1950s Dressing Tables

At first glance, the dressing table is an item of furniture that is quite simple and functional. A chair, a work surface and a mirror are sufficient to help you prepare yourself in the morning. But look more closely and you’ll realise that the importance of getting the right dressing table is much greater than you might imagine – not least because this piece of furniture can take up a considerable amount of space in your bedroom. If you are looking to add a touch of character and style to your bedroom, take the time to explore the 1950s look by browsing our products here at Vinterior. You might be surprised to find how well this mid-century look can complement a broad range of bedroom styles.

Why choose a 1950s dressing table?

The 1950s was the decade that mid-century modern decor took over. The curvy, sinewy shapes that had dominated for several years became more rigid and modular, with sharper, cleaner lines beginning to dominate. The mirrors that accompanied these vintage dressing tables also adjusted, with rectangular shaped designs taking over from the oval shapes that had gone before. The legs on mid-century vanities became thin sticks, the sleek style was a welcome change in that era.

A mid-century modern dressing table from the 1950s can be a fantastic addition to your bedroom if you are looking to add an air of refinement to an otherwise quiet and neutral space. Dressing tables from the 1950s may not be as opulent as the Art Deco options of the 1920s and 30s but they undoubtedly bring an understated sense of sophistication to any space.

Whether it’s a pedestal dressing table made using Italian maple, a walnut dressing table by Alfred Cox or one of the many creations from the G Plan collection, there is a solution here for all types of bedroom.

Dressing tables and wellbeing

Dressing tables should never be left as an afterthought. While your bed, wardrobes and bedside tables are, of course, important, spare a thought for that time at the start and the end of every day. In the morning, your time at a dressing table can help you prepare yourself for the day ahead – and so an inspiring and eye-catching piece of furniture can genuinely help to boost your mood for the day. Similarly, after a long day at work, isn’t it nice to wind down and prepare for bed at a beautiful dressing table – wiping away the signs of the day and giving yourself a few precious moments to pamper yourself.
