Decorative Convex Mirror
Description and Specifications
ILYRIAN [ih-leer-ee-uh n] is a 33 inch diameter framed convex mirror. Ilyrian is a redesign of the much liked Corinth profile, here however, a crenelated decorative detail is laid into the inside face. This creates a style that is traditional or classical in its sensibilities, particularly when rendered in an Antique Gold finish. On the other hand, in the other colours the style is more transitional or contemporary.
Classical yes, but this is not the traditional of eagles and girondelles, oak leaves and the garish pretentiousness of royalty or the old world. Ilyrian is a beautifully tasteful handsomely detail mirror frame design. For designer Matthew Buck, “It is a design people intuitively overlook, but this is a shame, since it is really an exceptional piece.”
Transitional in interior design suggests here the use of motifs interpreted to produce a contemporary piece. Ilyrian employs traditional elements – French curves and the decorative motif, but it is not severe or minimalist as a modern piece. The result is this elegant design, timeless, and clean.
Convex mirrors curve outward grabbing reflections from the side and front. The effect is uniquely inclusive and engaging. The mirror is symmetrical. Objects are reduced evenly and there is no stretching or distortion in a the convex mirror. The bulge of the lens offers a softness and feminine sensibility which is very pleasant. A great offset to the hard-line common in so much architectural design and interior design.

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.
