Your Best Opportunity to Buy a Beautiful Convex Mirror

“Unfortunately when wanting more than anything to be the semblance of a modern person, a design like Ilyrian goes missed. In some ways it is the most tenderly beautiful of my designs, barring possibly the new Arcavia.”

 

ILYRIAN [ih-leer-ee-uh n] is the perfect mid-size convex mirror. At 33 inches outside diameter the frame is adaptable to most design applications. The visible mirror is 26 inches in diameter, offering fully the panoramic experience convex mirror lovers seek. Compare the craft and sophisticated detailing to any mirror in the market, Ilyrian is special . Explore the images, the conclusion is undeniable. A mirror that bridges the traditional and transitional beautifully.

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.

Flat Mirror
There is no flat mirror option.

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.
