Danish duo Julie Hugau and Andrea Larsson make category-defying designs under the brand name Reflections Copenhagen. “The idea is to create pieces that add some decorative embellishment to a space,” says Larsson, “so we designed a collection of handmade mirrors. Our homes, like our clothes, are a way of defining who we are, and just as we may select a brooch to add interest to our clothes, people hang a mirror on their walls as a way of adding a special element.”

Their art deco-inspired Eye of the Tiger mirror (from £795) would certainly be a smile-raising focal point. Constructed from carefully cut pieces of 4mm faceted mirror glass – silver for the white of the eye, bronze for the iris and black for the pupil and extravagant lashes – it is a piece of light-reflecting theatre. Eye of the Tiger is proving popular in both Denmark and the UK – particularly within that sure-fire barometer of future trends, the hotel market. “We’ve had this quite serious look in our interiors for some time now,” Larsson says. “People are ready for something more playful.”
