Rocco Borghese Chandeliers announces the arrival of their new service – custom mirrors. Bespoke mirrors created to their customers’ exact specifications; these will complement the London high-end lighting designers’ burgeoning wider collection.
The custom-etched mirrors sit so beautifully alongside Rocco Borghese’s hand-blown lighting because they are another luxury artisan interior design product that is much in demand. Whether used in the kitchen, bathroom, living room or bedroom, mirrors can work amazing alchemy on interior design space.
On the launch of their new designer mirrors, Rocco Borghese comments: “It was time to bring some new light to the collection – so to speak. Custom-made mirrors are the perfect accompaniment to our chandeliers and bespoke lighting ranges. Mirrors and lighting go hand-in-hand and can make or break an interior design project. At Rocco Borghese Chandeliers, we are all about making interior design projects – making them sensational”.
Mirrors come in many forms – from free-standing mirrors to wall-mounted decorative mirrors to mirrored walls and mirrored ceilings – and each should be chosen to bring a little bit of magic to a room’s overall look and feel. Thoughtfully placed silvered glass can also create optical illusions where desired, making a space appear bigger or helping to bring the green lushness of the outside in. But the real beauty of a custom mirror is that it can be created using age-old hand-blown glass techniques, a supreme blend of high-lustre glass and mind-blowing contemporary design innovations.
The most innovative of Rocco Borghese Chandeliers’ mirrors includes the ravishing rose vanity designed exclusively for Annabel’s in Mayfair, which features coloured glass for a perfectly pretty pop. While the Art Deco styling of the Milano, with its beautiful bevelling, brings the classic look of classic lines – ideal for contemporary homes and commercial spaces alike.
As mirrors reflect light and contribute to the overall illumination, they fall into a lighting designer’s brief when considering the lighting for any given room. At Rocco Borghese Chandeliers, they are known to design custom mirrors and architectural lighting side-by-side to achieve maximum illumination and ultimate impact for the spaces they are tasked with transforming.
Like lighting, designer mirrors with silvered glass or intricate etchings can make a fantastic focal point for a room. The bigger and bolder the better, for large spaces. But quality and style should never be compromised no matter the square footage. There is also a leaning towards the use of mirrors as artwork. A standard full-length mirror in the wardrobe and basic bathroom vanities aside, mirrors are no longer just functional items. Custom mirrors can be fun and fabulous – two things the Rocco Borghese Chandeliers brand is all about.
On hearing the launch of the new bespoke mirrors, Alicia MacDonald (of the interior design industry press), said:
“ROCCO BORGHESE’S LIGHTING FEATURES ALWAYS REMIND ME OF DALE CHIHULY’S INSTALLATIONS, THEY ARE INEXTRICABLY CAPTIVATING WORKS OF ART THAT ENHANCE ANY SPACE. THESE BESPOKE MIRRORS ARE A PERFECT PROGRESSION FOR A MASTER OF LIGHT AND GLASS DESIGN”
