What our Customers are Saying


"I am thrilled to have a My Swanky Home firescreen in my home. After an exhaustive search on websites and in local Atlanta shop, I finally found the absolute perfect piece for my living room. Our fireplace, with it's 'grand in size' presence, needed an equally grand fire screen, and My Swanky Home delivered! The hard to find size is the perfect focal point and anchors the room beautifully."

Amy, Roswell, GA

"I searched for a very long time for the 'right' sunburst mirror, and this was the one. Many out there are NOT metal (combo of mirror, wood and metal), but this piece is All metal and is gorgeous. It is exactly as pictured, a beautiful subtle gold. It is quite heavy, so know this before installing. You will not be disappointed in this piece..."

Helene, Plano, TX

"These are even better in person! I wanted to give my new, very neutral, master bath a little personality, and these are perfect. They are plenty big for a vanity mirror and bring the eye up. The finish is beautiful: aged, dark bronze, rich. It blends well with my other oil rubbed bronze fixtures."

Sergio, Brooklyn, NY

"I wanted a great indoor greenhouse look in my sunroom, something alive with lots of visual interest. A collage of domes and cloches was the perfect idea. My Swanky Home was amazing to work with- they took the time to help me pick out exactly what I needed."
