Skirted Dressing Tables

Dressing tables originated in 18th century France, and provided the lady of the house a special place to apply her cosmetics and perfumes.  Sometimes referred to as a vanity, they are still included in many master bedrooms, baths and dressing areas.  Skirted kidney-shaped tables are more romantic than their skirtless counterparts.  Both of these photographs feature gathered skirts, one with a simple band [above] and the addition of a ruffled edge at the top [below].  Boudoir collectables, such as dresser trays to hold perfume bottle collections or dresser sets are most often found along side silver frames and bud vases.  The addition of a single framed or triple folding mirror along with a pair of dresser lamps and chair, stool or ottoman create a favorite place to start and end each day.
