You’ve probably spotted the Anthropologie Gleaming Primrose Mirror in more than one place around the internet. This wildly popular Anthropologie mirror has become a darling of the design world. In fact, it’s so popular that it has its own Instagram and TikTok hashtags—the latter having over 14.8 million views! And it’s all for good reason.
This gorgeous mirror makes a glamorous statement in any room it’s in. Inspired by antique French gilt mirrors, it looks just like something you’d stumble upon at a Parisian flea market. It has the look of a vintage piece, with its extravagant baroque details—from delicate botanicals and swirls to the baubles that line the edge of the frame. But the flat bottom makes it versatile and easy to place anywhere in your home. While it’s certainly an investment piece (it starts at $548 for the smallest size and runs up to $1,598 for the largest size) it has a timeless look and feel that go with almost any style.

Considerations Before Buying the Gleaming Primrose Mirror
The Gleaming Primrose Mirror comes in four different finishes. While the gold-framed option is by far the most popular, you can also get this mirror in antique black, silver, or verdigris finishes. The antique black finish is a great way to add dark and moody contrast to any space. It still has those baroque details but the black finish helps tone down some of the glam interior design vibes for modern and minimalist spaces.
Size, Weight, and Placement
This Anthropologie mirror comes in four different sizes, which allows you to find the perfect size and placement for your mirror. But it’s worth noting that this is quite a heavy mirror, so you’ll want to make sure it’s secure, whether you’re hanging it on the wall or putting it on the floor or on top of a surface. While the 3’ size can be hung on the wall, all other sizes are intended to lean against the wall.
You can find the size and weight details below, along with suggestions on how far the bottom of the frame should be from the wall for optimal security.
3′: 39.25″H, 39″W

- If leaning, base of the frame should be 3.5″ from wall
5′: 60″H, 50.25″W
- 112.5 lbs.
- When leaning, base of the frame should be 3.5″ from wall
6′ Floor: 71.75″H, 32″W

7′ Large: 84″H, 64.25″W

How to Style the Anthropologie Gleaming Primrose Mirror
There are so many different ways to style the Anthropologie Gleaming Primrose Mirror—especially since it comes in four different sizes! The size option you choose will partially dictate how you style the mirror. But, beyond that, there are numerous options for how you can incorporate this Anthropologie mirror into your home’s design.
Style Idea #1: Primrose on the Floor
The largest size of the Primrose Mirror makes an ideal oversized floor mirror which you can lean against a wall. A large floor mirror like this can help visually open up a space (it keeps light bouncing around!) while also serving as wall decor. After all, with all of those ornate details on the frame, it really is a piece of art! Of course, it can also stand on its own and make a gorgeous statement. This is a great mirror for rooms with tall ceilings or spaces where you’re trying to visually fill up large blank walls.
In a living room, we like the idea of leaning it behind a piece of furniture, like a sofa, bench, or even console table. This creates an elegant but trendy look. Meanwhile, this Anthropologie mirror in a dining room can make the space feel larger and add a sense of sophistication or formality. And you can’t go wrong using it as a full-length mirror in your bedroom!
The Gleaming Primrose Mirror is a perfect way to make a statement in any entryway. Having a floor mirror lets you do outfit checks before heading out the door. Plus, mirrors are a great way to brighten up what can be a dark space! This mirror also looks great leaning in a nook or large recessed wall niche, like the one pictured here.
Long story short? This mirror looks good leaned up against a wall in just about any room of the house (other than maybe a kitchen).
Style Idea #2: Primrose as a Vanity Mirror
Have you always dreamed of having a vanity where you can sit and get ready for each day? The Primrose Mirror is a great way to make that dream come true. Pair this gold baroque wall mirror with a console table, desk, or actual vanity table to create your own unique vanity and dressing area. The flat bottom allows you to set it right on the tabletop—or you can hang it on the wall. Either way, it adds beautiful detail and a classic touch to any vanity top. This Anthropologie mirror also allows you to create a more personalized vanity space since it frees you from having a matching mirror and vanity table!
You could also use this as a bathroom vanity mirror, above your sink! It would add a major dose of elegance to your space. Anthropologie also makes a Primrose bathroom cabinet mirror if you like this idea but want a little extra storage space!
Style Idea #3: Primrose Above a Fireplace
The small or medium-sized Primrose Mirror is the perfect addition to a fireplace mantle. A mirror above a fireplace helps visually open up a room as light bounces around. Plus, the style of this gold baroque wall mirror feels classic above a fireplace, especially one that’s more ornate. However, this Anthropologie mirror can go with almost any design style and fireplace style, making it a very versatile piece while still adding a classic, vintage vibe to your space.
Style Idea #4: Primrose Hung on the Wall
While the Gleaming Primrose Mirror looks beautiful hung or leaned above furniture and fireplaces, it looks just as charming on its own. It can make a beautiful statement in a living room when hung above a sofa or in a dining room on an empty wall. Incorporate it into a gallery wall or let it shine on its own. Either way, it adds a sense of classic glamor to any room!
Style Idea #5: Primrose Above a Dresser
The Primrose Mirror has a tall and wide frame, making it perfect for use in a dressing area. Place it above a dresser in your bedroom for an expansive and glamorous getting-ready space! You can set this Anthropologie mirror on top of the dresser, leaning it against the wall, for a more casual look, or hang the mirror on the wall if you want to secure it in place. Of course, you could always skip the mirror above the dresser and opt for the floor mirror size next to your dresser if you want a full-length mirror for getting ready!
Style Idea #6: Primrose Paired with a Console Table or Buffet
Whether in an entryway, hallway, or in your living or dining room, the Gleaming Primrose Mirror looks sublime when paired with a large accent table. When placed atop or above a console table or buffet, it’s the perfect way to create a designed vignette or an empty space.
We love it over buffets in a dining room—this combo is a great alternative to the floor mirror look we mentioned above, so you don’t have to choose between a statement mirror and dining room storage. If you have a long wall—either in your living room or an empty hallway—hanging this Anthropologie mirror above a narrow console table is just the thing to give that wall some purpose and decoration. And, of course, it’s also a wonderful choice for hanging above a console in an entryway. What a way to leave an impression on guests!
