Tuesday's Top 10- Eglomise

Tuesday- March 9, 2010

Today's Top 10 List is a favorite of mine, eglomise furniture. Today we are featuring the Top Eglomise pieces for the home. I am always drawn to mirrored pieces of furniture! The technique of eglomise dates back to the late Antiquity & was translated into early Christian tradition. The term eglomise is a process where the backside of the glass is gilded with gold or metal leaf. It has appeared in paintings, furniture, jewelry, & home accents. Here are my Top 10 pieces of Eglomise for your home:
10) Art Deco Screen
A beautiful gold & silver 2 panel screen. A wonderful accent to any corner!
9) Antique Mirror Chest of Drawers
A night stand? entry chest? or maybe just a great accent in your room? The proportions of this chest are great for so many spaces!

8) Parker Webbed Sconce
This striking web design is inspired by the French 30's. A pattern that often occurs in
neo-classical decoration & has been transformed into this dimensional sconce!
7) Perlini Mirror
Using an antiqued mirror in your room gives it an elegant presence!
6) Pagoda Etagere
This etagere has magnificent Chinese influences! It features antique mirrored shelves, resting upon stylized bamboo posts.
5) Chest of Drawers
You don't see this application everyday! I love the mirrored inlay on this mahogany bow front chest.
4) Eglomise Cocktail Table
A cocktail table is a wonderful way to add the the glamour of mirror into your home!
3) Arlington Bed
A wonderful statement in any bedroom!

2) Console
This eglomise console table is a superb table for any hall!
1) Bar Cabinet
A truly stunning piece of furniture! This cabinet is a great multifunctional piece in any home! I think this piece is as beautiful open as it is closed. The antique mirror on the inside makes it oh so glamorous!
