Arched Panelled Mirror: A Softer Shape

This wall panelled with arched-top rectangular mirrors caught my eye. While the rest of the space may not be to my taste,  these mirrors illustrate the power of repetition paired with restraint, yes? The clean lines, a simple arch, no muntins (the decorative dividers in windows and mirrors), paired with a decadent metal edge offer a very versatile piece. They create a linear effect, stretching the ceiling height, but the arches soften the shape. Grouped closely, they visually read as one element in this living room.

In a smaller space, the Abate Slatted Mirror from Anthro has a similar effect. It's huge, and brings a layer of patina into a more modern space, and it's clean lines update more traditional styling as well.

What do you think - time to replace that ubiquitous sunburst mirror, lol? Is this a fresher look?
