These mirrors frames are based on an original design by the Omega Workshops. The Omega were a loose group of artists based in England between 1914 - 19. They formed part of the larger better known Bloomsbury Group. While their works were always very artistic they would definately not have seen themselves in the Art Deco style. But they did produce some overtly Deco designs as early as 10 years before the Paris Exhibition of 1925.
These striking new wall mirrors were inspired by an Omega Workshops rug design, by Roger Fry, for the Cadena Cafe c.1915. As with most of the Omega & Bloomsbury style painted furniture the wood was just a flat surface to be decorated. At this stage Fry was buzzing with ideas, and the design reveals African influences & anticipates Art Deco patterns & colours, with the jazzy zigzag patterns. Shown below are some colour options you could have. We can make this to several sizes, within reason, so long as the proportions are kept. The mirrors can be hung landscape or portrait. Made to order.
