Such iconic pieces hold their own in historic architectural spaces, and as complementary pieces when arranged with art collections as well. Interior decorators frequently choose mirrors for extending space and light, and as focal points for curated vignettes, and placement might include entryways, above or on mantels, as an anchor or interest point for seating areas, and to enhance the splendor of dining areas.
