Decorative Convex Mirror
Description and Specifications
The Knight in Chess
DORIAN is the first in the transitional collection of convex mirrors by designer Matthew Buck. Transitional in interior design suggests the use of traditional motifs interpreted to produce a contemporary piece. Dorian is not ornate like a traditional frame but not as severely basic as modern piece. The result is a design classic, timeless, and clean.
The Dorian frame profile is a balanced array of French curves and accents. Inspired by the knight from chess, who flanks the King and Queen, the first line of defense beyond the castle walls. The result is a handsome stoic frame with a strong vertical back spine and a cup-like inside descending to the mirror (see sketch).
Stand alone or as a set, for a hallway, nook, niche, small wall, add this stylish mirror to your interior design. Convex mirrors create a warm engaging atmosphere.

The Convex Mirror
All Reflecting Design convex mirrors use acrylic to create the convex mirror lens. Acrylic provides for a more consistent geometry. Consistent geometry means an even proportional scaling without any of the stretching or distortion one commonly sees in glass convex mirrors. Acrylic also allows for greater variability in the geometry which means Reflecting Design can maximize the height of the curve for an optimal visual experience.
Convex Mirror Care
Do not clean our convex mirror with glass cleaners. All Reflecting Design mirrors ship with a dedicated cleaning kit. The kit is cleaning solution, a microfibre cloth and instructions. These components are commonly available through hardware stores, plastic supply shops or directly through Reflecting Design. Care for your mirror and it will last a lifetime.
There is no flat mirror option.
