Standalone vanities — not to be confused with bathroom vanities — are wonderful for many reasons. Also known as dressing tables, these pieces can provide you with your own space for self-care. They can double as desks if you're tight on space. They can even elevate an entire room, making it feel like a more luxurious, considered space.

While we have vanities on the brain, we're going to show you a few (okay, 17) of the dressing tables we're currently fawning over.
