Cheval & Floor Standing Mirrors
Find stunning floor standing and cheval mirrors at Mirror Shop. Floor standing mirrors are perfect for creating the illusion of space and they also spread light around a room. Cheval mirrors make a wonderful feature in a bedroom and can be used for dressing, because they are long enough to see your entire outfit. These mirrors come in many different styles from ultra modern lipstick style free standing mirror to a more classical full length white arched mirror.
What is a Cheval Mirror?
Cheval mirrors are traditionally long free standing mirrors that are attached to a frame so that they can tilt to provide the correct angle for the viewer. Designed as dressing mirrors in 18th century France, they stand on the floor and traditionally had four feet - hence the name cheval meaning horse in French.
Cheval mirrors are incredibly stylish and echo times gone by. Ideal if you want the mirror to be a focal point in a room and are looking for an elegant addition. As people are all different heights, this makes the cheval mirror a great option if you will want to adjust the angle of the mirror or share the mirror with others.
Useful Floor Standing Mirrors
An advantage of floor standing mirrors is that they are portable. So if you have a room where you need the furniture to be flexible, then a free standing mirror is ideal. Say you want to pull out a guest bed which would make a wall mirror inaccessible; a floor mirror can be lifted and moved easily until it is ready to be returned. When you have a special occasion or event that requires a mirror, for example a gathering of friends getting ready for a night out or the preparations for a wedding, it is useful to be able to relocate the mirror where it is needed most or where there is more space for the guests to use it.
We have a wonderful collection of cheval and floor standing floor mirrors that will look the part in either a contemporary or traditional interior.
