The Hollywood Swank Furniture Collection is a collaboration between Michael Amini & Jane Seymour. It’s a nod to old Hollywood, the elegance and style that one remembers from classic movies. The vanity table with mirror is just part of a suite of furniture. What Michael Amini has created is a suite of furniture to make everyone want to decorate their entire bedroom with the Hollywood Swank collection. The furniture of the vanity table is wood upholstered in imitation crocodile, or iguana, depending on the model you buy. Looking at the pictures in the brown version of this elegant vanity table with mirror, you can see the detail of the skin. The vanity table comes in three colors, black iguana, white crystal croc and brown gator.
Detail is what makes this vanity table so different. There are imitation rhinestones along the top edge of the table. Also mirrors are used to create a polished surface look throughout the vanity table. Each of the three tops of the table is covered with mirror. There are beveled mirror edges along the left and right front sides of the table. All this mirroring reflects the uniqueness and craftsmanship of the Aico Amini brand. Just a lot of attention to detail that normally would not exist in other types of furniture. Also, remember that this furniture is trying to harken to another era, and that is the kind of detail that you would have found in the furniture of those bygone days.

And finally, there is the main 3 sided folding mirror. This mirror can be folded to your needs, up to 90 degrees. Beyond that, is not recommended since it can cause damage to the light bulbs.. Also, there are 10 dimmable lights along the center mirror. These can be controlled by a knob on the bottom of the center mirror, till the brightness is at your comfort level. The borders of the beveled mirrors around the center mirror on black and brown model are lined with faux leather with imitation rhinestones, to match the edge of the table. Considering that this is par for the course in all three models, Aico Amini is ensuring uniformity among the the different color sets. Whether you decide to get your vanity set in white, brown or black, you know that each one is going to come with the same high quality and the same specifications that make the Aico Amini brand such a respected one in the industry.

There is enough room for everything on this vanity table. The width of the table is almost 5 feet. The depth is 18 inches, which is a good depth for being able to reach everything easily. The table is 36 inches in height. However, with the mirror attached, the table stands at 7 feet. The mirror is 48 inches tall, giving you enough room not only to look at yourself while putting on makeup, but also to look at your outfit after you’ve gotten dressed.
The table is supported by 4 short “feet” made of molded chrome metal with a fleur de lys design. This is a vanity table for a large room that can accommodate it. Also, you should know that although the vanity table comes pre-assembled, you will have to screw in the small feet I previously mentioned. The legs on the bench also have to be screwed in. The mirror also requires assembly, the bulbs however, are included.

Although the specifications of the vanity table describe it as having 11 drawers, it really only has 5 real drawers. The other 6 ” drawers” are really 2 doors on either side of the vanity table with the outside carved to resemble 3 faux drawers. The storage space behind the doors has been divided in two. This allows space for larger items that may not necessarily fit into the top drawers, like electric curlers, makeup cases and the like. The five drawers on top are arranged in the following fashion: a low height drawer followed by a taller drawer on either side, and a large drawer in the middle. I think that part of the decisions for making these faux drawers were based for design reasons. As you look at the unit from the front, there is this illusion of 5 drawers on each side, giving the furniture symmetry and balance. Also, it may not have been practical to have drawers all the way to the bottom of the table, so the choice to have doors that looked like drawers may have also had an influence on how the doors were designed.

There are two small drawers on the left and right side, and a large middle drawer. The top left drawer has an electrical outlet with two balanced plugs so that you can connect your hair dryer curling iron, or phone charger. There is also plenty of space to store accessories that you use all the time, like a hair dryer and your makeup for instance. There is enough capacity to store a good variety of things that you use all the time, so you never have to go hunting around the room to try to find some accessory or makeup that you would use in your beauty ritual on a regular basis. Having an electrical outlet in a drawer is not something you’re going to find on the vast majority of vanities out there. It’s these kinds of touches that set the Hollywood Swank Vanity Table apart from others.
This particular vanity table with mirror set also comes with the optional Leather Vanity Bench. The bench is another quality elegant item. The seat of the bench is covered with leather. The bottom edge of the leather is lined with dual rows of imitation rhinestones, just like the edge of the vanity table. The legs are carved white metal, with a matte finish suggesting platinum. The cushion of the bench has a dimpled criss cross finish, with a stone in the center of each indentation. It is reminiscent of a Chanel bag when viewed from the top.
In conclusion, this is the most elegant vanity table with mirror available. The care and elegant design that has gone into this vanity table cannot be matched by any other. If you are in the market to buy the best of the best, an item that will last you for decades, the Hollywood Swank Vanity Sets with Mirror are going to be the best investment you can make. Here you can see Michael Amini and Jane Seymour speak of the furniture collection.
