About Teak Mirrors
Teak mirrors are amazing. They come in a variety of different shapes, sizes and styles. Depending on the specific mirror, they may have a rough, asymmetrical, organic quality or a very geometric, refined quality.
But, no matter what they look like, teak mirrors are built to last.
Teak is a very strong hardwood, native to Southeast Asia. For centuries, the craftspeople of that region have used it to create beautiful pieces of furniture.
It looks particularly great when used to frame a mirror. There’s something about the matted, natural quality of the material that we don’t see in other types of wood.
Designing Your Space with a Teak Mirror
One of the nice things about teak wood is that it’s a naturally beautiful material. When sanded and finished, it exudes an aura not found in other materials.
As a result, teak tends to work best in places that have an earthy, organic feel to them. Fans of boho design, for example, often gravitate toward teak mirrors. These mirrors sit very nicely next to other bohemian furniture like a paisley-printed couch or on top of some Persian rugs.
👍 Rule of Thumb Teak mirrors also look fantastic next to houseplants, as well. There’s something about this combination that can make any home feel like a nature getaway.
But, you don’t have to be a hippy to get away with having a teak mirror in your home. A lot of mid-century furniture is made from teak, as well. We often see teak coffee tables and dressers in mid-century homes, so a teak mirror definitely wouldn’t be out of place.
