As we spend more time in our abodes to help curb the spread of the pandemic, our social media feeds are similarly reflecting our current stay-home circumstances. As it turns out, a new wave of Instagram selfies has sprung. Instead of idyllic holiday snapshots, selfies flaunting work-from-home outfits in front of statement mirrors are saturating social media feeds.
Appearing on the feeds of some of the most stylish tastemakers as they share their outfit of the day, these trendy mirrors often feature whimsical and playful designs that make them the focal piece of their rooms.
The Curvy Mirror is one such outstanding example. Designed by Swedish designer Gustaf Westman, the much-loved statement mirror appeals with its organic design.
Notably, the mirror's precursor is the iconic Ultrafragola Mirror by Italian architect Ettore Sottsass, founder of the Memphis Group and one of Westman’s design influences. Embodying certain key characteristics of the Memphis design movement, the mirror features repetitive wavy patterns and are available in a selection of dreamy pastel hues.
It’s easy to see why these made-to-order mirrors are trending on Instagram. Amidst the stress and darker times of the pandemic, the mirrors’ unconventional frames and playful nature helps brighten up both interiors and moods.
Combining decorative elements with the practicality of reflective surfaces, Westman’s design adds fun and colour to any and every space. The frames are made of wood and are carefully lacquered for a semi-matte finish. Meticulously crafted by hand in Sweden, the mirrors are available in two sizes.
