A friend of mine has a fabulous collection of original art that's in a stack against her dining room wall. Why? Because she hasn't yet found the perfect round mirror to arrange her collection around. Adding a mirror to a gallery wall is an excellent way to add depth and light to a room, especially if you're working with a room that has too few windows. Whether you use a round mirror as part of a larger collection of wall art or choose to display it on its own, there are plenty of pretty choices on the market.
My current favorite is the Basswood Mirror ($300, middle row, left). The mirror's frame is covered with hundreds of end-cut basswood branches ranging in size from one-and-a-half inches in diameter all the way down to 1/16 of an inch! Each branch used has been cut by hand, sanded, and individually glued to the frame beneath.
Another favorite is the Williams and Sonoma Porthole Mirror Collection (on sale for $80-$100, middle row, center). Crafted from mango wood each mirror's frame is accented with an inner rim of brass.
