Sunburst Mirrors

Sunburst mirrors add a "classic touch” which never goes out of style, whether your style is Traditional, Contemporary or Modern. 

Sunburst ornamentation and design pattern can be traced back to the Greek and Roman architecture.  Sunburst mirrors have been around for centuries.  They are timeless and classic, which means they are popular and never go out of style. 

French furniture design began with King Louis XIV.  He was named “Sun King” because his contemporaries connected him with the Greek God Apollo and considered the French goverment to revolve around King Louis XIV. 

During the 17th century there was a fascination with reflecting surfaces and King Louis XIV was no different.  In fact, in 1682 King Louis XIV unveiled the “Hall of Mirrors” with 357 mesmerizing beautiful mirrors lining the hall of the Palace of Versaille.  This started a 20 year monoply  in the manufacturing of mirrors in France. 

Sunburst mirrors, convex mirrors and starburst mirrors created trends in home decoration that would last a lifetime.  Sunburst mirrors add a magical touch to your space. They can be used to expand, add drama or light up your room.  Why not use one in your next decorating project!  Send me pictures and I’ll post it on my blog. Thanks. :-)
