The Edinburgh mirror’s made of oak – a hardwood with a real sense of heritage and enduring strength. You can expect the odd knot here and the odd change in wood grain there – which means no two pieces will ever look quite the same.
To add a bit more texture to, the oak has a brushed surface that exposes the grooves in its grain. We also stain it to make it slightly darker and bring out the grain even more. And then we apply our treatment oil – IsoGuard® – to make it easier to live with. Think of it as a defence barrier, but one that you’d never know was there.
The glass on our Edinburgh mirror is bevelled to create a more traditional, classic look.
Ways to use it
Mirrors create a sense of space – hung at the end of a short hallway, they’ll add depth; hung either side of a narrow hallway, they’ll add width. They boost natural light – so position one opposite a window in a dark hallway or a dark corner of a room. A mirror can create an interesting focal point – place one behind a special object you want to highlight, and so create a reflection of it in another part of the room.
Taking care of Edinburgh
When it comes to care advice, because of Edinburgh’s specific timber finish it's actually already protected by IsoGuard®. So just wipe the surface with a damp cloth and then dry fully with one that’s soft, clean and dry.
Just so you know
Edinburgh has a deep frame so you can hang it, or prop it up on a piece of furniture or a mantelpiece. It’s also suitable for use in a bathroom. To hang, you’ll need to select fixings that are best for your wall, which is why we haven’t included these.
