Starburst mirrors, ornate, Rococo mirrors, mother of pearl inlaid mirrors, Venetian mirrors. I'm kind of over them all. I liked the whole Dorothy Draper/Kelly Wearstler Hollywood Regency thing for a while, but now I thinking if I'm going to drop a small fortune on a mirror, I want it to be timelessly stylish, not trendy. I suppose I could say that about a lot of furnishings, but who am I kidding? Each year I fall hard for plenty of trends. That's not the case with the BDDW Captain's Mirror ($1600, $1199 on sale), though. I ache for its uncomplicated round shape, distressed leather frame, and how it hangs with perfect posture from a cast bronze puck. But, it's not a bit ephemeral, it hasn't a stitch of trend appeal. That's what I'm talking about.
