For a kid who grew up in the ’90s, mirrored coffee tables might seem tacky and out of place. At a time when beige was the most popular color and simple, straight lines and hard geometric shapes made up a modern style that quickly became boring, there just wasn’t any room for something so shiny and beautiful. Some eras, like vintage, retro, Art Deco, and even Hollywood Regency, are back in style, just like before. And because of this, mirrored furniture and wall art started appearing in homes worldwide again.
Mirrored coffee tables are not only a nice decoration for your living room, but they are also useful, especially in small apartments. Mirrored coffee tables make the room they are in look bigger and brighter because they reflect light. Here, we look at a bunch of different types of beautiful mirrored coffee tables.
Sparkling Glam Let Loose!
It’s easy to fall in love with that beautiful mirrored coffee table when you’re shopping, but it’s a different story to bring it home and set it up in your living room, sunroom, or family room. This stylish piece of furniture goes well with the Hollywood Regency style that has a touch of modern elegance. Don’t feel like you have to overdo the glitz and glam in your design by only using black and white stripes and a mirrored coffee table. Instead, mix these elements with more subdued accents for a glamorous and approachable look.
When adding a mirrored coffee table to a living room, you should use shiny surfaces, mirrors, or even just a few silver accent pieces everywhere in the space. Even a mirrored coffee table and a small mirror over the fireplace with a mirrored frame can make a big difference in the mood of a modern, stylish living room. This is because repetition has a healing effect.
Iconic and Unusual
Adding geometric contrast to the living room can take the design to a new level, and a polished, mirror-topped coffee table isn’t the only way to do it. Aside from being interesting on their own, coffee tables with geometric shapes other than the standard rectangle and square beautifully reflect light. If you don’t like the look of a mirrored coffee table, plenty of modern silver tables have the same reflective quality.
Managing Multiple Perspectives
When shopping for a mirrored coffee table for your home, you should consider how often people walk through your living room and your habits. For many homes with young children, a coffee table with mirrors might not be a good idea. The fragile coffee table is only half of the problem. You also have to keep it clean and shiny all the time. Fingerprints and dust are easy to see on mirrored furniture, so it’s not a good choice if you don’t like to clean and take care of your space. Those willing to do more work should consider how they want the living area to look.
Surprisingly, the mirrored coffee table goes with a wide range of styles, from ultra-modern minimalism to shabby chic and even boho. The profile and shape of the coffee table, as well as the material it’s made of (for example, there are many different frames for mirrored coffee tables), determine whether or not it will work with a certain design scheme. A coffee table with a mirrored top and a worn-down wooden frame is a versatile piece of furniture that can go with many different styles. On the other hand, futuristic designs with a polished look are great for high-end bachelor flats that smell like minimalism.
Open Places to Live
A modern living room would look great with a mirrored coffee table. This beautiful coffee table may define or even be the focal point of a smart living room. It adds a touch of Art Deco without taking away from the most modern atmosphere, becoming more popular as open concept living becomes the norm. Mirrored beauty is especially helpful in small rooms because it makes it look like there is more space and gives the room a bright, happy feeling. If you try it, I promise you’ll be hooked on it.
