Now to gently transition from the Bubblicious madness last week, let me continue to bore you with my crazy shopping extravaganza – loosely titled ‘my yearly birthday bonanza’!
Not only did I score my String shelving at Modern Metropolis last week…and my Belgian bubble-wannabe…but also I saw an amazing, monstrously huge, round mirror by Durlston Designs which I couldn’t get out of my head. It is just like the one below:
When I say this is large - in terms of a table-top dressing mirror it is gargantuan – nearly 2 feet across!
I love the over-sized-ness of it. It is solid, heavy metal… and the deep lip of the frame…sigh.
There went the other kidney.
I have tried googling these to find out a bit more about the designers, etc, but only find listings for other mirrors who list them as being from the 1960s by Owen F. Thomas for Durlston Designs in Surrey.
I can’t find anything on the company or the designer. Anyone have any info?
They are gorgeous, tho….sort of like mirror bubbles!
Look at the ones with teak:
Even in red!
Wiping the drool of my chin. I am amazing how contemporary they feel. You can imagine them selling at SCP in Shoreditch for £300!
The metal ones are beauties as well. This one looks like a smaller dresser mirror:
And how about this one, similar to mine? Love the legs!
They look like they might have been some sort of industrial or display mirrors.
Fecking fabulous, once again.
I am now officially out of space and selling things off on ebay! Stay tuned for Winston’s retail storefront.
No. Really. ;-D
