mirrored furniture

file this one under "trends i didn't like at first but the more i saw them the more they grew on me." it can be friends with pointy-toed shoes and skinny jeans. what's funny is that i still didn't think i liked mirrored furniture until i realized there was a bunch of it in my inspiration files. go figure.

either of these would make super nightstands:



this is similar to the above nightstand but is labeled a sideboard, so it must be larger. i think i actually prefer its more intricate pattern:

this one is actually borderline too intense for me, but i still like it.


so i guess i do like mirrored furniture. though i'm still not quite ready to get on board with this.

Lauren, I usually love your taste, but I think I'm going to have to respectfully point out something you should think of before you purchase or make mirrored furniture. Cleaning a mirror is easy right? What about cleaning 16 tiny mirrors all separated by a thin slat of wood? What about cleaning those mirrors daily becasue they are constantly smudged with dog noses, and later, little finger prints? The furniture may be beautiful, but I'm appealling to your practical side- maybe you could look for somethign with stamped tin inlays?

Hi Lauren! Reading over your blog (which I love - Jake and I are thinking of venturing into the home owner crowd), I was wondering if you'd ever been down to Worlds Away's warehouse downtown? Jake's mom used to work there and they ship most of their stuff off to Neiman Marcus and such but the scratch and dent stuff stays in the warehouse and goes on sale. You get great bargains there and the style seems to be kind of what you like. I've gotten some stuff there. I don't know if that is interesting to you but it is a little gem I love sharing with people because it is so fun!
