Mirrors

One of the home’s best-loved interior features has a lengthy history. Circa 4,000 BC the Mesopotamians regarded their reflections in a polished piece of metal, while the ‘Sun King’ Louis XIV of France ordered in excess of 300 framed mirrors for the famed Hall of Mirrors at the Palace of Versailles. Mirrors are frequently associated with vanity and luxury, but they can also be used for practical purposes, such as reflecting light into an otherwise dark home. This interior feature comes in all shapes and sizes and is as useful as it is beautiful.
