The sunburst mirror has certainly had its day in the sun, so to speak. If you gravitate toward a different style, check out the 55 Downing Street mirror sale, which started today and runs until Saturday, April 5. They have nearly 1500 decorative and functional (the magnify-your-face-to-uncomfortable-degrees kind) options and they're going fast. Some have already sold out and the sale's been open less than half a day!
Frameless and framed options in a multitude of styles, shapes, and sizes are all discounted.
Personally, I prefer large mirrors as opposed decorating with clusters of tiny ones, and I've shared my favorites from the sale here. I love the Art Deco frame above because it reminds me of the office building I worked in on 42nd and Lexington when I was at Traditional Home. The building had some of the most beautiful elevator doors I've ever seen, gold with great imagery and detailing similar to what is on this frame.
As you can tell, I'm also drawn to mirrors with a bit of movement and while I've only shown metallic or neutral frames here, I would also use a colored frame if I found the right one (the mirror on the bottom right comes in dozens of colors).
I also think using one or more good mirrors like these instead of one large unframed (ugly) piece of glass in a bathroom is much more attractive. Interesting mirror frames are just another way of injecting your personality into your decor and of course provide the added bonus of creating more light in dark rooms and making small ones seem larger. What is your mirror style?

the sunburst mirror has not had it's day in the sun. Look at all the home and on line retailers. It still dominates the mirror market. as a buyer I get to see the trends when I travel the world markets. Sunburst mirrors are still hot.

My statement doesn't mean that sunburst mirrors are over, just that they've had a lot of attention. However, for me, editorially, I feel like they've reached a certain saturation point and I would love to see people trying other things. I like the sunburst, I just would like to see other styles, too. Thanks for your comment!
