Has anyone noticed if loblaws has a large mirror in the espresso wood? I need at least 34 cm X 34cm (roughly).

And if I could pick your brains while I have your attention...I have decided to convert one of the rooms in my home to a small salon to accomodate regulars (while I try to get the decor bus. off the ground). The walls are already painted & I was hoping not to redo, they are a colour very close to BM sag harbour grey & have a very subtle wash close to providence olive. Laminate floors midtone. It appears the cutting chair I'll be getting is chocolate brown & today I purchased 2 of the leather chairs from loblaws - in brown. I also came home with the loblaws mirror in the lacquered white, which brings me to my question ( finally). Would you lean towards espresso coloured wood or mahogany? There is already an armoire (pine stained in mahogany) which I plan to restain when I decide which woods to go with. And my metals are chrome. Bear in mind the room s on the lower level , has a 40 in. window facing north and halogen lightng, & s aprox. 10' X 10'. And would you keep the whte mirror?

well, yes I do think! I was hoping for confirmation...now to find the right balance. I think it was last months H&H they had chocolate paired with the white & although stark I found it striking..."outside the box" & god knows I can be too!

Thanks for advice everyone...if anyone else would like to throw in their 2 cents I'd love to hear the ideas:)

spoke with my supplier again, the cutting chair has a white glossy base- nothing we can do about this, it's a floor model in TO (i'm getting for a steal - & he's bringing down for me on the weekend -no charge) SO the chair has to work- now chocolate brown leather/white base(the part that pumps the chair up) do you think I should still get rid of the white mirror?

it would be me to come home with somethng I didn't open n the store. Actually I tried to have them open it for me & they seemed so annoyed, one guy looks in the box from this narrow slt & says "it should be ok. if not bring it back"- heck for $60.00 he could have told me off & I still would have been thrlled with the buy. I really like the mirror & the white s growng on me...I set out to find black chairs & espresso wood anything, thought I would get some black & whites framed...but when I could only find the mirror in white I lost sight of my mission. Now, using the white mirror & some white accesories with the mahogany is starting to appeal to me. Why is it so much easier to choose for other people LOL? Maybe, because I want It all!!! hehe
