the captain's mirror

By: Natalie DiScala
The Captain's Mirror isn't new on the design scene but it's been on my lust list for a long time. The now iconic mirror, a nod to Jacques Adnet, who designed a similar mirror for Hermes in the mid-20th century, was designed in 2001 by Tyler Hays, owner of the design firm BDDW in Manhattan. The Adnet Mirror was reissued in 2011 by the Danish design house Gubi. I've always loved the design: a single circle of glass hung by a strong leather strap. But carrying a hefty price tag of $1,600, the original Captain's Mirror from BDDW costs a small fortune. Captain's Mirror, $1,600, BDDW The Adnet Mirror from Gubi, while cheaper, is still out of my price range. Adnet Circulaire, 879 euros, Gubi OK, so I can't afford either of these options. But I still want to get the look at home ... I have the perfect spot for a Captain's Mirror in my front foyer! So I've scoured the web to find some other options and here's what I've found: Jamie Young Hairhide Mirror, $550, Neiman Marcus Adnet Mirror, $1199, ShopHorne.com Threshold Round Captain's Mirror, $23.99, Target Eleanor Frameless Mirrors, $99, Pottery Barn Which one would you choose?
