A nice dressing table can make getting ready to go out like a ceremony in itself…but is yours up to the task? Today we’re looking at some that definitely are as we pick out our five favourite dressing tables, each of them with circular mirrors:
Crafted from a mixture of dark stained oak and oak veneers, the Ada dressing table is part of a range (which also includes a bedside table) that’s been inspired by vintage sewing boxes and you can certainly see that when you examine its tapered legs. It has side drawers which swivel out to eliminate the need for rummaging, as well as not one but two circular mirrors that enable you to ensure your make-up is on point!
Bethan Gray Genevieve Marble Top Dressing Table in Oak – £799, John Lewis
John Lewis’s Genevieve dressing table – designed by Bethan Grey, who was voted Best British Designer in 2014 – oozes quality. Its sleek frame has two drawers and is held up by four elegant legs, two of which are positioned close together and extend to form supports for the large circular mirror behind. Finished off with circular round gold handles, it has a marble surface. Matching chests and a tallboy are also available.
Opalina Dressing Table with Mirror – £1,799, Tonelli Design
The Opalina dressing table with mirror has more than a touch of space-age style about it, with its circular mirror and minimalist structure. Made mainly from glass, it has a lacquered wooden drawer finished in white at the top, and has a large round flip-top circular mirror at the back. It’s part of a range that includes an equally futuristic mirror, console table, writing desk, stool and even a desk blotter.
Salome Solid Mango Wood Dressing Table – £439, Maisons du Monde
Minimalistic but pretty at the same time, the Salome dressing table from Maisons du Monde has been crafted from solid mango wood. Sitting on angled, tapered legs, it has a simple frame that’s partly open but also features a drawer that features squares of mango wood laid marquetry-style in a diamond pattern and a goldtone handle. At the back you’ll find a large round mirror edged in wood.

Exclusive to Habitat, the elegant Emil birch veneer dressing table features slender legs, a series of stacked and five delicate yet spacious drawers finished with simple black handles and a stunning, oversized mirror at the back.
