“When I think of a vanity table, I think of the glamour days of old Hollywood,” says designer Anthony Baratta. “The word ‘vanity’ connotes pride in one’s appearance; and every once in awhile, we all want to feel like a movie star, so that is what a vanity is for. Think of Elizabeth Taylor at her vanity in the movie ‘Cleopatra’ – so spectacular!”
For the ASPIRE DESIGN AND HOME spring 2020 issue, Anthony shared with us his current favorite vanities, and how best to use them in your space.
Curtain Vanity | Nancy Corzine
“A modern take on the kidney bean desk. There’s a reeded texture throughout the entire piece that gives it a nod to Art Moderne or Art Deco. The light wood finish makes it totally contemporary.”
Riviera Dressing Table | LINLEY
“This piece is so sleek and nautical. It’s right up my alley! Like the inside of a yacht, the teak and holly tops have a high gloss marine finish that says LUXURY.”
Louis XVI Dressing Table | Newel
“What a handsome piece! So classic and masculine with a finish that is perfection. The brass details and marble top add that extra level of quality and beauty to this piece.”
Diana Dressing Table | Baker Furniture
“This dressing table pulls from classical architecture and I love that. The slight klismos leg and corner Greek key details give it a softness that works well with so many interiors.”
