, the new vanity table by Devon&Devon
, is a tribute to unconventional femininity and the irresistible charisma of the wife and muse of the author of “The Great Gatsby”.
As Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald tells in an article which appeared in “McCall’s” magazine in 1925, 'vitality is not inventing something new, but taking old ideas and giving them a life that was lost'.
Doors and drawers, in lacquered wood, are available in three versions: an intense powder pink with tones of mauve, this is a shade of colour that Zelda Fitzgerald loved and which she frequently described in her stories; a cream white that emphasizes the formal purity of the vanity table, enhancing the high contrast with the golden light of the brass elements; and a thin two-tone zig-zag pattern inspired by Art Deco, that recalls the materiality of twill fabrics.
The dresser frame is defined by the sinuous lines of the surfaces and side doors; the rounded semi-circular handles which when closed form a circle; and the round circumference of the big central mirror with its one-metre diameter. The long, thin legs of the table are made of natural brass, the same material used in the profiles (also rounded) which gently accompany the curvatures of the surfaces, doors and rim the diamond mirror and the base of the velvet footstool.
The counter top, divided into three parts to make space for everything required for make-up and hair, is in cremo-extra marble, and is luminous in its candour tinged with pale-yellow streaks. Under the main top, between the two drawers (one of which is a ring holder) there’s a removable tray covered in pink velvet. All the colours can be personalised upon request.
