The Mirror I Bought Online, and Really Can’t Believe My Luck

In the past year, when I started to (finally) add some much-needed decor to my home, one thing I definitely wanted was a big mirror to reflect light and open up the room.

One thing I definitely did not want was to overextend my budget buying a big mirror.

So, the research began. And as luck would have it, I found a mirror that turned out to be so perfect, in both looks and price, that I ended up buying two. I put one in my kitchen area and one in my guest bathroom.

I'm talking about the Umbra Hub Wall Mirror. It's built with a rubber frame – which might sound odd, but it totally works — and comes in a variety of sizes. It's a simple design, yet makes a strong statement. Kind of like a supporting character who emerges in a larger narrative — and you can't stop thinking about her.

The largest size is 37 inches and goes for about $116, with the smaller sizes running at a lower price.

Oh, and wondering what it looks like in my space? Here it is in my kitchen ...

And here ...
