Form + Beyond is a London based home-ware brand that hand-crafts colourful graphic wall art & decorative accent pieces for interior spaces. Brett, the designer and master-craftsman behind the creation of this independent British company, has been turning heads with his attractive and original pieces. Amongst Form + Beyond’s most distinctive work is its series of designer mirrors featuring bold, retro slot-machine inspired graphics, such as classic cherries, lemons and melons. The rows of casino-fruits and lucky 7s are all meticulously hand-painted on the reverse of the mirror in vivid, intense colours. However, it isn’t just the striking images on the silvered, bevelled mirror which catch your eye. The hand-crafted oak frames themselves also demand your attention with their immaculate, hand-cut and applied two-toned geometric designs on the frame’s interior. In short, these mirrors are not merely functional objects, they are works of art as well. A beautiful demonstration of British craftsmanship at its best.
With its theme of slot-machine games, these Form + Beyond limited edition mirrors would make for the perfect addition to any games room, bar or modern interior where people meet, relax and enjoy a game of cards, darts or a round of billiards or pool. Form + Beyond mirrors are guaranteed to grab your attention and provide a stylish touch to the space. We love the bold, 80cm square “Black Cherries” mirror featuring a repeating pattern in black with deep, golden-yellow for the stalks and leaves– giving a unique twist to the classic red and green slot-machine cherries image. A further example of Form + Beyond’s take on a classic design is “Blue Lemons”. For smaller spaces, there are 43cm square mirrors, such as the splendid “Classic Lemons” which boasts a stunning geometric retro-gaming design on the interior of the solid oak frame and the “Classic Melons” with its lively and colourful design and hand-cut and applied triangular pattern on the frame’s interior.
Not only are these mirrors hand-made, they are all limited edition, with no more than 20 of the smaller mirrors ever to be made and only 10 of the larger mirrors. Each piece by this independent, high-end luxury brand is something special and would make for a delightful feature for stylish games rooms, cafes and bars as well as for the home of games enthusiasts or for those with an eye for great design.
Form + Beyond mirrors are available to purchase from Purling London. Please note that these show-stopping designer mirrors by Form + Beyond are all hand-made to order, so will require a lead time of around 2 to 4 weeks. Visit our shop to make an order.
