A while ago I posted on a now defunct web-site called My Deco about Hollywood mirrors and their unashamed glamorous appeal. A supplier I knew was selling some and I got a flood of emails saying Me Me Me – lots of wanna-be and indeed should-be super-starlets out there! The supply dried up but the emails continued. I found myself researching mirrored lights again yesterday, finding both a high tech LED version and a super cool magazine featured one, inspiring me to update this post.
As Wallpaper comments in this rather tongue in cheek article, even poodles are partial to a fabulous Hollywood mirror and why wouldn’t they be, eh?
The original dream Hollywood mirror I found (pictured below) is called Perito Moreno, after a South American glacier no less. I think it’s quite marvellous, however so it should be at $3,600, ouch! Now that’s the sort of mirror a *real* Broadway leading lady might have…. and it’s available from Iris Designs Studio, so start saving up my lovelies.
Back down to earth with a bump and Revlon have one, below, at £50 or better if on sale as it often is on-line, but the reviews on it ain’t great.
The one I was looking at today was from a UK company I’ve bought from quite often, Roper Rhodes, who supply lovely bathroom mirrors, cabinets, bath panels et
t’s 600mm in diameter, LED lit, with a demister pad and an infra red on/off switch, all mod cons eh. Two views of it below, but I can’t drag the best one off their web-site (silly billys), zip onto their link to see it – under Mirrors – Clarity – then scroll along to the Opus mirror. It’s not the easiest of web-sites to navigate but the product is good. You’ll need to find a local supplier on-line. It’s designed for a bathroom but that doesn’t mean it has to be! Rrp £252 but you can find on-line for less.
Wow, I love these! Great article and I might just have to look into making our own version. Great way to brighten up a dressing table.
I love them, please please please can I design one for you?! x
i want 1 but think ill have to make my own as they so expensive
I love all these mirrors they are so quirky, Roper Rhodes now sell a fab DAB radio mirror, so if your in the market for something a bit different you should definitely check it out here
