Living in a busy, complicated world may have its advantages, but coming home to family is certainly the best part of the day. In an effort to redefine the home, people are choosing to decorate with items that hold meaning, such as large mission style wall mirrors. These decorative wall hangings draw inspiration from the southwest United States and early Spanish missions in California and are custom-made by our company, Mission Style Mirrors. The authentic appearance and original details have made these mirrors a genuine representation of the Arts and Crafts Movement. It was during this time that the mission style was made popular and continues to hold a place in the homes and hearts of its followers.

Here at Mission Style Mirrors, all of our pieces are constructed by hand and use the warm wooden tones of the early 1900s. Our wood is handpicked and includes nothing but quality, exotic varieties, including quarter-sawn white oak and curly cherry. In fact, it was white oak that was the first choice of mission style architects during the Arts and Crafts Movement, including the well-respected and admired Gustav Stickley. Stickley's style of minimal lines and beautiful craftsmanship popularized the mission style and his furniture is still highly regarded today. All of our large mission style wall mirrors capture the skill and detail of Stickley's work to offer customers a taste of authenticity that is marked by exceptional craftsmanship.

"Keystone" is probably one of the most enjoyable mirrors I have built. A little ingenuity when cutting the angles on the wedge shaped walnut made for a very solid perfect fit to the quarter-sawn white oak. You'll see what I mean when you look at the close up photo.

Charles Limbert would be proud of this one. He was an artisan at the turn of the century who incorporated angles into his work. I used quarter-sawn white oak and walnut on this design and stained it using several hand-rubbed coats of a minwax English Chestnut. Then I sprayed it using several coats of a satin shellac. This is a one of a kind piece that will stand out and draw attention in any room it is put in. You will never really own this mirror, you will simply cherish it for the next generation!

Black iron hooks give it a touch of class and believe me they are very useful. The gentle curves of the sides work nicely with the crisp rectangular face of the frame.

This mirror has a touch of modern decor blended in with a Stickley design. A very large wall mirror that is certain to draw attention in any room.
