  • What is an antique dressing table?

    Antique dressing tables are desk-like tables that were specifically designed for use when dressing or grooming. They can be placed in your bedroom or even in large bathrooms or dressing rooms. Antique dressing tables are always over 100 years old. They often come with a mirror and drawers, where you can store make-up, hair care products and any other essentials. Antique dressing tables exude elegance and can complete the look of your bedroom. They date all the way back to the 17th century, when they were also a symbol of status and class. We know that every person is different and has different beauty needs, that’s why our collection of antique dressing tables covers a range of budgets, styles and designs. Choose from a wide variety of styles, including antique French, art deco, British antique, Edwardian, Georgian, Italian antique, Victorian and much more. The boutiques and independent sellers in our community only use and source dressing tables that are made from high quality materials; from large lavish mahogany dressing tables to smaller and simpler satinwood options.
  • Antique dressing tables with mirrors

    Dressing tables as we know them, also known as vanities or make-up tables, have been around since the 17th century. However, as early as 4000 BC, ancient Egyptians stored their perfumes and eye shadows in stone jars and boxes, which were on display in their homes. They also used polished metals, glass or rocks as a mirror to help them apply their make-up. These days, you needn’t polish a rock to ensure you evenly apply your make-up, as our large collection of antique dressing tables come complete with mirrors. We also have hundreds of antique mirrors that you can mix and match with your dressing table. Once you’ve found the perfect antique dressing table to complement your style and suit your grooming needs, you’ll also need to think about a vintage or antique stool. Although many of our dressing tables come with matching stools and seats.
  • What’s the difference between a vintage and an antique vanity table?

    The terms vintage and antique are often used interchangeably. However, the two have different meanings. Vintage refers to items that were made at least 50 years ago and are no older than 100 years. And any item that was constructed over 100 years ago can be called antique. For example, our 1950s dressing tables were made at least 50 years ago and are referred to as vintage. While our art deco dressing tables were made over 100 years and are considered antiques. But if art deco isn’t your style, we have many other stunning antique dressing tables that will make a bold statement in your room, including our French antique dressing tables and our Victorian dressing tables.
