Opinions please! Two unusal accents for the home...

I thought it might be cool to get your take on two unusual decor treatments that have come my way.

First - the "Marie Antoniete Mirror" by Boca do Lobo. It's an ornately carved wall mirror, which looks like a hand mirror, and ultimately speaks to the largess of Louis XVI's court. 

What do you think?
Do you like is as an objet d'art? 
Could you have it in your house?

Like it or not - a lot of craftsmanship when into the piece.

The next work - If you've ever lived in an old house or apartment, I'm sure you're no stranger to co-ax cable and having to figure out how to deal with the excesses. These cable drawings, by Maisie Maud Broadhead, display an artistic approach for dealing with the issue.

Her approach actually incorporates a lamp, but I still think it would be just as creative with just excess co-ax. 

What do you think?
Do you appreciate this as a work of art, but wouldn't want it in your home?

I'm anxious to hear what you guys think!

Glad to see portuguese design, Boca do Lobo, in your amazing blog! :)

Well, I'm a New Orleans girl so you know I love anything over the top/ornate!! I love both your finds. I hate wires and that's such a clever way to embrace them! -Boo

I love the ornate wall mirror. I don't usually do over the top pieces but you gotta have at least one, right? The co-ax design is a pretty cool idea but something that wouldn't work in my own home.

Love the mirror but would not have it in my house- it just wouldn't fit with anything else.

I really like the wall art with the cord. I am not sure if I would have it in my home or not.

The mirror lokks realy good, but I think it's "too much" for my house. I m sure I would use it if I had an art shop or a coffe house!
The cables... I m already planing to this in my home!

Love the mirror and the cord art. Both are fabulous!

I love that mirror actually. I have no space for one THAT big, but I'd do something smaller perhaps. :)

The cord art is awesome.

Love the mirror. Don't really care for the coaxle cable idea, it is creative, but a bit much.
