I haven’t done one of my “I think I’ve Seen You Before” posts in a long, long time. But, the other day my husband called me en route from one client site to another….and wanted to know if I had time for a quick lunch. So, we met up at a great little Mexican place (I seriously am dreaming about my meal) and as I was leaving I drove by Z Gallerie who had this mirror on display in the window.
Z Gallerie Dynasty Mirror
Oddly enough, I had just been browsing for a mirror for our powder room the night before and had seen this mirror in the catalog, offered in a red and a white option. (Often large companies will do an exclusive color….not sure if that is the case with this mirror or not…..but I don’t see black in the catalog. They will do custom though so who knows?) Incidentially, Horchow and Gumps appear to sell this mirror in the red and the white.
One of the contenders for my powder room is the below mirrored pagoda piece. Horchow also sells it retail….and with free shipping….it isn’t a bad deal at all.

They also make this next mirror, Gumps had a gold leaf version that is listed as an “exclusive.”

This company has a vast catalog…and I am just highlighting the ones I’ve seen out in the retail market…..there are lots more I recognize, but these are the “fun” ones. Incidentially, in addition to the mirrored pagoda above, below is another mirror that I am considering for my powder room (I want a Venetian mirror look). The “mirrored key” mirror is probably my favorite at the moment. It is shown horizontally in the catalog but I’ve flipped it here to show how I’d hang it….sorry it looks a bit funny as a result.
What do you think?
See anything you like?
PS–Thanks to commenter Todd I was able to order the Venetian Key mirror through Gilt where they were offering it for a great deal (better than designer pricing). They also had the top chinoiserie mirror in blue! If you are reading this on the day posted….check out the sale over at Gilt that is about to end…lots of great mirrors!
Garnet Hill Spello Rug
Trans-Ocean Spello Arabesque Rug
This rug is available in five colorways (orange not shown) and is available in a number of standard sizes as well as custom capabilities if you are willing to wait. (See here for standard sizes.) This is the same company who makes the popular Ballard Designs Le Poeme Rug.
I have just ordered a sample of the yellow colorway as a contender for Maddie’s room. The price point is great (vs. Harry’s rug that will need to be with him for MANY years) and I love that it is indoor/outdoor….meaning it should be durable for lots of little girl play! I’ll let you know what I decide. This company has a fabulous selection (search their online catalog and you are sure to see many of the popular styles from the catalogs), great customer service and completely affordable pricing. What’s not to love?
Thanks to one of my newest blog subscribers, Kristin, I now know the source of the Anthropologie wallpaper I blogged about last week.
Graham & Brown “Kentmere” Wallpaper
It is available online in four colorways through Graham and Brown.
This one was easy to spot for me as one of my favorite bloggers, Janell from Isabella & Max Rooms, recently used the fabric to create pendant lights in her kitchen.

Ballard Designs sells the fabric by the yard under the name “Domino” and it looks like it is available in “Green” and “Chocolate.”
What do you think, does it look similar to Robert Allen “Cats Cradle?”
And, while I can certainly help you purchase this fabric (contact me for pricing), Janell was recently kind enough to share an incredible discount source for this fabric, located here. This price is below my designers’ net pricing! What a bargain!
PS– Please do not forget to enter my little giveaway…..I’ll draw tonight and ship tomorrow!
For the latest installment in this series, I’ve spotted a great trio of rustic iron and wood tables over at Crate & Barrel. The “Atacama” table is available as a coffee table, side table, and console table.
And, it looks like these tables are manufactured in Chile by Andres International, Inc. The US corporate headquarters are in Boulder, Colorado with a distribution center in High Point, NC. The company was founded in 1988 and has grown substantially, now manufacturing out of a 70,000 sq ft. state of the art factory in Santiago, Chile.
Several years ago I purchased a mirror from Crate & Barrel from this manufacturer and have been quite pleased with the quality and craftsmanship.
For more information on this, or any other item you see on my blog, please contact me.
Hoping to make this a regular weekly feature for a while, I’ve got another Ballard Designs source for you. Below is an image of the popular “Le Poeme” rug from the Ballard Designs website/catalog.
And, here is the “Spello Poem” rug from “The Trans Ocean Group.”
Visit here to see the various sizes available. Also, the bonus of buying directly from the wholesaler is that this rug is available in custom sizes as well (but only in black or brown, the blue and green are exclusive to Ballard Designs.) I plan to do another post on this great rug company in the near future….but let this find be a small taste of some great rugs at very affordable prices. For more information, please contact me.
Do you ever wonder about the sources behind your favorite design catalog items? I am going to start a new periodic feature on my blog highlighting what I believe to be the sources behind some of the more popular design catalog products. I’ll file them under the category “Yes, I think I’ve Seen You Before.”
So, to kick off this little series, I thought I would start with a favorite….the “Ogden Mirror” as seen in the Ballard Designs Catalog. I’ve got this mirror (purchased from the wholesaler) hanging over a console table in my upstairs hallway.
Ballard Designs Ogden Mirror
And, here is the mirror featured on the Uttermost website. Uttermost sells wholesale/to the trade only. Feel free to contact us if you want to compare pricing….
