12 of the Best Vanity Tables Money Can Buy

The genius of the vanity table is that it has a single, indulgent purpose: to provide you with a space dedicated to making yourself beautiful. It's a highly personal spot, which is why we get super territorial and outspoken when it comes to cultivating these primping stations. But, a good dressing table can be hard to come by, which is why we rounded up 12 of the best ones on the market right now.

We are ALL over Urban Outfitters' Marte collection — with a special soft spot for this vanity with cane-front drawers. No cane, no gain!

While we prefer a piece that's specifically constructed to be a vanity, we do acknowledge that there aren't tons of them on the market, so you may need to hunt down a small desk to fashion into a primping station. That's exactly what interior designer and stylist Cate St. Hill did with this little number from West Elm.

There are no bells and whistles with this Ikea offering. But, it is extremely compact (studio apartment dwellers, are you listening?) and under $100.

"OOooooOOoooOOOooooOOOOOo" was the scientific term we used to describe this vanity handcrafted by Brooklyn-based furniture company, Volk. The design is making us think of the modern-minimalist vibe we're seeing a lot of in Italy.
