The Origin of the Sunburst Mirror
Lively Mirrors for Social Spaces: Living rooms, family room and playroom are all social spaces and therefore must be inviting. You should look to open up these spaces with the strategic positioning of your wall mirror creating the illusion of a larger space. You can opt for the traditional overmantle mirror which would feature above any fireplace creating a charming atmosphere or you could demonstrate a creative burst. Alternating the use of glass and other materials like wood or metal can create a stylish contemporary look that would instantly revive your room. You could also experiment with different shaped mirrors a diamond or oval mirror would create an edgy, stylish design that would wow any guests in your home.
The mirror is decoration: In the living room, a lot of times the mirror is put above the fireplace and when you think about this, there seems to be something decorative about this. It is decorative in the sense that the mirror seems to be the main ornament. It is a central piece of decorative furniture and even though its function is obvious, decoration seems to be the main purpose. If the main reason is decorative, then you can add to the interior by using other mirrors in a more functional setting and showing up the decorative purpose of the central mirror above the fireplace. Again in this living room setting, you can show up the functionality and decorativeness of the mirror object by adding mirrors at foot level along one of the walls.
At one time mirrors were made using a backing of mercury, but these are no longer manufactured. They can also be made using silver, precipitated from a silver nitrate solution. However, today, most mirrors are made by evaporating aluminum onto glass, although other coats are applied to improve adhesion and durability. For example, a black backing can be applied to improve opacity and reflectivity.
