Rated 2 out of 5 by shoppergal82 Poorly finished
I read the reviews before I decided to order this mirror. I felt many poor reviews had to do with the packaging and the back of the mirror, so I decided to order it. My house is full of quality Ballard Design items. Well, this is the first one I sent back. The overall quality is poor and painting job is bad. If it was being viewed from far away only it might pass but it had a really rough surface that would be very hard to keep clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TXTOWNHOME just what I've been looking for
I moved into a townhome that did not have a mirror in the powder bath. I'd seen this in the catalog for many, many months before I even moved and thought, I sure do like that but have no where to hang it. Finally I bit the bullet....when there was a sale and I am so pleased. It's not blue as described, which was one concern. My palate is soft greens. The mirror is heavy but the hanging hardware that came with it was solid and easy to install and hang. I love this mirror.

I bought this for my dining room, and it's really beautiful! Very well made, paint color is just as pictured. I will hang it over a dark stained antique which will make it pop off the wall. I wish they came in more colors! I would buy it again for another room in another color if it was available.
Well worth the price!

Rated 2 out of 5 by CrissyP Beautiful mirror, very cheaply made
The mirror is beautiful and matches my decor perfectly, but was broken on arrival. First of all the glue that was used to hold the mirror in wasn't very good bc the mirror fell out of the grooves along with the thin wood backing that is also supposed to hold the mirror in place. The piece of wood was held on by several tiny staples and bc the frame is particle board in back pieces of wood broke off where the staples were causing the whole thing to fall out. Luckily, the mirror isn't broken and the front of the frame isn't damaged bc I wouldn't want to deal with shipping it back. Will have to go purchase items to fix it now. Not cool for a $200 mirror!

I thought the photo in the catalog was quite accurate. It is a lovely mirror and a great addition to our bedroom. Thanks Ballard.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SPOPS Poorly constructed
This mirror is poorly constructed. Specifically, staples meant to hold the mirror in place are too short and break off in shipment. The frame of the mirror easily disintegrates around the staples, because the frame is actually made from compressed sawdust (which is somewhat fairly described by Ballard as "wood composite"). Customer Service related to me that nobody at Ballard actually inspects this product before it ships. So, even though I'm exchanging the product for another that will hopefully survive shipment... I can only hope.

This mirror is absolutely perfect for above my fireplace. The descriptions says it is blue, but it is the perfect seafoam green color in person. The only fault I have with the mirror is that it is larger than I had thought.

Mirror is just a bit more blue than sea-foam green. A beautiful color and wonderful mirror for this price point! I love it.

I love it - it looks exactly like in the picture, and now it's the focus of my living room. It works great with any style - modern, traditional, country or eclectic, so it can be used over and over.
One drawback - it had a very strong smell in the beginning, which was making me dizzy and caused a headache. I had to leave it outside for a few days - it still smells if you get close, but most of the smell is gone now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by puffin A lovely wall accent
The Ogden mirror was securely packaged when it arrived, and included the necessary hardware to properly hang it. It is quite substantial. The color is a beautiful blue/green-- its spa blue color blends nicely with other shades of blue and is almost chameleon-like. I did notice a minor defect on the mirror's outer trim. I touched it up with a silver and a gold pen. A lovely addition to our wall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KateBB Pleasing and Substantial
This is a beautiful mirror. I hesitated to order it, fearing fragility -- but it was well-packaged and arrived in tip-top shape.
The depth of the frame is 2 inches and change -- and this configuration allowed me to balance it easily on the top of a tall dresser where it looks splended. It "makes" the room, a true focal point.
Incidentally, the pale blue-green in the recessed part of the frame happens to coordinate well with the "spa linen" colors featured in the Ballard catalog. As for the "antique silver" finish, it's lovely but, to my eye, seems more a combo of silver and gold and there are little black scattered dots; the overall effect is muted, classy.
This is my favorite Ballard purchase so far.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MBCgirl Lovely, but not blue or silver
Just received my Ogden mirror and want to caution those who want a blue or blue-green mirror that this mirror is light green with gray undertones. That is why I gave it 4 vs. 5 stars. As another reviewer said, it actually does look like the photo above, but the written description and the second photo lead you to believe that you are seeing blue in it. The frame is not a cool antique silver, but more akin to a brushed nickel with warm and cool tones. The frame makes it possible to transition this to warm or cool settings. It is a lovely mirror if you need /want green.

Substantial mirror, more green than blue, though. Heavy, more grey than a shiny silver border.

I love this mirror. I looked all over for a mirror to revitalize an old bathroom. I saw the ogden mirror but put off purchasing because it was on line and I was not sure if I would like it. WOW, I love it. Should have bought it earlier. It is beautiful! Price was great and shipping fast. It brings life to my old bath.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CatmomTX Pretty Mirror, bad construction
From the front, the mirror is lovely, however I had to use Gorilla tape to adhere the glass to the frame on the back because the staples used were inserted so poorly. During shipping the product apparently shifted and the staples, which were too close to the surface, pulled out and took chunks of the pressboard with them. Since the mirror glass was undamaged and the frame looked fine in the front, I elected to fix it myself rather than return. Once on the wall, no one will know what the back looks like, but it was disappointing to see the shoddy workmanship when other Ballard's purchases have been perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by momof2ny Ogden mirror
this mirror fits nicely above my fireplace and is well made/sturdy. One thing to note is that the color isn't really blue, its more of a blue green, so it doesn't match exactly to my blue furniture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SWNative A beautifully designed mirror!
This mirror is gorgeous! I have it hanging over our fireplace and it is absolutely the focal point of the room. The color in person is very true to the color on-line, a beautiful blue-gray with the slightest hint of green. I consistently get comments on this piece.

My daughter saw the Ogden mirror in your fall 2010 catalog and loved it. I purchased 2 of them as a wedding gift for her. They hang vertically side by side and add a terrific spacious effect in their small NYC apartment.

I purchased this mirror to hang horizontally in my dining room. It brings out the blue in the rug under my table and matches curtains I had. I was also happy with the equipment that came with the mirror to hang it easily.

I absolutely love this mirror. The color, the size, the value and the detailing are fabulous. They are accents over chests in my dining room. I highly recommend the Ogden mirror as a beautiful accent in your home!!!
