Who's the finest of them all? However much time you spend in front of the mirror, make sure your looking glass is a feature in itself

1. Shades of whimsy

If you're looking for something a little out of the ordinary, this one-metre-wide, wall-mounted, sunglass-shaped mirror by British brand Thabto should do the trick.

2. Classic lines

This elegantly shaped Venetian-style mirror will introduce a touch of old-school charm into any space. Standing 132cm high, with pretty floral patterning, it would look as good in a contemporary-styled interior as it would in a more classic scheme.

3. Natural look

This teardrop-shaped mirror by Great British Designs is as stylish as it is sustainable. The frame is made from matt lacquered cork, while the hanging peg is made from ash, with a matt lacquered finish. It comes in two sizes but we'd go with the large 50cm by 60cm version.

4. Sea of inspiration

The Waffle Mirror by Filipino designer Vito Selma was designed to evoke "the natural ebb and flow of the ocean with its undulating, lightly finished cherry wood frame". We love its subtlety - and the fact that it is eye-catching without being overwhelming.
