Beveled-edge glass mirrors
Step into an interior design showcase, and you'll see large mirrors leaning along the walls. Fashionable and functional, large mirrors -- called leaners -- adorn any room... or even the porch of your home.
A tongue-twister of a name, Hammacher Schlemmer, offers upper-crust gadgets to travellers in the SkyMall magazine. Yes, these people offer fancy ergonomic dog dishes and cat condos, but also a great price on these handsome mirrors. This beautiful, hand-finished mirror in antique copper, adds style to any room. Place it on the wall behind your Venetian glass chandelier, lean it near a stack of hard cover books, or use it opposite a window to add light to the room. The beveled-edge glass adds an upscale touch, while the mitered corners keep it distortion-free. It's offered in three sizes: the largest is 70 inches high and 46 inches wide. Hanging hardware is included too. The sturdy mirror tops out at 90 pounds, so be cautious with kids around. (Also beware, your partner may get frisky with a new large mirror in your dressing area.)
