Five Styles of Mirrors

Every home needs at least one mirror. Most have several. It’s very rare, and pretty strange, for a house to have none. With so much demand for mirrors comes a great deal of choice. Mirrors come in all shapes and sizes, from wall mirrors to standing mirrors, bathroom mirrors to bedroom mirrors.

With such a wide variety of mirrors to choose from, it can be quite overwhelming at times: Which style? Which size? Which design? Which colour? It’s enough to have you tearing your hair out!

As ever, the purpose of this blog is to inform and aid you in your search for furniture and carpets. So let’s make buying a mirror a touch easier. We’ll even be running 15% off all of our online mirrors throughout October!

Here are 5 styles of mirror you’ll find here at Modish Furnishing:

Plain

Old faithful; everyone needs a plain mirror in their life: Something that doesn’t stand out, and does its job without making a fuss about it. The plain mirror has been a staple of home life for generations and while some people might see having a plain mirror as dull or boring, we believe a good, traditional mirror is essential, even in the modern home.

Multi-Panelled

From plain to something a bit different: multi-panel mirrors are growing in popularity and are definitely in vogue right now. These types of mirrors make use of two or more completely separate panels which are aligned to make one full mirror. These mirrors tend to have a way in which they are supposed to be hung, but there’s really no reason you can’t put them up as you please!

This type of mirror gives you freedom and style, as well as a more unique and interesting design; we’re big fans down here at Modish Furnishing and have some great multi-panel mirrors available.

Ornate

The ornate category of mirrors definitely some of the most sophisticated we have on offer and are a superb way of building the character of a room. If you’re looking for classical elegance as the theme of a room, these mirrors are a wonderful way to achieve this.

Mirrors such as these are more suited to classical styled homes, but could certainly be made to work in a contemporary setting.

Showpiece

 

Something a bit more striking for the home. A showpiece mirror is something designed to catch the eye and turn a few heads. Designs on these can be anything from floral to oblique and can look absolutely fantastic. A superb way to add something different to a room.

We do eye-catching very well down here at Modish Furnishing, and we have a soft spot for the unique. We hope you’ll like our showpiece mirrors as much as we do!

Circular

Hang on, shouldn’t these come under plain? Well, not quite! Some circular mirrors are quite plain, and will fall under that earlier category. However, the circular mirrors we’re talking about here are the more unusual circular designs. Mirrors which give you that extra panache you’re looking for, without being too ‘out there’ or over the top.  

From swirls to sunbursts, there’s something for everyone’s taste in the circular pool of mirrors!

 

 

So go on then, which style do you prefer? You can view our full range of mirrors here, or give us a call on 0141 429 3541 to speak to one of our sales experts.

All New Ranges from Kylie Minogue

Here at Modish Furnishing, we believe we are Kylie Minogue’s number one fans. Maybe not of her music, but you won’t find anyone in Glasgow who stocks as much of her At Home Ranges of bedding as cushions as us. This brings us to some news…

KYLIE MINOGUE HAS FIVE NEW RANGES AND THEY’RE ALL AVAILABLE TO BUY ONLINE NOW!

New Ranges of Bedding by Kylie Minogue in Glasgow

Sorry for shouting, but Kylie Minogue’s at Home Collections really bring that out of us. Kylie Minogue has once again delivered with her range of bedding and soft furnishings; ranging from bed-linens to cushions to extravagant throws.

These five new ranges are the pinnacle of luxury home furnishings, allowing you to take your home decor to another level of luxury.

Let’s take a look at the ranges:

Mila Bedding by Kylie Minogue

Mila by Kylie Minogue

The show-stopping Mila range is tailor made to create an impact in the bedroom. Lavish panels of tiny sequins come in rich tones of praline, sparkling along the edges of the pillows and across the satin duvet, fading from rich praline to silver.

This range is described as “the ultimate in star quality” and couples these gorgeous designs with the magnificent Mila throw to create a dazzling effect. Together with a selection of gorgeous embellished cushions, the Mila creates a spectacular bedroom scene.

Helene Bedding by Kylie Minogue

Helene by Kylie Minogue

The Helene range is so good looking it wouldn’t’ be out of line to describe it as art: A delicate web of silver sequins spiral across nude satin in this exquisite design. The classic Kylie Minogue Oyster is used to perfection in this blend of refined sparkle and calming colour. The diamante trims deliver the sparkle, while the Oyster coloured bed linens will help to guide you gently to sleep.

The Helene also comes with its own cushions and throw, helping to complete the look. The crushed velvet Modena oyster and pearl velvet Belina cushions, each with diamante trims, further enhance this dreamy effect.

