  • Tip 1: Take advantage of natural light in the room by placing the vanity desk in front of a window and use a floor lamp during evening hours. Before you order this desk, measure the window and the available space around the window to ensure that the desk will fit properly.
  • Tip 2: Consider choosing a small bench instead of a desk chair to pair with the Elsie Classic Vanity Desk. If you decide to go with a bench, make sure that it has ample padding for comfort. Our Glam Vanity Stool comes in white and matches the style of the desk with a fur cushion for personality.
  • Tip 3: Mirror the classiness of this vanity desk with our Ooh La La Swivel Chair. It features back support and scalloped edges for decoration. Bring a pop of color to the desk and choose the swivel chair in our teal Pool color for vibrancy.
  • Tip 4: Pick a rug with character to go under the Elsie Classic Vanity Desk. While a white rug will complement the desk, consider bringing in some eye-catching color with a patterned rug that contrasts against the white finish. If you choose our Glam Vanity Stool to use with this desk, then a white shag rug will tie the design theme together.
  • Tip 5: Adorn the vanity desk with colorful bottles and vases to add visual interest. Antique glass pairs nicely with the classic style of this desk, bringing a graceful touch that mirrors the elegant curves of the geometric patterns.
