Cogwheel Mirrors from Mercana

As I was browsing Pinterest I came across these cool cogwheel mirrors from Mercana. Mercana is a business to business only home furnishings company based in Vancouver BC. They don't sell directly to consumers, but if you email them, they will direct you to a retailer near you, where you can buy their gorgeous stuff!
I wonder how these cogwheel mirrors look with my Clockwork wallpapers? Would it be too much of the same motif?

The official colour of the year chosen by the experts at Pantone is Marsala. For some it's an earthy, rich tone, which reminds us of good food, wine (Marsala is a dark, sweet dessert wine produced in the Sicily, near the city of Marsala), for others it's associated with all kinds of bodily functions....

 I do like the smooth, elegant richness of it, but I also find it a bit heavy, like a heavy perfume, which sort of makes it more mature with a lot of drama. I can see it as a rug, definitely, maybe a wallpaper.

I think my Hungarian Rhapsody rug would look great in Marsala - it has the weight and the drama.
