18 Mirrors That Look Nothing Like Mirrors
There are many things that can make a mirror insanely modern. It can be as simple as having a sleek and streamlined design, or it can be that the form of the mirror has been completely re-imagined: segmented, multiplied, or even tricked out with tech. Today’s modern mirrors are nothing like your grandma’s home decor. Check out these 18 fascinating reflectors that fit the bill.
