As the years went on, these cosmetics treasure chests simply became more ornate, with intricate compartments and fancier handles, but not much else changed. Finally something interesting started to happen, around the late 17th century in Europe. The beauty revolution was spreading like wildfire, so the once basic beauty boxes were retired in favor of something bigger and better.
By that time members of high society were indulging in some insanely lengthy beauty rituals. Men were also expected to jump on the train of lavish dress and excessive style. Royals went through these tedious grooming routines daily, without even being able to scroll through their instagram feeds to pass the time.
Fortunately these aristocrats were constantly surrounded by their court aka: squad. These little cliques were always on standby, so reigning ladies started turning their boring beauty rituals into fun hang out sessions. These highborn women were longing for a space where they could chit chat while being glammed up.
Naturally they turned to renowned furniture makers to come up some with some creative solutions. Drawing inspiration from the popular mens shaving tables, and low boy tables, designers came up with some stunning concepts. The end result was a piece of furniture where you could entertain friends, catch up on writing, and most importantly, store vast collections of powders, cremes, and wigs that noble ladies needed to look like a circus performer impressive.
Ladies used them to wrap up their most delicate cosmetics before storing them away. One of the most amazing examples the early French vanity table, belonged to the famous Madame de Pompadour. She was best known for being the mistress of King Louis XV, but she was a totally iconic and respected lady in her own right.
Before Marie Antionette was rambling on about cake, Pompadour was influencing popular taste through her status at court. Madame Pompadour was a trusted adviser to the King, so she was obviously like really busy most of the time. As an unofficial minister of the arts, she commissioned renowned furniture designer Jean-Francois Oeben to make a vanity table where she could carry out all of her tasks, in the ultimate style.
This gorgeous dressing table is adorned with dainty flowers, and even features a tower motif inspired by the Pompadour coat of arms. Oeben artistically engineered the mechanical vanity so that when the top slides back, the front moves forward revealing a HUGE for the time because glass was pricey mirror. The sliding mechanism extends the surface area, leaving plenty of room for visitors to pull up a chair other side. For Madame Pompadour, it was a gorgeous place to visit with her gal pals, correspond to letters, and store her beloved cosmetics.
Pompadour was well known for receiving all types of guest while sitting at her elegant dressing table. By the 19th century, the vanity had floated its way over to Victorian England and America with a newly classed up name; the dressing table. They had slowly become a crucial part of the standard bedroom suite, and furniture makers used dark oak, walnut, and mahogany to make trendy matching sets.
Queen Anne style vanity tables became all the rage, but were less flashy than their previous french ancestors. The once delicate small mirrors grew to take center stage of these vintage vanity tables. The T ri Fold Mirror vanity table was the next popular style to be seen in homes everywhere. Some of these wing mirrors even folded inward so that you could get a view of your primping efforts! The Waterfall vanity was a less elaborate design, with an even larger circular mirror and fairly simple details.
Waterfall vanities were covered in exotic veneers that ran the short length of the surface. It created that trademark waterfall edge that vintage vanity enthusiasts still go crazy for today. The once curvy pieces, became rigid with very sharp, clean lines. The mirrors above these vintage vanity tables also adjusted, swapping the oval for rectangular shaped designs.
The legs on mid century vanities became thin little sticks, and remind me of those triangle peg in the hole games you play at Cracker Barrel. They used satin pine, metals, and lighter colored materials to finish off these interestingly shaped designs. On the up side, since the cosmetics industry had grown, these vintage vanity tables incorporated more storage to keep up with the bigger hairspray collections.
Acrylic materials, and glass topped vanities were all the rage. They had some pretty interesting finishes, like colored lacquers and shimmering effects. All over mirroring was another popular vanity style, which probably came in handy for blending that pesky foundation line under your chin. Vanity tables completely capitalized on the Y2K millennium look, and were a nod to the glitter obsessed era trend.
With interior design trends of shabby chic and french farmhouse taking over, these reproductions are still wildly popular today. The biggest update for modern vanity tables , is that they sprawl across whatever space they occupy. Vanity closets, and vanity rooms are new trends that are showing no signs of slowing down.
Serious makeup lovers are even installing shelving systems, and additional drawers around their vanities to contain their treasure troves. This shift in design goes right along with the explosive growth of the beauty industry in the past few years.
