The French Rococo mirrors are always a ‘yes’ vote to add that European je ne sais quoi to your homes.
So, for better or for worse, England has voted to leave to European Union, but we are of course still part of Europe and citizens of Earth, and here at DUSX we take inspiration for our furniture from all over the world. Our French Rococo mirrors are trés Francais typique, and will not fail to lend your home that little bit of elegance that it’s been missing.
The Versailles French grey and gold overmantle mirror pairs well with modern interiors as well as vintage style decor, and would also look stunning when used as a bathroom mirror placed over the sink or bath to give a truly decadent touch to the smallest room of your home.
French mirrors have a glorious history, dating back to the Hall of Mirrors in the Palais de Versailles created by Louis XIV. Mirrors were used extensively in the design of this impressive building and were strategically placed to reflect the breathtaking views of the gardens at Versailles. You can use mirrors to achieve the same effect in your home, whether you want to reflect more light into your room or create the appearance of more space, or you wish to admire your reflection from all angles with some full length mirrors.
From smaller oval mirrors like the delicately ribboned Ophelia mirror (right) to the grand and decadent Adele floor standing mirrors (right), there’s a Rococo mirror to suit all tastes and styles. These would make ideal dressing mirrors when placed on the wall above a vintage style chest of drawers or console table.
Our La Coquille mirrors feature elegantly curved asymmetrical crests which is classical of the French Rococo style of design. These handsome mirrors come in several sizes and colours, and are perfect for using as bedroom mirrors or bathroom mirrors.
This French Boudoir wardrobe features an impressive hand-carved Rococo style crest and finely detailed carvings and motifs all over that make it perfect for pairing with our Rococo mirrors. The bevelled mirrors on each door come in handy when getting ready to out, checking your appearance, and for twirling about in front of when dressing up 🙂
The Augustina and Lorelei mirrors feature perfectly bevelled curved glass – a process which is no mean feat. These mirrors are bevelled by hand, a skill perfected by our teams of master mirror makers. The frames of these large mirrors are just as finely detailed – bold Rococo swirls and curves dance around the mirror’s frame, further enhanced by silver gilt leaf and floral embellishments.
