Modern wooden mirrors
PAROTAS brings contemporary design to their wooden mirrors by incorporating the striking parota wood in minimalistic ways. PAROTAS’ wooden mirror designs emphasise the grainy parota wood in accent features and frameless mirror collections, as well as in complete wood framed mirror designs.
Contractors and home designers can conceptualize mirror designs incorporating a range of modern elements, such as iron, chrome, bronze and golden finishes, and unique techniques such as luminescence and carbonized wood. Functional features, such as hidden storage or shelves, can also be made to clients’ specifications.
PAROTAS seals their wood mirrors using a blend of natural oils, which highlights the striking parota grain and retains the wood’s natural lustre over time with minimal maintenance. The wood’s neutral colouring also makes parota wooden mirrors easy to match with a varied range of modern living room furniture and bedroom furniture.
Wood framed mirrors
Designers can choose from planed wood framed mirrors or wooden mirror frames incorporating natural edges. For wood framed mirrors using live edge wood, contractors and designers have more room to incorporate parota’s creamy sapwood that is uniquely demarcated from the golden-brown heartwood. The spectacular natural designs allow designers to conceptualise wooden mirrors using the parota tree as inspiration.
Round wood mirrors
PAROTAS’ round wood mirror collections focus on understated stylistic features to maintain a level of contemporary elegance. Due to the large size of the parota tree, round wood mirrors can also be created from single, cross-sectional cuts from 3–6.5 feet (1–2m) in diameter, allowing a full circular live edge of creamy sapwood. If available, contractors and home designers can choose their own live edge wood from our stock.
PAROTAS brings elegance to their standing mirror collections with sleek lines and functionality. Parota wood can be cut to clients’ specifications to include both the creamy sapwood and golden-brown heartwood, or using only the darker heartwood.
Using a burn technique to create carbonized wood, parota can be worked into exclusive black mirror designs. Wooden black mirrors rely on the charcoal glisten to attract attention, alongside sleek design elements.
Wooden mirrors, sustainably sourced
All of PAROTAS’ wooden mirrors are sourced using certified wood from Mexican providers who work under government environmental schemes. Parota is a fast-growing tree that thrives in the tropical and humid climates of Mexico and Central America, making it a sustainable choice for producing wooden mirrors, even for large-scale design projects. Parota’s rapid and large growth also makes it a lighter hardwood, almost half the dried weight of oak, which is ideal for large wooden mirrors and wooden wall mirrors. The parota tree – also known as guanacaste – is not listed as a threatened species and commonly used in reforestation.
PAROTAS can produce individual and multiple wooden mirrors from our collections, or to meet the specifications of contractors and home designers. Contact Parotas to enquire about design options, sizes and prices. Parotas also arranges a door-to-door service, including international delivery and exports.
