This dressing table is a light and simple design, following the pared-back aesthetic of the rest of the Aldwych collection (which includes chests of drawers and side tables). It features two, slim drawers and a small upstand to keep everything in place. Although conceived as a dressing table when partnered with a mirror, it could just as easily be a small desk – or a hybrid of the two, perfect for when your home is called on to adapt.
Design & engineering
Tulipwood is always the timber we turn to when we know we’re going to use a painted finish. That’s because, as well as being strong and stable, it also has a very fine, very even grain. Because there’s little in the way of knots and swirls, it’s easy to create a flat, smooth and practically perfect finish using our eggshell paint.
The water-based eggshell paint is hand-finished - this means we have control over the painting process and can ensure even coverage. By using eggshell, rather than a seemingly more hardwearing plastic coating, you can not only repaint easily, but your table will have a soft, low-sheen finish that’s so much more tactile and has a greater depth of colour. It comes in Snow as standard, with the option of any other colour with our paint service, and there’s also a version in Warm Black.
Like the other pieces in the Aldwych family, the hardware changes depending on the paint colour: chrome for Snow or any of our paint service colours, and black-bronze with the Warm Black option. In both cases, we’ve chosen our small Britten button knobs to tie in with the minimal aesthetic.
The upstand is a useful feature for keeping everything from papers and pencils to makeup from falling off the edges, but because it stops two thirds of the way down the sides, it won’t hamper your elbows. The two drawers underneath are slim so as not to add bulk to the desk, but will still hold all the essentials. Underneath the legs are small feet, which help to keep the paint finish from scuffing as well as protect hard flooring.
