK based Tara Bernerd for Thompson Chicago hotel. Tara Bernerd uses the Lola 48 from Reflecting Design in two places, the main lobby lounge and the restaurant Nico Osteria. The lobby mirror has become a Instagram hit. Below are links to interviews with Tara Bernerd discussing the design and a collection of related photos.

“As a restaurant element convex mirrors are an attractive proposition. In a situation where many people are sitting a flat mirror high on the wall tends to reflect the ceiling – not so interesting. Convex mirrors pull the room together in one place. When one looks at a convex mirror while seated, you experience a heightened ambiance.” – Matthew Buck

Cruyf 29- Updated Images

Reflecting Design would like to present a new photo set of Cruyf 29. We have had this mirror frame for a long time, however, it is only recently that we have managed to produce a satisfying set of pictures. The Cruyf is inspired by Dutch frame design of the 16th century (or some century long ago). Black frames, austere, dramatic. The name is inspired by Johan Cruyf the Dutch footballer of the 1970s. Cruyff became synonymous with the playing style of “Total Football”.

Here there are four different color finishes.;Antique Gold, Bone White, Flat Black and Pewter.

Lola 46 Black Grain | “Livingetc Magazine” | adding ‘Punch to Greys’

Reflecting Design’s Lola Mirror features on the cover of Livingetc’s February edition.  In an article about adding ‘Punch to Greys’ it is an interesting juxtaposition between the ubiquitous white room and the grey alternative.

 

Livingetc 201602 Cover

“Ways to add some punch to greys…”

Livingetc 201602_1

‘…  it’s the bold injection of colour and luxe details that steal the show. The custom Louis XV fireplace and 1930s stag chandeliers add beautiful, delicate detailing, while the yellow velvet armchairs are all the brightness this room needs. ” –  Livingetc

 

Livingetc 201602_3

The mirror is Black Grain, mostly black with warm brown undertones, lifting off the wall nicely. Reflecting Design’s Pewter colour  (a grey tone) would also fit well in this context. It would sparkle a bit more than the option here. The frame design opens to the room giving a nice vibe. The convex lens bounces maximum light from the window across the space.

 

livingetc_Bathroom-with-fireplace

“…  in a brightly coloured house it’s easy to go over the top, a grey scheme is the perfect backdrop for some extra personality.” A grey scheme with white details.

Apartment Therapy | Domino Magazine | The Charm of Convex Mirrors

design classic

“The charm of convex mirrors — and this is only one of many appealing qualities they possess — has got to be their ability to not only transform every space they appear in, but also allow themselves to be transformed. To bring style into a room, but also take on a little bit of a room’s style, too. This is why you often hear convex mirrors described using a plethora of design words, like industrial, modern and traditional, to name only a few.” – Apartment Therapy

Designer and Convex | Caroline Cobbold Design | Antique Alongside Contemporary

Screen Shot 2016-02-16 at 10.27.12caroline cobbold 2

In this Private Residence in London England, “Antique furniture sits alongside contemporary pieces, merging modern with vintage…” Here Caroline Cobbold uses a Lola 46 decorative convex mirror in Harvest Bronze finish. In her owns words, “ (she) prefers to layer different genres of styles so it appears that the client has built up their own collection of treasured items over time, without looking or feeling too overdesigned.”

A little electicism. It is nice to see a clients personality, joys and interests in their home.

Reflecting Design Convex Flat Mirror Compared Reflection

convex flat mirror compare With apologies and much respect I take these two photos to compare a flat mirror and a convex mirror reflection. For the best experience you would want to stand a the foot of the bed at left. The eye is so much more than a camera lens. If you think this is impressive the real thing is something more and more again.

Matthew Charlton | Master Bedroom | Cruyf Decorative Convex Mirror

Matthew Charlton | Master Bedroom | Cruyf Decorative Convex Mirror

I have to say I really enjoy this bathroom. It is impeccably tasteful. It feels like stepping back in time. I do not often see my mirror designs in a more classical setting and I appreciate the touch here. When I conceived the Cruyf  (Croyff) mirror I had a Dutch reformation aesthetic in mind – thick black frames like one sees hanging around a Vermeer. So a traditional design is very fitting. The print on the wall is perfect.

