The Authentic Antique Makeup Vanity

For an authentic and mystic look, an antique makeup vanity is a beautiful choice.  Intricate and well made, an antique vanity is something special.

It seems to be that items made in the olden days were made well and made to last.  Everything was made by hand, so details and extras were more common and individualized.  An antique vanity looks regal and stately, adding an incomparable beauty to a room.  The quality of the wood in antique vanities is usually more solid and durable then most of the modern day variety.  A proof of its good quality is the fact that it lasted long enough to be called an antique.  HOP Vanity & Bench - Antique WhiteThe woodwork and finishing on antique vanities is authentic and genuine, and cannot be compared to machine processed products.

Keep in mind that there is a price for this beauty.  Antique vanities are usually by no means inexpensive, and you’ll have to pay high price for a nice piece.  You may think that smaller is automatically less expensive, but in reality it is much more then size that goes into the pricing of an antique piece.  If you like the look of antique vanities but don’t want to pay the price, you can purchase an imitation instead.  This way you can have the beauty for a fraction of the price.

Antique vanities are a prime choice for those who can afford them and appreciate their beauty.  They are sure to last you, and their value will only continue to go up with age.

A beautiful home is a wonderful thing.  At Timber and Textiles, we aim to provide you with all the information you need to furnish and decorate your home so that it provides you with all of the style and practicality that you deserve to live with.
