Sunburst Mirror, Starburst Mirror

While there are many purely functional items which transcend a wide variety of styles, such as storage cabinets or seating, there are few interior design objects which are as widely adopted and varied in their application as sunburst mirrors.

Also referred to as startburst mirrors or sun ray mirrors, the style of a flat or concave round mirror framed in a burst or ray of either gold or silver metal or wood creates a classic effect. A classic example of a formal French style mirror is the Ankara 57"D Black Gold Solid Wood Hand Carved Sunburst Mirror while the transitional charm of the Galaxy Modern Deco Silver Starburst Rays Mirror works gorgeously in Art Deco, Hollywood Regency or French Country settings.

While taste is most certainly subjective, a sunburst mirror illustrates in very simple and elegant lines what good taste has looked like for centuries. Even an ultra modern interpretation like the Modern Hollywood Regency Sunburst Ray Mirror 29"D or the Wellington Oval Hollywood Regency Starburst Radiant Mirror- Silver could work their way into a more traditional space and look right at home.

Variations on the theme of sunburst mirrors are often surprisingly diverse and always charming. Whether crafted from carved wood like the Antique Gold Sunburst Rays Gypsy Decorative Mirror 21.5"D or metallic discs like the Kensey Small Abstract Iron Disc Starburst Modern Mirror. Whether you call them starburst mirrors or sunburst mirrors, in the language of great timeless design you can always call them the perfect compliment to any wall, any time.
