Q: Hi! I am a grad student, and I am writing a paper on sunburst mirrors for my object theory class. I see sunburst mirrors in houses on design and interiors blogs (such as this one) all the time, and I was wondering if you knew what the appeal is. I am fascinated that so many people have them and I would like to find out why and when and who and a bit more why. Many thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you. -Sent by Celia

Editor: For starters, sunburst mirrors have a long, interesting design history worth reading about. Houzz has a good primer. But if you’re more interested in understanding their current appeal, we should turn it over to the readers. Readers, please let Celia know why you do or don’t like sunburst mirrors.
