An oversized leaning mirror is one hell of an accent piece to include in your cool male living space. It’s a maximalist move, which has the additional benefit of making a room appear larger and taller. Place the mirror opposite a natural light source for added natural light.
Oversized leaning mirrors are a recent trend within cool living spaces. Most will have stands to so it gives the impression of leaning against the wall without damaging the paint or wallpaper. The effect is dramatic, obviously you would expect a mirror to be hung up, but having one placed on the ground is jarring and looks awesome. Mixed with other modern living space design tropes like having tonnes of plants (as below) will have a trendy, mid-century modern, effect.
Some of them can be really, really big. These XXL giant mirrors in the below photos are not as common. They seem to be a logarithmic scale larger than the typical large mirrors you can purchase from retail stores, as there probably isn’t a large market for them. These elephant-like mirrors are an even more dramatic accent piece to have in your home (once you’ve figured out how to get them through the door).
But where would you even purchase one of these large mirrors? In order to get these super sized mirrors, you would most likely have to look at your local antique dealerships in your area. As an example, here are a couple of recently sold antique mirrors from British dealer, Puckhaber.
Luckily for us, non castle-dwelling plebs, there are some much more practical oversized accent mirrors you can purchase from Wayfair, who have a massive collection of mirrors to suit any sized home, with all sorts of frames and styles to suit any male living space. Capitalize on this upcoming trend and stand out from the crowd. Be sure to check out the customer photos of the below mirrors to see what they look like without professional lighting etc.
