TRENDS REFLECTIVE DECOR MIRRORED FURNITURE GAINS TRACTION Ikea's MALM mirrored chest of drawers. Laura Trieste MIRRORED furniture can give a home a clean and modern feel and is a trend that continues to gain momentum. The look was more commonly found in higher-end retailers. But these days the reflective silver pieces can be seen at each end of the price range. Ikea's MALM furniture series has given its chest of drawers a mirrored makeover. The three drawers have a fully mirrored finish and come with an inte- grated damper so the drawers close slowly and quietly. ''Mirror furniture comp- lements any solid colour furni- ture and accessories,'' Ikea pub- lic relations manager Angela McCann said. ''It makes a state- ment in design and gives the room a modern look.'' Laura Ashley have been nail- ing the mirrored trend for some time now. They are currently stocking a new Capri range of tables, which come with mir- rored tops, bevelled edges and dark stained walnut legs. This is available as a coffee, console and side table. Coco Republic have also found ways to incorporate the trend in many of their pieces, including their new club chair. REFLECTING ON YOUR FURNITURE Today you can find cupboards fitted with mirrors, chests of drawers, storage, even tables and chairs. MIRRORED furniture is a popu- lar decorating trend and has been of interest for decades. When decorating with mir- rored furniture pay special attention, as it will dramatically change the look and feel of the room. Anything too big will be bor- ing. Don't forget that mirrored furniture makes any space ap- pear bigger so think about its placement. In the bedroom you don't want any- thing too dramatic. A mirrored chest of drawers is enough to make a statement. Add decor- ative things around it. Today you can find cupboards fitted with mirrors, chests of drawers, storage, even tables and chairs with mirrors. A mirrored storage in the living room or dining is sure to add interest. And don't forget that your front door can have the same effect.
