Far more than just a functional piece of furniture, a well-selected mirror can help lift and transform a room. Mirrors introduce light and a sense of space to narrow areas and can form a central piece of artwork in a reception room.
Now your mirror can also function as a television screen! Foremost British mirror specialist, Overmantels has just unveiled its Overmantels Media range in response to a contemporary design dilemma. The reflective mirror glass gives way to a smart TV at the touch of the remote control.
The range represents the ultimate fusion of elegant craftsmanship and modern living: a concept that brings art, design, light, functionality and entertainment all in one, stunning mirror.
Overmantels is renowned for the mastery of its mirror craftsmanship resulting in beautiful handcrafted works that are true investment pieces.
Overmantels Media allows you to flip between having a beautiful mirror and a TV/entertainment screen at the touch of a button.
Overmantels’ founder, Seth Taylor, had the idea a number of years ago after decades of fitting his exquisite mirrors into stunning, carefully thought out homes. He wanted to find a solution that would re-capture the focal point in rooms in which entertainment viewing plays a role.
Televisions have become larger and larger – great for cinema quality viewing but they can detract from an otherwise elegant room. Whereas a mirror can help light up a room and work as a stand out focal-point of art.
“We worked hard to find a solution that ensures the end product complements Overmantels’ unique heritage in superb British craftsmanship,” explained Overmantels’ team. The range was unveiled late last year after two years’ in R&D. The highest specification glass available is used to ensure pixel-perfect viewing from an invisible media centre.
Customers can select from over 80 distinctive mirror styles, ranging from authentically recreated period classics (Regency, Victorian, Louise Philippe etc) to Art Deco to ultra-modern. Overmantels’ ranges come in standard sizes but customers can tailor their mirror’s dimensions, ornamentation or finish for a made-to-measure design that complements their individual style. Overmantels regularly work with architects and interior designers to create utterly bespoke mirrors – a service for which they are renowned. As their mirrors are made only upon a customer’s order there is plenty of scope for each customer to stamp their own style signature.
Over its history Overmantels has serviced clients ranging from David Collins and Nicky Haslam to Kylie Minogue and Adele. The dedication and expertise of their sales team aids customers to find the style and size that most complement the aesthetics of their room. Many of our customers are repeat orders – “for us this is the greatest compliment about our service and quality.”
