Avington Rectangular Mirror

Regular price £205
Unit price
Like our Carter mirrors, the black frame on this one makes it a striking piece. Unlike Carter though, Avington’s frame is made from painted timber and has a champagne-coloured gilded inside edge, so it’s less of a modern industrial statement and more of a classic, old-meets-new one – while the gilding might be a traditional detail, the clean shape and high contrast stops it feeling fussy.

The material

The wood for Avington comes from the Paulownia tree. It’s by far the fastest growing, deciduous hardwood in the world, and a single plantation can be harvested several times, offering a sustainable, renewable source of timber. You can read all about the Paulownia tree on our journal.

The finish

Our Avington mirrors have relatively deep frames, but adding the gilding to the inside edge as a stark contrast to the black-painted outer really highlights this detail and creates a strong look. We chose a pale champagne-gold gilding rather than a true gold or silver because we feel it has more subtlety and is neither very traditional nor very contemporary.

A styling tip or two

This mirror is an ideal size for using in all sorts of places, from above a mantlepiece to propped up on a console or dressing table. You could use it above the sink in a bathroom, hang it in your hallway or arrange it in amongst wall art prints in a salon-style wall (its frame will coordinate with our St Mawes, River Thames and Veneto collections, which will create a pleasing sense of repetition when they’re combined).