Atmosphere Bedding by Kylie Minogue

Atmosphere by Kylie Minogue

The Atmosphere is an Ivory masterpiece and potentially one of the best looking in this new range. This stunning bedding features rows of pleated velvet, combined with a sumptuous ivory satin which is embellished using sparkling diamantes.

We recommend adding the quilted crushed velvet Mirella throw, with its own subtle touch of sparkle, to enhance the look of this already delicious bedding.

Glitter Fade Bedding and Cushions by Kylie Minogue

Glitter Fade by Kylie Minogue

Now I don’t know if I should be saying this, but the Glitter Fade collection is definitely my favourite of all the Kylie Minogue at Home ranges. So much for impartiality! But who can blame me, just look at these photos!

Combining with the glittery sequins, the ombre coloured linens create a sparkling effect and allows it to easily make a statement of opulence and luxury.

The design continues on to pillows and cushions alike, creating a dazzling bedroom display. And it’s easy to forget the soft furnishings, but they’re able to handle themselves in terms of pure glamour!

Complete the look with the coordinating throw and cushions. The Boudoir cushion in soft printed velvet is scattered with a trio of diamante brooches.

Darcey Bedding by Kylie Minogue

Darcey by Kylie Minogue

And last but certainly not least, the Darcey range is another of Kylie Minogue’s ranges which utilizes her signature Oyster tones to create an alluring effect of lavishness.

Kylie Minogue implores you to “embrace your feminine side” with the Darcey bed linen, describing it as exquisite. These design feature a myriad of tiny sequins traversing across delicate embroidery, set on soft oyster satin. This elegant design continues on to the throw and cushions; the latter enhanced with pearls and diamantes.

Something for everyone from Kylie Minogue at home Collections

The thing we love most about the Kylie Minogue bedding collections is that there really is something for all tastes. No matter what kind of bedroom furniture you’re working with, no matter what type of person it is sleeping on the bed sheets. With this in mind, there’s enough variety within the ranges for everyone to be satisfied.

It seems like these classy colour schemes, extravagant and glitzy styles have everything.

You can browse the Kylie Minogue section on our website here… or alternatively you can call us on 0141 429 3541 if you have any questions.

We maintain a respectable stock size in our showroom, which can be viewed at 82 Seaward Street, Glasgow, G41 1HJ.

 

It’s Not Too Early to Talk About…

Here we go. You’ve already started seeing the ‘X amount of days until’ posts on Facebook, shops have quietly began rolling out their seasonal stock and the Christmas buzz is slowly beginning to gain traction.

While some people can’t bear thinking about Christmas and its expensive implications (as well as awkward forced family reunions!), we in the furniture industry must insist upon the early Christmas chat.

Getting prepared for Christmas is an essential part o

f the process, especially for those of you kind-hearted and welcoming enough to take on the role of host each year; while you slave away all day in the kitchen, the rest of the family are lounging around, eating chocolate, drinking mulled wine and enjoying Christmas TV– you are the true MVPs and we salute you for putting up with the rest of us year after year!

Chanel Dining Table

Much of your hard work and preparation is overlooked and underappreciated, but we understand just how much goes into it, and not just planning, preparing, cooking and presenting the all so important Christmas dinner.

Aspects such as the decor, table setting and critically the dining table are parts of the process which need to be thought of well in advance. That’s why we’re here to show you some of the best dining tables we have on offer in the weeks running up until Christmas.

Picking up a new dining table is an excellent way to wow the family and bring everyone together this Christmas. A new dining table can change the entire atmosphere of a meal, and should be somewhere you cannot wait to sit down at.

Tangle Slim White Marble Dining Table

It may only be September, but now is the perfect time to get planning your Christmas purchases. Some of our best dining tables are hand built and brought in from premiere manufacturers in Italy, so by putting an order in now, we’ll be able to guarantee you’ll be sat around your new dining table before Christmas.

So here we are, helping to prepare you for Christmas and to aid you in avoiding the mad December rush that befalls so many unprepared shoppers! No one wants to be caught up in the madness of December shopping, much better to prepare now and avoid it!

With our unique range of dining tables, ranging from outright extravagant luxury to designs which are more refined and simplistic, you’re spoiled for choice when it comes to dining tables at Modish Furnishing. From rustic wooden tables to stunning marble options, there’s something for everyone and every room setting.

We’re a flexible bunch at Modish though, so if you see a dining table and chairs you like that don’t come in a set, give us a call and we’ll be happy to work something out for you.

