Reader Question: Where to find a french style mirror?

On July 18th, 2008 by .

Q: I am looking for a French style mirror for my living room. I would like the frame to be fairly plane with some detailing at the top and it needs to measure approximately 100cm width x 80cm height. Rosemary Ashworth.


A: French style mirrors have become increasingly popular and look fantastic in a modern or shabby chic room. You can buy this style of mirror from a few high street shops including Laura Ashley, Next and Marks and Spencer. Another great place to buy one is a company called Scumble Goosie they make bespoke French and Gustavian style furniture. As they make all of their pieces in their own warehouse, you can opt for a particular paint finish.

Another company that sells gorgeous french furniture is called The French Bedroom company. They are slightly more expensive than the high street but any products bought from here could be seen as an investment purchase. Chose from their large selection of mirrors, beds and accessories.

Why not try Virgin Vie at Home for some French style accessories
