The process of uncovering the perfect mirror is much like curating art. Sure, they’re arguably more practical in nature, but statement mirrors are also powerful design elements that can have a commanding presence within a space. Take this bathroom at The Austin Tudor, for example. The Vintage Plaid Wallpaper in Marigold was begging for a textural, statement mirror to complement its charm. The chosen piece, a vintage gem from Show and Tell, perfectly balances the room’s whimsical aesthetic while adding tactile dimension. Its twisted frame is a feast for the eyes and creates a sense of depth within a relatively small bathroom.

Similarly, many designers are utilizing statement mirrors to create impact in their latest projects. From Zoe Feldman to Ashley Ferguson to Heidi Caillier, explore statement mirrors within four style categories and shop similar selections to get the look.

Natural Texture

Any designer will be quick to tell you the secret to a great space is texture. But sometimes, that textural layer needs to be brought up to the walls, which is when a statement mirror is the answer. Natural materials like hand-carved wood or woven rattan create a sense of depth and interest, bringing both movement and balance. Designer Zoe Feldman tested this principle, incorporating layered textures against limewashed walls in a small but mighty powder room. The addition of a statement mirror not only complemented the marble and brass but also introduced an unpredictable focal point.

Organic Movement

There’s no denying that squiggle mirrors are having a moment. The wavy shape lends a playful energy to a range of spaces, from kids’ rooms to entryways. In a recent project, Studio Nicholas Obeid used an asymmetrical mirror to juxtapose the clean lines of a vanity nook, while Prospect Refuge Studio paired a wavy mirror above a sleek console table to create a spirited dialogue of old and new. The whimsy of a squiggle mirror is a fun departure from the traditional rectangle shape and injects endless charm into a space.

Vintage Character

Whether an authentic antique or vintage-inspired, statement mirrors featuring ornate frames always channel a deep sense of nostalgia. Designer Ashley Ferguson understood this notion by pairing a Verdigris stone mirror with an 1800s Belgian antique trunk-turned-vanity in her client’s home. The visual weight of the statement mirror balances the gravitas of the trunk, while the addition of brass and marble unify the artful, well-worn aesthetic.

Gilded Glory

Statement mirrors come in many iterations, but the graceful curves of an antique brass frame is always a design win. Heidi Caillier knows this firsthand, repeatedly featuring gilded mirrors in her work. Whether placed in a powder room or displayed prominently above a fireplace, curved brass mirrors convey a sense of timeless elegance and quiet luxury, creating a statement on more subdued terms.
