I needed a touch of gold for an otherwise all gray and dark brown room and this mirror fit the bill perfectly! It's surprisingly beautiful and well-crafted considering the inexpensive price. It has a bit of an exotic flair to it and lends a nice, warm glow to the whole room. I love how it adds depth and texture above our fireplace, too, thanks to its three-dimensional design; it creates such a lovely focal point. Just a few observations: the metal "arms" bend pretty easily (but can be bent back into place with no problem) so don't be alarmed if it's a little warped looking when it first arrives or if it gets bent a little while you're lifting and hanging it. They're lightweight but not overly flimsy. The gold color is actually pretty mottled (I guess that's what "antique brass" means) and not too shiny which is what I wanted but if you're hoping for something more solid gold and shiny-metallic then this may not be for you. I've included photos of the mirror in both natural sunlight and at nighttime under regular overhead lighting so you can get a better idea of what its true color is. Lastly, the mirror has two openings in the back for hanging and I recommend using both to give it stability since it's pretty wide and thus a bit wobbly/unsteady/unwieldy otherwise.
The mirror is stunning and gives off nice lighting. The lighting has a motion sensor to turn the light on and off. However, it cannot be used as the main source of light since it does not connect to the switch. This may confuse guests who reach for the switch to turn on the light if the mirror is the only light source. Other than that it is really unique and compliments the bathroom.
I have purchased many things from Overstock and this ranks right up there in the top three of my favorite...maybe even #1. This is a gorgeous, well-made and significant mirror. It is very heavy and it will be perfect on a corner wall where I have little lighting. I wanted something to brighten as well as fill the space. The bevel, beading and the color of the frame really sets this mirror apart than any I have seen. I like that the beading is a champagne color...not gold and not silver...in between. It works with everything in my room. I wish I could post a picture of how nice this mirror is. I am very, very pleased. Can't wait to hang it.
