Mirrors are an integral feature of interior design and an antique mirror can become the focal point of any room. Mirrors can be utilised in a multitude of ways – from decorative to adding the impression of space and warmth to a room. The Georgian period spanned from 1714 - 1837 and as tastes changed, the styles of mirrors evolved to reflect this. Whether you need a vanity mirror to sit atop a dressing table or a large statement mirror above the mantlepiece, a well-chosen mirror will enhance your room. Explore Vinterior’s range of Georgian mirrors to add additional romance and ambience to your home.

Why choose a Georgian mirror?

A mirror can be one of the most important purchases you make when furnishing your home. Both practical and decorative, they can enhance a room in ways you may not have considered previously. A Georgian mirror can not only complement existing Georgian furniture but works equally well as a stand-out piece in a contemporary aesthetic.

The mirror’s principal and most obvious use is to check your appearance and we have some delightful dressing table mirrors in our range. A stunning mahogany dressing mirror complete with vanity drawers would look beautiful on a matching dressing table. With intricate features such as a boxwood and ebony strung edge, and turned ivory knob handles, it is a piece you will instantly fall in love with.

If your living space is limited or cramped, a well-placed mirror can add both light and the impression of space, making the room feel both warmer and larger. Place opposite windows to enhance natural light and illuminate dark spots in your room.

Many Georgian mirrors have ornate, carved frames. Pieces from earlier in the period are in walnut while mahogany was popular in the latter half of the era. Quite often gilded, they are a beautiful addition to any home. Add to the hallway to not only check your appearance on the way out of the door, but also amaze your guests on arrival.

Do you have a beautiful view from your window? Place your mirror to take advantage of this and view it whichever direction you are looking in. Larger mirrors, traditionally sat above the mantlepiece can become the focal point of the room, creating a strong and distinctive look. They will also greatly enhance the light flooding into the room and add a sense of depth and space that wouldn’t be possible with a piece of wall art or a landscape photo.

Of course, antique mirrors can have decorative purposes, too. Choose the right one and it can lift a room as well as any painting. Use a mirror creatively by marrying the choice of frame with the rest of the décor and you can create a sense of warmth and comfort, particularly when using rich woods.

Georgian mirrors: why shop with Vinterior?

Every mirror ages over time and the Vinterior range has mirrors that undoubtedly reflect an element of wear over the years. Yet these finest pieces typically wear their age with great grace.

Whether it is the slight fading of the gilding on the frame, or minor spots due to oxidisation on the glass, this enhances rather than detracts from the mirror’s appeal and makes each one unique. The detailing and craftsmanship involved in each piece is to be admired, and each room in your home could benefit from a well-chosen antique mirror.

Bold or delicate, statement or decorative, our collection has something for all tastes. A Georgian mirror can even be used to contrast and counterpoint an otherwise neutral, modern and minimalist space.
