Pressed Metal not just for ceilings!

I've been away for some R & R at the beach and I'm back with my first post after a week or so.  I've managed to fit in some retail therapy while I was away and I've been working on a project at the coast and I've seen many gorgeous things!

I've been visiting Bed Bath N Table frequently deciding on a new quilt cover and I've spied many fabulous accessories including a mirror with a white gloss pressed metal frame that I can't stop dreaming about.  As they don't have a website you'll have to pop in there and see it for yourself! or checkout a similar item below.

This is the only image I can find of a mirror similar to that of BBNT! also available from bridge interiors
Pressed metal was traditionally used as a ceiling finish and you may have seen it in an English style pub or turn of the century building.  For some time I've been admiring the pressed metal feature wall in Nina's apartment in the TV Series Offspring and the mirror I saw reminded me of it once again. If you love Nina's Living room wall and the "embossed effect"  Here's some pictures that you might like to take a squiz at.

Pressed Metal isn't always used as a traditional finish it can also add an industrial effect to a modern space as seen in this kitchen.
