A Custom Fabric Wrapped Mirror for an Interior Designer

At Striving Artists we create all sorts of custom mirror styles. Some are intended to be used as a bathroom mirror or vanity mirror. Others more decorative mirrors can be used to open up space in a living room or dinning room. Bedroom mirrors tend to be used as dressing mirrors. And sometimes mirrors are just used as decoration to fill in an area where art may not be suitable.

In this instance, an Interior Designer wanted something special for her client. She asked how she might get a zebra print on a frame without the cost of a hand finished faux paint design. Simply done, we wrapped a zebra print fabric on the outside of the frame. This is a design concept that is all too often overlooked. For a long time custom framers have used fabric wrapped liners that go inside of a frame. But, a wooden liner is not the only thing that can be wrapped in Custom Fabric. In the images shown, you will see that we started with a plain primed wooden frame. Custom Fabric was then bonded to a wrapped around the frame moulding. All edges were cut and wrapped, giving the piece a finished look from all angles. An enhancing fillet was installed in the frame opening to create contrast. We then fit a fresh new mirror into the frame. This special mirror is sure to be a beautiful enhancement to their custom designed room.
