To choose the best vanity chair, consider the style and overall look of the table with which it will be paired. Chair height is also crucial so that the mirror-topped table can be fully accessed. If you hope to cut down the amount of clutter on the vanity tabletop, a chair with some capacity for storage can be a good idea. A skirted vanity chair may also be able to be used to store a basket or box of beauty supplies. If you prefer a minimalistic look, a backless, armless chair may work best.

Stool-like vanity chairs may be round or square, but usually have only a padded seat with no back or arms. The advantage of this type of vanity chair is that many of them have adjustable seat height. An open, rather than skirted, vanity stool with attractive metal legs can look very modern and glamorous with a fabric-covered, padded top. An old-fashioned, metal ice cream parlor chair with a floral-patterned cushion can be ideal for a romantic vanity.

A vanity bench with storage under the seat is a popular choice in a backless, armless chair style. Many of these bench vanity chairs are made from fine hardwood with a padded or embroidered top. This kind of vanity chair can be an excellent choice for a wooden table in a similar wood color. Rather than having no furniture arms, some vanity benches are quite elaborate in design with a rolled, upholstered arm. If you have a bedroom with similarly styled pieces, such as a chaise lounge chair, this type of seating may work well for you.

If you'd prefer a vanity seat with a backrest, it's a good idea to remember that the back of the chair is likely to show more than the front. Of course, this will depend on how the vanity table is positioned in your bedroom or bathroom, but in many cases the chair back does show quite prominently, especially if it's tall. Some vanity owners with a tall chair like to give the backrest a significant style statement, such as an applique with their initials. A monogrammed chair can be a great way to personalize and customize your vanity space.

Taking the measurements of your vanity table along with you when you're shopping for a chair to go with it can save you time having to return the piece later if it's the wrong size. If the vanity chair's height isn't adjustable, you'll especially need to consider the measurement from the floor to the edge of the table top. Taking a picture of the table with you can help you pick the vanity chair that will coordinate with this piece of furniture the best.
