Top 12 Magnificent Rooms Using Venetian Mirrors

It's a wonder how the 60's and 70's fashion would come back and be in trend every now and then. What if the styles that date way back from the 15th century would return?  Seems unbelievable, but here comes the magnificent Venetian wall mirrors that are now the pick of interior designers for making a new level of sophistication.

A brief background of where Venetian mirrors come from:  The Venetian island of Murano was the legendary birthplace of Venetian mirrors as only their master artisans have the skill of creating these artistically designed mirrors.  These mid-century styled mirrors are frameless wall mirrors that have the ornately hand-cut designs and at times added with the delicate hand etched designs on the glass surface.   These carvings range from leaf, floral, fruiting vines, to scroll motif style designs that signify the importance of nature elements at that time.  

The craftsmanship and devotion of glassmakers on their Venetian wall mirrors are exceptional. Each piece takes rigorous amount of time to create as it undergoes faceting, cutting, engravings, to silvering.  The framing and detailing are very unique and mesmerising.  That is why in the olden times, Venetian wall mirrors are only seen in houses of nobles and royalties.  With its meticulous process to make, each Venetian wall mirror is a master piece of art.  

Here we show you our favourite rooms beautified by Venetian wall mirrors.
