When you are looking to purchase a mirror, you don’t have to go for a traditional framed piece just for the sake of it. This might be just what you need, but if you want to go for something a bit different, then be sure to consider the merits of a black glass mirror. Ever since the Art Deco period of 1920s Paris, the use of black glass in mirror designs have become more widespread. This is because as people started to see how black glass could add another dimension to a mirror, they decided it would be the perfect decoration for their homes. It is not just Art Deco mirrors which make the best use of black glass designs as there are many different styles of mirror which benefit from that particular clean, crisp and beautifully contrasting look. This is why many contemporary designers fit them seamlessly in with the rest of the décor they create and goes to show why these large mirrors are usually some of the most popular of any mirror collection. If you are considering one of these decorative designs then you may wish to run the rule over the black glass 'Octagon' mirror, with its black glass frame. This top end mirror would be perfect for any classic or modern style home.
