An ideal resource for anyone designing or re-creating period rooms or studying historical aesthetics, Mirrors looks at the ever-changing forms and uses of mirrors as major elements and points of emphasis in domestic interiors in the West. With a glimpse of their antecedents in classical antiquity and western Asia, the book traces a path from Louis XIV's Hall of Mirrors at Versailles and the royal and noble interiors that emulated it to mirrors in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century European and New World interiors and high-chic applications in twentieth- and twenty-first-century rooms. Mirror frames and furniture incorporating mirrors are also considered.
