Antique bedroom vanity with mirror create an oasis for leisurely primping. Finding one you love can be the inspiration to redecorate your whole bedroom. Antique vanities have their beginnings around the early 16th century in France, around the time of Louis XIV. This furniture period was known for the French craftsmen throwing away the Italianate blueprints and forming their own class of furniture. France was the wealthiest country in the world during this period, so furniture, particularly bedroom furniture, began to have more importance than just a rudimentary bed and chest. With the high fashion of the time period, the antique bedroom vanity soon became prevalent in middle- and high-class societies. If you want to decorate with your antique bedroom vanity with mirror, you might start to feel like an old time movie star sitting on that cute little stool facing a mirror that is gently curved to frame your face.
