Dressing tables have seen a bit of a revival recently as vintage style becomes more popular.
Originally called vanity tables, dressing tables first came into fashion in the 18th Century, likely from royal origins. They would have featured several drawers and possibly even secret panels, so that items could be hidden from sight when the table was not in use. Just like dressing tables today they also included a small cushioned stool for the user to sit on, a vanity mirror and/or wing mirrors and various separate modules on the top.
Dressing tables would often be very elaborate, both in style and function, with folding tops, concealed basins attached to cisterns and beautiful detail carved into the wood. The shape hasn’t changed at all over the years, coming in a rectangular or kidney form with a knee hole. The majority have drawers underneath the surface, a mirror attached to the top and space on top to line up lotions and potions.
