Cox & Cox Quatrefoil Outdoor Mirror
The quatrefoil design of this Cox & Cox mirror may be familiar if you are a history buff, as it was a popular symbol in medieval Europe, and the shape can frequently be spotted in architecture and windows from this period.
Add to a classical garden for a touch of castle fantasy, or make use of the simple curved lines to complement a more contemporary scheme. The mirror measures 44cm x 44cm and is made of metal which will develop a weathered patina over time.

Sulu Rattan Effect Outdoor Mirror
This handmade rattan-look Sulu mirror from Dunelm is just the thing for adding a laid-back boho vibe to your outdoor space.
Although it looks like it's woven from natural materials, it's actually made of synthetic material designed to stand up to the elements. To complete the look, style alongside other garden accessories from the Sulu range, including a garden wall shelf and plant stands.
Garden Illusion Mirror
One of the charms of an outdoor mirror is that, placed correctly, it gives the illusion of being a window into an extra expanse of garden. This mirror from Primrose leans into that illusion, with the internal frame angled to look like a window left ajar.
The frame is made form weatherproofed redwood with a shatterproof perspex pane, making this a particularly safe and durable option for outdoor use.
