Mirror Mirror Everywhere

Mirrors have been used as a decorative object throughout our history. Interior designers also use mirrors to make a room appear larger. By placing the mirror in a light reflected area, you can create various luminary illusions. Mirrors are now used largely in furniture and Accessories.

Here are some Mirrored objects:

Two in One: It can be used as a Mirror or as a bookcase.

I love the sparkling reflections created by the light.

BABYKAKE by Karim Rashid.

This is a wall leaning mirror with two areas on both the sides for storage. The storage is hidden by using a graceful looking door. I like the Mirror with the two angular Red doors a lot.

Appendispeechi by D'Urbino - Lomazzi

Belly Dance by Giovanni Tommaso Gratton

First: It is a double sided mirror used to hang any thing like Keys, umbrellas, coats etc.
Second: Mirrors are knitted using metal support. This has a dual use as well. The mirror when hung from the ceiling is used as a room divider, Or can be hung on a wall.

Double Fassane Mirror Radiator
By Acova

This is my Fav. A radiator and a mirror ensemble. Would you have imagined that?? Pretty awesome huh?
This fantastic radiator can be used in the foyer and bathroom.

Description taken from Trendir:

"The Double Fassane Mirror Radiator has five full-length flattened heating-tubes to maximise the heat output. Framed between these tubes is a 180 x 29 cm mirror. In foyers and bathrooms a full-length mirror is a necessity, allowing you that last quick check before you rush out the door."

Finally, the video embedded below is from the Cologne Design Festival, 2009 posted at Core 77. Here,
