Elegant Bathroom Makeup Chair

Elegant Bathroom Makeup Chair


Lightweight and easy to move, this bathroom makeup chair requires assembly. It only weighs 11 lbs, making it easy to move into an adjacent room. Measure your vanity counter opening before purchasing, as the chair is 16.5" wide and 26" tall.

Designer Advice:

The combination of natural cream linen with a golden bronze or pewter steel frame sets the stage in any room with this counter-height vanity chair. The elegant curves in the chair's base and the Art Deco detailing on its seat back would suit a bathroom tiled in marble. Repeat the metal color at least once in your lighting, taps, hardware, or artwork frames.

Button Tufted Bathroom Makeup Stool

Button Tufted Bathroom Makeup Stool

Kelly Clarkson Home

With its backless design, this bathroom makeup stool can discreetly tuck away under the counter or in the corner of your bathroom. The base is made from solid birch wood, and the seat cushion is covered with linen fabric over 2.4" of high-density foam. 

Designer Advice:

The combination of gray upholstery fabric with a white-washed wood base lends a French country vibe to this bathroom vanity stool. Or you can choose a natural greige upholstery that also feels traditionally European. For a completely different feel, choose the bright yellow fabric. If you pick the yellow fabric option, add some sunflowers in your bathroom in wallpaper, on towels or in some accessories.

Designer Advice:

Make a statement in your ensuite with this bathroom vanity chair. The polyester fabric comes in five vivid colors plus soft pink, ivory and mid-tone gray. Find ways to repeat the upholstery fabric in other parts of the room. The easiest way to do this is by creating a palette of three colors, using the chair's upholstery as one of the three. Consider pairing the red upholstery with a bit of orange plus green, and look for a fabric with these three colors.
