One of our all-time favorite stores for fashion and home decor items is Anthropologie. It definitely brings that romantic aesthetic, not only with the fashion brands sold at the retailer, but also in the design of the house. Anthropologie buyer Keith Johnson tells Oprah“I think Anthropologie is such a tactile experience. We really like being an experiential place. You can go there, really have fun, buy nothing, and walk out with an idea or an emotion or an inspiration.” We love that because , as any Anthro enthusiast knows, the brand can be expensive.
We can’t get enough of them Shimmering Primrose Mirror, an elegant Baroque-style frame with exquisite detailing that comes in multiple hues including gilded gold, silver, antique black, and verdigris. The mirror is incredibly versatile and can be hung on the wall, placed on a dresser, or placed in a convenient spot on the floor. There is, however, a downside. Depending on the size, it can cost between $548 and $1,598.
On the positive side, as Electronic News notes, there is most likely a dupe there. While the release shows several in the home space, including candles, vases and glassware, the Primrose Mirror wins us over. If you want to achieve the look of these popular mirrors from Anthropologie, there is hope after all. Keep scrolling to see more dupes we love and find out how you can get the Anthro look for less.
We love this find at Kirkland’s Home
The luxurious Burgundy wooden mirror decorated with golden scrolls Kirkland’s Home is so good! It looks so much like Anthropologie’s Gleaming Primrose Mirror that we had to do a double take. What we love is that it’s a floor mirror, but it can also be hung. It has a great arch shape and measures 25.5 inches in length and 68 inches in height.
Although there is no color variety, you can opt for the rich hue of antique gold. It looks like it could be made of craft resin, iron, and engineered hardwood, like Anthropologie’s famous primrose mirror, but in reality, it’s made of wood, which makes it lighter – and we think that’s actually a bonus. The mirror weighs 39.2 pounds and it would be easier to move it around your room to find the ultimate lighting for all your selfies.
The most expensive dupe goes to…
The Amelie standing mirror in gold from high-end brand Arhaus is absolutely stunning, at just over $1,000, while the 7-foot Anthropologie style is just over $1,500. This particular mirror is inspired by French design, of course, and has all the ornate details we love. Instead of being wooden, the frame of this mirror is made of durable materials including iron and resin, similar to Anthro’s design.
But because of that, it’s also heavier, weighing over 70 pounds, so you may need professional help to move it. It is large and measures 41 inches in length and 74.5 inches in height, so you get a massive mirror; great for checking out your outfits, if we do say so ourselves. As for the texture and feel, the company notes that it’s distressing and looks like an antique, which we like. Unlike the original, it only comes in gold, but it does give off a metallic finish, which is great!
Our Favorite Anthropologie Mirror Dupe
One of our favorite little design secrets is shopping in the teen section of Pottery Barn! Not only are furniture and decor items generally cheaper, but you’d be surprised how stylish the furniture looks, so tell us about this savvy little secret. We found our favorite Anthropologie Gleaming Primrose Mirror dupe here: Ornate filigree mirrors are perfect replicas for expensive mirrors.
A wall hung option is smaller at 24.75 inches by 32.75 inches for $299, but we suggest opting for the floor mirror for the ultimate look. This one measures 24 inches by 60 inches and costs $499. Right on budget! Plus, there are a variety of other products to buy if you’re looking to emulate the glamorous look that would suit a living room, bedroom or office, from chandeliers to faux fur chair covers.
