1950s mirrors reflect timeless elegance, minimalism and character and have the ability to completely transform a dull and dark space to a bright and open one whilst adding a stylish touch of class to any wall. Mid-century furniture design focussed on function and form. The era’s designers played with the form and design of the mirror, creating classic pieces with enough presence to hang alone as a statement piece or to perfectly complement other wall art. At Vinterior, we have an extensive collection of 1950s mirrors, so you can be sure you’ll find a looking glass that’ll add the perfect finishing touch to any room in your home.

Why choose 1950s mirrors?

If your walls are blank and you need to bring a flash of interest to them, a vintage mirror could be exactly what you’re looking for. A mirror creates light, space and depth wherever it is positioned, and a characterful frame is a brilliant decorative feature. While a modern mirror from your local high street will certainly be as functional as a heritage piece, you simply won’t get the same character and charm from a mass-market mirror that you can also find in every home on your street.

When decorating a small room, a good mirror is worth investing in as it creates the illusion of space, as well as adding style. Mid-century wall and floor mirrors adhere to the streamlined, sculptured spirit of modernism, which means they make a great additions to any room of the house – from bathroom to kitchen; sitting room to bedroom. A 1950s mirror is quite at home wherever you put it. Brighten up your hallway, add a 50s twist to your bathroom or accompany it with family photographs in a well-curated display on the bedroom wall. The possibilities are endless and exciting.

Many 1950s mirrors came from Italy, the European heart of glassmaking, which produced elegant frames in sophisticated, high-gloss materials such as chrome and brass, playing into the era’s love affair with futurism. Elsewhere, Scandinavian mirrors are often framed in teak and come in an interesting array of organic shapes – so why just stick to a standard rectangular or circular mirror when re-designing your space? An unusually shaped piece will add interest to your room and allow the mirror to act as a decorative item as well as a functional one.

Be sure to experiment with creative mirror positioning and placement to find a unique setup that works for you. But rest assured that a one-of-a-kind, vintage mirror is a statement piece that will perfectly complete the look of your room.
