A pretty, feminine piece of furniture, a personal chest or table with drawers, a mirror and a stool or chair in front to sit on. Designed for girls and ladies when literally dressing up to go out, it’s always positioned in good light in the bedroom, bathroom or dressing room.
Side lamps provide soft lighting, and drawers can store jewellery, hair decorations, make up, purses and evening bags, cards, notes etc. Photos, personal possessions and mementoes are either beautifully ordered on the surface, or more often in eclectic disarray.
The dressing area is a room, or the division of a room separate from the bedroom, reserved for dressing, where floor space is allocated to storing clothes, changing and dressing. It’s usually attached to the bathroom and exercise area, and close to, or part of a boudoir or a study.
