Mirrors are not just for checking your hair before you go out – they can fill a room with light if positioned cleverly and if you have a dark corner in any room, a mirror will open it up and give depth to the whole area.
If you use more than one mirror you can achieve some amazing effects, with lights being reflected back and forth between them. With some of the mirrors in the Chandelier and Mirror Company’s enormous collection, the mirrored element scarcely matters as the shapes and frames are so beautiful in their own right. With over four hundred to choose from and ranging from the fabulously over the top gilded grapes of Swainston to the elegant and simple lines of shabby chic Caversham you will soon have mirrors enhancing every spare corner of your home – there are even some specifically for use in the garden.
Chandeliers are not just big sparkly glass lights any more – although if it is big and sparkly you are after, there are plenty to choose from in the Chandelier and Mirror Company range of over 400 models.
You will also find stylish coloured chandeliers to suit any room in the house but would look stunning in a bedroom – and very simple, pared down designs which add sophistication to a minimalist decor whilst giving a focal point. The simple to use website means that you can either browse the whole range including the fashionable gold chandeliers or just pick specifics to make the choosing easier.
If you are looking for a perfect statement piece of furniture to complete a room’s look, you are bound to find it at the Chandelier and Mirror Company.
These are not the standard ‘brown furniture’ of other retailers – here you will find silver, glass, chinoiserie and modern designs which are certain to draw the attention of all of your guests. If you like to be different and believe that coffee tables are not just flat surfaces to put your cup down on, then get browsing. There are lovely things on every page and again, to make it easier, the page is broken down into categories – don’t restrict yourself, though, because the whole range is really lovely.
If chandeliers are not really right for you, then check out the lighting section at the Chandelier and Mirror Company.
With everything from outdoor lanterns to pages and pages of the most gorgeous table lamps you will ever see, you will be sure to find the perfect lamp, ceiling fitment or specialist lighting unit you are looking for. Many of the ranges come as models throughout the lighting types – wall lights, table lamps, floor lamps and ceiling fitments. This is excellent news for anyone who likes to link their rooms together with a coherent plan. Having similar lighting themes throughout the house is very calming – although your guests probably won’t know why, they will feel relaxed as they move from room to room, as each new space will feel familiar.
Mirrors are taken an unusual step further at the Chandelier and Mirror Company with mirror art, using various techniques such as paint, appliqué and engraving to make some spectacular pieces which would make a perfect focal point wherever they are placed.
Using colour as well as the reflected light, the cityscapes, splashes and flowers in the many designs available will fit into almost any room. In a very simple setting, especially if they are placed as the only piece of wall art, mirror art pieces are a simple and elegant way to dress a room. With over thirty designs to choose from there is bound to be one to fit your decor.
Adding table lamps as you decorate rooms is a good way to quickly and effectively give a lift to a neutral room which needs to be given a bit of a tweak or a splash of colour – sometimes neutral stops being cool and calming and just ends up bland. A bright citrus or clear red table lamp strategically placed can bring it back to life in no time.
Think of the new depths and highlights that a new table lamp can bring to a room. Consider lighting new areas, such as using an up-lighter under a favourite picture or beneath an Oriental carving or pierced vase. The shadows it casts will make a huge difference to the whole room. You can have a lot of fun with table lamps because of their relatively low cost and their ease of fitting. All you need do is plug it in to the nearest wall socket and you are good to go. If you tire of a table lamp you don’t have to redecorate or anything expensive like that. All you need do is unplug it and recycle it into another room in the house, where it can give another room a bit of a change of look. In this way, one purchase can jazz up two rooms – a real bargain.
The wonderful range of wall lighting from The Chandelier and Mirror Company every covers every style, from classic styles in crystal and wood to ultra-modern flat mirror lights suitable for even the trendiest interiors, enabling you to match your wall lights in with your other lighting. Matching your wall lights in with your other lighting and décor will give a very co-ordinated look and with some careful positioning you can make the whole room look different for different moods.
Using wall lighting to change the mood in a multi-purpose room is a really excellent way of making the lighting right for any task. If the lounge or dining room tends to be a hobby or homework room as well, a central ceiling light giving good, strong direct light is fine, but when the time comes to put away the crafts and the books, using wall lighting can give a different ambience either for a relaxing evening, watching television, having a chat or dining.
Having given you an amazing choice of lighting, mirrors and furniture to choose from, the Chandelier and Mirror Company don’t stop there. In their home accessories section they have all those little bits and pieces which you can dot around to finish everything off.
Sometimes these little bits of bijouterie can be hard to get hold of – you know what you want, but when you find it in a shop, you can’t quite picture whether it will go with everything else at home. On the Chandelier and Mirror Company website or at their showroom, this isn’t a problem, because you can just go back and have a look – you will usually find that it will ‘go’ because everything in our range is well-chosen to look good anywhere.
