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.

1. Urban Outfitters Marte Vanity, $299

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

2. West Elm Penelope Mini Desk, $399

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.

3. Ikea Brimnes Dressing Table, $99

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

4. Volk Furniture Vanity, price upon request

"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.

5. Target Vanity Set, $169.99

The copper-hued finishings on this affordable Target vanity recall old fashioned steamer trunks — just the right amount of detail to make a plain piece feel special.

6. Candy Wood Vanity and Mirror Set, $424.79

In the wrong context, this vanity could look like an '80s nightmare. But done the right way, and it could feel like a Danish-ish stroke of genius.

7. World Market Mirrored Vanity Table, $549.99

This is like the denim of vanities — you can wear it with anything and it'll work.

8. Furniture of America Vanity Table and Stool, $275.39

Hey, if you're going to have a vanity, you might as well embrace its Old Hollywood roots with a little gold glam.

9. Songmics Modern Vanity Set, $109.99

Looking for something to complement your midcentury bedroom? This dressing table from Amazon is just the ticket.

10. Pier 1 Mirror and Vanity, $699.90 (for set)

Art deco is back. Embrace the style with Pier 1's vanity set (you buy the mirror and table separately), which feels like 1940s luxury without overdoing it.

11. Urban Outfitters Wire Loop Vanity, $159

There's nothing wrong with going all-out femme with your dressing table. Urban's wire loop vanity definitely fits that bill. It comes in copper or white, so pick whichever hue best suits your boudoir.

12. Pier 1 Antique White Vanity, $279.96

Looking for farmhouse feels? This Pier 1 desk has antique-inspired details that'll look great in any home with rustic or country vibes.
