The simple four sided design fits flush with the straight lines of a room meaning rectangular mirrors are perfect for aligning with existing wall hangings, matching with window designs and doorways.

Our favourites include shield shaped mirrors, perfect for those of a royal persuasion, and portrait shaped mirrors where the frame is often given a delicate floral design to depict that of a prestigious portrait frame.
