Are you curious as to why people tend to love a wood vanity so much? To really understand this, we may need to go back in time. About a century ago, before the invention and proliferation of cheap plastics, wood was still the reigning king of furniture materials. Because the “assembly line” was not yet a widely-used system, wood craftsmanship was a truly valuable trade that required ample artistry and expertise.
Making a wood vanity involved lots of care and pride, and artisans poured themselves into their work. And while many vanities were imitated or copied, they were never mass produced. Because of this, all of these vanities had their own unique character and personality. The owners of a wood vanity had the pride of knowing that they possessed a unique vanity that was built just for them.
I remember when I was a child my grandparents had a great vanity like that, even though my parents didn’t. It stood about five feet tall, and it had a dark stained finish. The legs of the vanity were designed to look like large bear claws. It was a very unique vanity, and one that I remember vividly.
That’s what an antique bath vanity is supposed to do. It is supposed to leave an impression in your mind of a simpler time, even as it captures your imagination. When I walk into a room that has an antique vanity in it, for a moment in my mind, I can travel back to a time when everything was manufactured by hand to represent the epitome of skill and talent, when all things felt real and alive, and artificialty was frowned upon not embraced. It was a time when a wood vanity was put together by adept craftsmen employing all of their knowledge and skill to build something beautiful.
I hope I’m not misunderstood here. I know that the assembly line is not all bad, because after all, it made things like wood vanities more affordable for all people. But I do know for a fact that quality was sacrificed in the name of progress for quantity. Having a wood vanity helps me feel a connection to my ancestors in a way that simple photographs can’t quantify. It takes me to a place where there are no automobiles, no deadlines, and a man or woman could slow down and enjoy life to the fullest measure.
