Mirrors are great, aren't they? You can stand them on dressing tables or hang them in living rooms, bedrooms or halls, and most bathrooms have at least one. They add style and glamour, changing the feel of your room by reflecting light around and enhancing the textures and colours.
But there are times when only full length mirrors will do. A larger mirror lets you check your whole reflection, as well as giving an illusion of space in your room.
HomesDirect365 has a stunning collection of full length floor mirrors that stand alone, without the need for hanging on a wall. If you want to learn more about them, take a look at these beautiful floor standing mirrors.
Several of the items in our collection are heavily influenced by French designs and styles, including these examples:
Each of these free standing mirrors display typical French elegance, with beautifully carved frames that curve sensually to form pleasing shapes. The first three on the list are finished in antique white, while the Raphael has a seductive dark mahogany frame and the Chloe is finished in a fashionable grey.
All of them are free standing mirrors, in the cheval style. This is a French term, meaning horse, which is a reference to the four curved legs and feet that support the unit.
Our French floor standing mirrors work well wherever you place it, whether in the bedroom, bathroom, dressing room or hall. The long mirror can be angled for your convenience, offering a full length view from head to toe!
If you're creating a shabby chic space in your home, any of our French inspired furniture is worth a look as it compliments this look perfectly. We also have a few pieces specifically designed for the task:
This is a rectangular floor standing mirror with ornate carving on the head panel, capped by a pediment. It has an appealing whitewashed oak finish that will suit most shabby chic designs.
This mirror is free standing, with a hinged support at the back that allows you to angle the unit to your best advantage.
Similar in many ways to its counterparts in the French section above, the Juliette is a perfect match for shabby chic rooms. The cheval mirror frame has a distressed whitewash finish and is intricately carved with an attractive floral motif with a love heart in the centre. This is held in place by two supporting arms that run down to the sturdy base, and this outer part is finished in a contrasting vintage white.
We have our own classic styles in the UK (admittedly influenced by French styles!) that have stood the test of time. These designs never go out of fashion, infusing our homes with class and sophistication.
Here are some perfect examples:
Like all good classically themed furniture, these have elaborate carvings that display motifs from Ancient Greece and Rome, such as Acanthus leaves and swirling foliage.
This range is available in four finishes: silver, white, black and cream.
The Lambeth echoes the design, quality and features of the Elizabeth, with carved classical decoration around the frame culminating in a large crest at the top centre. The support at the back swings out so that the mirror can be set at an angle, and can be fixed in place for extra sturdiness.
Available in white or silver, this attractive free standing mirror is an item to be proud of.
Industrial styles have risen in popularity over recent years, and at HomesDirect365, we strive to ensure that new products are added to our stock list to represent our customers' requirements.
That means we source industrial furniture for our online shop, including floor standing mirrors, like these:
This stylish and practical unit has a tubular frame in a bare metal finish. The rectangular shape is softened by curved edges and the whole thing sits on a circular base. But what makes this item special is that the mirror swivels horizontally on a central spindle to reveal two storage shelves and three coat pegs on the reverse!
The black tubular frame curves around this elongated oval mirror that stands on four feet in the cheval style. The mirror pivots on the supporting arms for easy adjustment.
There's a real industrial vibe from the distressed metal finish and the way that it looks as if it was constructed from old machines taken from a factory floor.
As you'd expect, HomesDirect365 has a huge range of modern free standing mirrors to browse through. We've picked out a few here to give you a flavour of what we have to offer.