If you’re looking for a new dining table this Christmas, remember, you need to get in early to be able to guarantee delivery in time for Christmas!

New Winter Bedroom Ranges

Winter is coming. At least that’s what Game of Thrones has been telling us for the last seven years, (20+ if you read the books!). It’s now September, the nights are dimming, the path the sun takes through the sky is dipping ever lower, and the temperature is dropping.

Not the most enjoyable time of year for most, with the vast majority of people dreading the cold days, perishing nights, lack of Vitamin D and the risk of snow and slush. It can be an awfully dispiriting time, but it can also be a positive time, depending on how you view it.

Cosy nights in, mugs of hot chocolate, sumptuously cosy sweaters, a new scarf! The cold, dark nights needn’t be all bad. For this reason, we’ve picked out the types of bedrooms to get you through the tough winter months.

These are the types of Bedrooms you’ll enjoy being cooped up in during those horrendous rain storms. Places to relax and listen to the wind as it blows a hoolie outside your window. We’ve even specially chosen each bedroom as it features an LED headboard, to save you getting up to turn the big light on!

So without further adieu here are the six best bedrooms to help you through the winter:

The Davoli    

The ultra-modern Davoli bedroom is made by one of our more exclusive suppliers, based in Italy. And just as you’d expect from Italian furniture designers, the Davoli is stunning to gaze upon. An all white design is given deep, dark edges which both refine and enhance its classy style. Its showpiece attraction, though, is in the sparkling headboard design, which really sets the piece off.

The diamante design on the headboard is accompanied by an LED light for some extra shine during the dark winter months, making this bedroom set striking, memorable and especially useful when you want to do some late night reading! The bedroom set comes with a four door wardrobe, three drawer chest, bedside tables and a mirror: all the bedroom furniture you could ever need.

The Jessica

Jessica Bedroom

Once again coming from Italy, the Jessica bedroom set is the perfect way to bring a refined and subtle style to the bedroom.

High quality whites and gorgeous deep charcoal gloss hues is fused with beautiful chrome handles and legs to create something quietly spectacular.

Visually, this bedroom set is a treat on the eye, and this isn’t represented anywhere as well as in the headboard.  A luminous LED light is partnered with subtle diamante crystals to add a spark to the bedroom and really make it stand out.

The curvy nature of the LED headboard design is in direct contrast with the straight edge nature of the rest of the bedroom, making the opus of the bed stand out even more.

Featuring a four door wardrobe, three drawer chest, bedside tables and a mirror, this set has it all.

Isabel Deluxe & Isabel Supreme

Isabel Deluxe

Two bedrooms cut from the same cloth but with one vital difference. Both Isabel bedrooms come with two bedsides, a three drawer chest and a four door wardrobe, all of which are the same for both the Deluxe and the Supreme versions of the set.

The main difference in the case of this bedroom set is the headboard: the Deluxe features a more luxurious padded headboard, to help gentle ease you off to sleep; while the Supreme has a more hard-hitting, striking design.

Deluxe Padded Headboard

Think of the Deluxe and Supreme as Ying and Yang, one for the comfort lovers and one for the people who want to turn a few heads. The LED lights in these headboards, especially the Deluxe, look fantastic: Not too in your face, but still with enough of an impact to really make these beds stand out.

Which one do you prefer?

Isabel Supreme

The Micol Bedroom

Ahh the Micol, could you really be any more beautiful? This stunning bedroom throws out the rulebook and injects distinct patterns throughout its design, even going so far as to use its curved stylings to the mirror on the four door wardrobe.

The bedroom mixes lush creams with intense greys in order to create a look that is not only unique, but that will also catch the eye. High gloss has never looked better than it does on this Micol Bedroom Set.

As with the other sets in this range, an LED light is featured, as well as a four door wardrobe, three drawer chest and two bedsides.

The Sharon Bedroom

Last but certainly not least is the Sharon. This might just be the most glamourous of them all… with sparkling cracked effects used to border the bed, wardrobe and mirror, as well as beautiful chrome handles, this white gloss bedroom set is simply spectacular.

Of all the headboards looked at in this blog, Sharon’s is right up there in the running in the “Best of” awards category. Unusual and distinct, its design almost resembles a crack on a sheet of glass or on a vast expanse of arctic ice.

The ‘crack’ is laden with diamante crystals which shimmer and shine, even without the in-built LED light!

Bedroom Sets at Modish Furnishing

Each of the bedroom sets listed come with a bed, wardrobe, bedsides, chest and mirror, but can also be ordered as individual items; get in touch with us at 0141 429 3541 or [email protected] to enquire about buying items individually.
