7 Different Ways to Design with Mirrors

Mirror, Mirror…

You may have heard the saying, “mirrored furniture is the red lipstick of interior design.” Whether you’re looking to add a touch of glamour or element of elegance to your space, mirrored furniture is the perfect and versatile decorative element for both modern, contemporary, transitional and even more traditional styled homes. From cocktail tables, to console tables, to nightstands, and even lighting, mirrored furniture instantly illuminates a dark room, creates the illusion of space, and can serve as a beautiful statement piece and focal point in any room.

See how we use sleek and chic mirrored pieces from Cantoni, in the bedroom, living room, and dining room to get ideas and inspiration!

Mirrored Cocktail Tables

In this sprawling, sky-bound estate at Museum Tower, Dallas’ luxury residential high rise, Cantoni’s dynamic duo, Josh De La Fuente and Elizabeth Lewis incorporated one of our mirrored cocktail tables, which not only reflects the details of the building’s beautiful architectural elements, but acts as a focal point in the grand space too. Please note that this particular cocktail table has limited availability. Contact Josh or Elizabeth at our Dallas store or any of our talented designers at your nearest Cantoni store to get more info.

Mirrored Nightstands

Adding a mirrored piece of furniture, like these multi-faceted nightstands, brighten this rather dark bedroom. Also, pairing mirrored nightstands with an oversized floor mirror helps to further lighten the space while reflecting the beauty of the room’s furnishings and decor at the same time. Please note that this particular nightstand was special ordered.

Mirrored Light Fixtures

Mirrored furniture is often associated with words like vintage and old hollywood glam…well it doesn’t necessarily have to be. Case in point: the reflective Hublot Ceiling Fixture. Here, we have a modern take on a mirrored item, which still manages to reflect and accentuate the beauty of the entire room.

A Mirrored Sideboard

Generally, functionality is a priority when it comes to choosing a buffet or sideboard for your dining room. The Prisma Sideboard, provides just that with a little something extra. With a mirrored sideboard, the beauty and design intricacies of your dining table and chairs can be seen from all angles. Please note that the Prisma Sideboard is currently only stocked in a walnut and burnt oak finish but can be special ordered in the mirrored finish pictured above. Contact your Cantoni designer for more info.

A Mirrored Side Table

Reflective surfaces, like a mirrored side or end table can add texture and interest to a space, playing off of dressed walls or intricate rugs.

Mirrored Table Lamp

As previously mentioned, mirrors are a great way to illuminate dark spaces. Adding a piece like a mirrored table lamp, can instantly lighten a dark corner like the one featured above both literally and metaphorically.

Mirrored Accessories


For something a little more subdued, try smaller mirrored items, like our Foley Mirror Boxes featuring a mirrored mosaic exterior. Mirrored serving trays are another subtle decorative element, which adds a touch of glam and brings an aspect of functionality as well!
