Fonteyn Dressing Table

Available to order from now is another retro-inspired design by Steuart Padwick, the Fonteyn Dressing Table.

Apparently the shape is inspired by a dancer’s poise (hence the name), but to us, those tapered legs and curves are midcentury design. The table has a matt walnut finish with the drawers in a contrasting red gloss. The finishing touch of a round mirror completes its vintage look. It costs £395 from Made, a bargain compared with the £1,295 high street price.

Hideaway Dressing Table

The Hideaway Dressing Table from Dwell looks like something you would find in a 1920s boudoir, but given a mid-century makeover.

It is a self-contained unit with a chair and mirror that tuck neatly away when not use – ideal for modern homes that are short on space. Whilst the idea itself looks older, the unit’s curved front and walnut exterior, give it a decidedly mid-century look.

The Hideaway Dressing Table can be yours for just under £600 from Dwell.
