Man in the Mirror: Antiqued and Colored Mirrors from a Los Angeles Designer

February 09, 2016 8:00 AM

Los Angeles–based interior designer John Linden fell into the art of mirrored glass after designing so many custom pieces in his projects that he found himself with a network of reliable glass suppliers across LA, Chicago, and New York. Three years ago, Linden decided to dedicate a business to wall mirrors and mirrored surfaces. Mirror Cooperative (or Mirror Coop) offers antiqued and colored mirrors as wall decor and custom designs (mirrored furniture, surfaces, and mosaics). We like the idea of making custom glass projects accessible to those outside of trade. We’re already planning out our next kitchen backsplash and hallway renovation, all in antiqued mirrors.
