Bespoke Vintage-Style Mirrors from a Small London Workshop

January 30, 2017

Admired recently: Statement-making mirrors that look like estate sale finds but are actually, custom-made. Reid & Wright, a small London company helmed by a frame-maker, two former prop designers, and a team of local craftspeople, offers dozens of customizable options for their round mirrors: There are three frame styles, nine finishes, four types of mirrored glass, and a variety of sizes to suit any interior. Here’s a look at a few of our favorite combinations, in-situ.

Above: Reid & Wright offers three frame types (the Orb, the Ridge, and the Bead) and a variety of gessoed, gilded, and wax finishes, including distressed antique gold, bone, and ebony, plus custom options. Shown here: an Orb frame with antique silver finish. Sizes range from eight inches to nearly four feet in diameter.

Above: Also on offer: four types of mirror glass, including plain glass (shown here), antiqued glass, convex, and convex antiqued.

Above: Traditional UK glass makers use a “slumping technique” to create the convex glass. The “curved, fish-eye effect” (shown here in an Orb frame with antique gold finish) lends a pleasingly distorted touch.
