Mirrors are one of the most effective design tools that can be used to great effect in a variety of ways. Whether you need to to open up a space, welcome visitors in an entry, or  add a beautiful element above a mantel or console, reflective surfaces can work wonders.  I noticed these round mirrors at High Point Market, and their versatility and beauty caught my attention. Big on brass, the warm metal adds a vintage feel, while nickel is a crisp choice that can work in casual settings to Deco ones. Here are the top 5 round mirrors that deserve a second look.

Emporium Home
With small rock crystal studs emanating from the brass frame in a radiant pattern, Emporium Home's glamorous round mirror brings the jewels into focus.

Regina Andrew's small round version with gold petals has a French 1940's vibe.

Celerie Kemble for Maitland Smith
Diminutive and darling, Celerie Kemble's scalloped white mirror for Maitland Smith with stud surround would look great displayed in multiples, or in an area that needs some reflection.

Making its debut at market, Michael S. Smith created a line of mirrors for Mirror Image. His oversized Celeste star has deco-overtones and a dramatic presence.

The Ollie Mirror from Arteriors is crisp and straightforward, with a smooth, unadorned nickel frame. I like it for its simplicity.
