This mirror uses the technique Trompe-l'œil (French for “deceive the eye”) to create the optical Illusion of 3D space. The door of this gateway has been angled to create a sense of perspective, making it appear that the door is opening away from you, welcoming you into the garden beyond. For that final touch of realism, the gate is finished with hinge and catch details.

With a little imagination, you can really believe that there’s a hidden garden waiting for you just beyond the mirror. This striking feature is sure to impress your friends and neighbours as they wonder where your new garden has suddenly sprung from.
Add Space and Light To Your Garden
Any garden mirror is great for adding a sense of space and light to smaller or darker gardens due to their ability to bounce light into darker corners. This mirror’s large size makes it perfect for adding some interest to long stretches of garden walls or throwing light into dreary corners.
This gorgeous mirror has been designed to be extra durable, making it perfect for becoming a garden feature for many years to come. The sturdy wooden frame is great for withstanding the English weather and will naturally age over time, helping it to blend in with your garden. This mirror uses real glass to ensure an almost perfect reflection. Glass is hard and durable, making it more resistant to scuffs and scratches than acrylic. This helps it to produce a faithful reflection for longer.
