ARE MIR­ROR-BACKED WALL LIGHTS A THING OF THE PAST?

Homes & Gardens - - ADVICE -

I’ve looked for, but not found, mir­ror-backed wall sconces to re­flect light around our dark hall. Does any com­pany still make them? AH, Perth.

Wall lights backed with mir­ror were com­mon in the can­dle­light cen­turies and it is still an idea that works. The Sandown wall light backed with mir­ror, H35cm, comes in matt black (be­low), £93.50, or an­tiqued brass, £101, lamp­shade op­tional, Jim Lawrence, 01473 826685, jim-lawrence.co.uk. Vaughan, 020 7349 4600,

vaughan­designs.com, stocks a great va­ri­ety of mir­ror-backed wall lights, among them, the grand Swedish Gilt­wood two-arm, H49.5cm, £638; the con­tem­po­rary Stan­dish, £342; with the Tole & Mir­ror, H47cm, in sil­ver gilt or tor­toise­shell fin­ishes, £536, the most ver­sa­tile. The Mir­ror lamp from The English Lamp

Com­pany, 01603 460581, en­glish­lam­p­com­pany.com, comes ei­ther with a curved or­nate edge, H36cm, £384, or ob­long bev­elled mir­ror, H33cm, £348, both ver­sions with a slim brass frame.