Lola Black Grain An Eye on The Wall

Something I like about the convex mirror in this interior is how high on the wall they put it. I would guess a temptation might have been to put it lower, where a viewer would be more central to the reflection. Here however the designer decided to use the mirror more like a surveillance piece – an Eye on the Wall. The open skylight window adds to this feeling.

Another inherent aspect to my mirror line I have always liked and which shows well here is the roundness. Note how the mirror contrasts the hard lines of the wall. It is a feminine touch in an otherwise masculine room- Lola – Black Grain

Reflecting Design | Corinth Decorative Convex Mirror | Gillian Gillies Toronto | Starlight Effect

One nice attribute of a convex mirror is the starlight effect as shown here. As a consequence of the curve lens the mirror reflects the ceiling light in this photograph as a kind of starlight. The effect gives the mirror a jewel-like appearance, like cut glass.

Reflecting Design | Corinth Dorian Bizari Motif

Pictures At An Exhibition

Indianapolis based Interior Designer Jeff Sheats uses the 33 inch Corinth, 24 inch Dorian and 40 inch Bizari, all in Bone White, to great effect in this lofty interior. Many say there is beauty in symmetry, some say asymmetry is more interesting. Jeff Sheats achieves both with this idea.

Jeff Sheats INterior Design

Nantucket-Inspired Remodel and Furnish
“This young family had grown tired of their previous French Country inspired rooms and turned to our design team to provide fresh, simple and airy coastal interiors. Their current spaces consisted of buttery golden walls, dusty floral patterned upholstery and many black finished casegoods that dominated their residence and created a significant disconnect with their graceful Cape Cod exterior. The collective new interior spaces created a very individual and unique statement for the client while creating a harmoniously cohesive coastal design throughout the entire residence successfully reflecting the clients lifestyle and desires.” – Jeff Sheats

Pazzo 38 | Decorative Convex Mirror | Simply Home Interior Design | 3D

Interior Design Lori Steeves used a Pazzo 38 in Flat Black to great effect in this seaside home. Pleasing is how well the circular mirror compliments the irregular rock mosaic. Also demonstrated in the picture is how the mirror captures the room at large and in depth. Notice that the mirror captures a floor to ceiling reflection. This 3D rendering is one of its cooler attributes of a convex mirror.

Reflecting Design | LED Corinth | Grafton On Sunset Olivers Prime Steakhouse Los Angeles

Los Angeles based Interior Designers Cynthia Forchielli and Helen Glynn requested the Corinth mirror with an LED backlit mirror for the newly renovated Grafton On Sunset restaurant Olivers Prime Steakhouse. The LED is on a dimmer so one can dial in a dynamic to subtle effect. The outcome is great success and Reflecting Design is now developing an LED kit for mirrors 38 inches and up. A solar eclipse at home.

London England.

Stylish and delightful.

Here is a wonderful example of how to elevate a white room into something juicy and joyful. A beautiful chandelier shows how the smallest bits of colour can lift one out of the mundane. With so much headroom the Lola Black Grain mirror fits perfectly. Why eight foot ceilings should be illegal.

Corinth Convex Mirror Ty Larkins Interior Design

Interior Designer Ty Larkins uses again a decorative convex mirror to create a magical element in this handsomely appointed room. Resonating elements of Egypt and the plains of Africa one wants to explore. The Bone White Corinth lifts nicely off a handsome colour. The photo perfectly demonstrates one of the best attributes of the convex mirror in a room setting – how it captures the room from any angle.

Corinth Convex Mirror | Anne Hathaway | Get Smart

In Style Magazine. Anne Hathaway styling in promo for 2008 film ‘Get Smart’ with Bone White Corinth convex mirror. The story has it that convex mirrors featured in 19th century dining rooms as a way the Butler could keep an eye on the table, hence the expression ‘butlers mirror’. Nice copy but highly suspect in my mind. Another story has it that Anne Hathaway has a twin sister.
