Too much of a good thing can lead to exhaustion. Just like one too many margaritas on a Thursday night might have you reconsidering your love for tequila, too many midcentury dressers and chairs might make you want to write off the décor style forever. But here's the thing: The 1950s were also the birthplace of many wonderful things, such as circular fireplaces, floor-to-ceiling windows, and a myriad of other furniture designs we still love today.

One thing we're definitely still digging is midcentury modern mirrors. Whether you are looking at original pieces or reproductions, modernist designers had a knack for turning a functionalist object into a work of art—and mirrors were no exception. What's more, a majority of their mirrors were round—something we still appreciate today. Featuring sunburst branches, bamboo petals, or lacquered frames, here are our favorite midcentury modern mirrors.
