Mirrors: Craft at Cannon Green

There are many many people out there whom Dave and I have met through sailing over the years, and Justin Walling is one of them.  Conveniently, he happens to have a company that makes some of the most beautiful antiqued mirrors in the country- so when we realized we could use a few (ok, a lot) of those, he was the first person we reached out to.

It seems like many years ago now, since that area of King is sort of the main drag for nightlife and it was formerly an off-the-beaten path destination for cabinets, fancy antique mirrors, and in the evenings- wine, charcuterie, and live jazz.

When the business expanded to need more production space, they moved out to an industrial space on James Island where they still are today.  Currently, they produce mirrors of all shapes, sizes and colors- as well as some stained and leaded glass. Not to mention they are in demand throughout the country and have done large installations for places like the Restoration Hardware flagship store in Boston among others.

The best part is that despite being so in demand, Justin still makes time to sail with his family. I guess we’ll forgive him if every now and then he takes a while to get back to us because they’re off on some wonderful sailing adventure…If you want to check out Charleston Architectural Glass at Cannon Green, they provided the mirrors behind the original house facade windows in the restaurant, the mirrors in the Spring St. restrooms, and the mirrored wall in the Trolley Room hallway. (As well as several mirrors over at Charleston Stems if you’re strolling the neighborhood…)

Cannon Green is open for dinner Tuesday – Saturday, 5 – 11 pm;
and Sunday Brunch, 11 am – 3 pm. Reservations are recommended.
