Your Best Opportunity to Buy a Beautiful Convex Mirror

“A convex mirror is more than just a mirror. It is something you will look at and love living with. You will never say as much about a flat mirror.”

CHROMO is our largest and most muscular design in the Odlum Entrance collection. A handsome 48 by 6 1/4 inch frame large, a 35 inch diameter mirror, it is a piece that sits front and center in a room.

The effect in practice is an imposing statement of style. It would be a mistake however to think that so large a mirror demands a room grand in scale only. In fact, size selection is simply a question of whether, one wants a mirror that sits in the background, or one that occupies a place in a room. Does one want an interior design that is quietly withdrawn or one more stated.

CHROMO is our largest and most muscular design in the Odlum Entrance collection. A bulging 48 by 6 1/4 inch frame large, a 35 inch diameter mirror, it is a piece that sits front and center in a room.

The effect in practice is an imposing statement of style and taste. It would be a mistake however to think that so large a mirror demands a room grand in scale only. In fact it is simply a question of whether one wants a mirror that sits in the background or occupies a place in a room. Does one want an interior design that is quietly withdrawn or one with style and personality.

The joy of convex is two-fold – the mirror and the frame. The mirror reflection creates a ‘wonderful’ atmosphere. It is engaging like a piece of art, an impressionistic piece that evokes the real and the imaginative. Being round both mirror and frame are congenial charming companions. Chromo is a great choice if you want something special or extra-ordinary, in a mirror.

Odlum Entrance represents all statement mirrors in the collection by Reflecting Design. These mirrors convey first a love for the convex mirror atmosphere – they all have large mirrors. Next, as large frames, they have an undeniable presence. This physical presence is further supported by the irrepressible spirit of the circle. A circle is a universal symbol with a plurality of meaning. It is a feminine maternal symbol, a symbol of the infinite, the cycle of life, a symbol of potential. A circle has a traquil presence. As an interior design element the circle – the Chromo mirror, centers the whole.

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.

Design Sketch

The Spirit of a Mirror

I believe there are certain ‘spiritual’ or abstract qualities inherent in my line of decorative convex mirrors. I promote convex mirrors to make money, yes, but equally I promote convex mirrors for non-material reasons. In the beginning I just thought convex mirrors were ‘cool’. Over time and with some of it spent thinking about my product line, I have gained an understanding, some of which you might like to consider.

It is said, “a mirror is absolute truth,” “a gateway to the soul”. And in a way this is the problem with flat mirrors. Setting aside their usefulness who wants to stare into their soul, or be confronted by an absolute truth this way? Sometimes a mirror reflection is a harsh, even unwanted, reality.

By comparison a convex mirror reflection takes one in another direction. A convex reflection inspires the imagination towards something else. We see in the round, a reflection of the world, a field of vision not dissimilar to our natural vision. Much as our eyes take in a large panorama the convex mirror presents similarly. It takes in or embraces people and place.

Unlike a flat mirror it is not self-centered. Compared to a flat mirror as well it is responsive; from wherever you stand the mirror reflection responds – it gives back something visually meaningful. Take for instance the flat mirror over the mantle. What do you see seated on the couch? The ceiling?

Equally positive is that a convex mirror is round. The circle is a universal symbol with many meanings. It represents the feminine or maternal; and beautifully the convex mirror bulges as if echoing this idea. The circle is a symbol of the infinite, the cycle of life and a symbol of potential. And so on the wall a circle evokes a deep feeling.

A circle is calm by nature. It does not impose itself on you in an aggressive, grand or pointed manner. In a world where architecture is often hard and rectilinear the circle by contrast is soft and friendly.

And so, I think there are ways in which a decorative convex mirror in an interior design can bring much positivity and pleasure. It will be something you will always enjoy.

Admittedly this all sounds somewhat lofty or pretentious since I am merely talking about a mirror, but I stand by this. You will love living with your convex mirror.
